Description Oliver Falk 2007-07-04 10:30:33 EDT
Please have a look:

It happens on alpha and i386, didn't tried another arch.
Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2007-07-04 12:00:24 EDT
This seems to be due to a change in redhat-rpm-config.
Comment 2 Oliver Falk 2007-07-04 12:16:50 EDT
Yup. That could be likely possible :-)
Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2007-07-05 09:38:37 EDT
It's because the 'find' bit in /usr/lib/rpm/find-lang.sh uses 'type -f' instead
of 'type -f -o -type -l'.  The missing files were symbolic links.

I've patched coreutils to work around it for the moment.
Comment 4 Oliver Falk 2007-07-05 09:58:53 EDT
OK. Great. I should have found that myself; But I had no time to do so. :-(
Thx Tim!
Comment 5 Jeff Johnson 2007-07-10 15:35:22 EDT
Heh. find-lang.sh @rpm5.org has added the symlink test so that
CentOS5/RHEL5 coreutils can be rebuilt by non-redhat rpm.
Comment 6 Panu Matilainen 2007-07-11 03:24:09 EDT
Hehheh. It's on rpm.org as well, I just forgot from but will be in
final. I'll close this one when it lands in rawhide.
Comment 7 Panu Matilainen 2007-07-23 07:40:11 EDT
Fixed in next rawhide build by final.
