Red Hat Product Errata RHBA-2007:0571 normal SHIPPED_LIVE e2fsprogs bug fix update 2007-10-30 23:04:17 UTC

Description Eric Sandeen 2007-06-25 21:18:25 UTC
e2fsprogs does not seem to (always) generate multilib-safe packages.

the specfile does:

make -C po update-po

prior to the build, which regens the po files.  However, regenerating on
different build machines for different arches leads to different timestamps, and
therefore different md5sums, and multilib conflicts.

There is a patch,


which tries to use sed to remove the date stamps, but it doesn't seem to catch
this case.  I think we got lucky before and just happened to get the same
timestamp on all arches; maybe it was brew-built on a slow day.  :)

I'll attach the proposed patch, just an extension of the current
e2fsprogs-1.38-no_pottcdate.patch patch.

Comment 1 Eric Sandeen 2007-06-25 21:19:37 UTC
requesting 5.1 acks; can't get other 5.1 bugfixes through the errata process w/o
this, I think (packaging issues that cropped up)
