I'm attempting to rebuild the XFree86 4.0.2 source rpm from
on a redhat 6.2 system. It fails because the file
xc/programs/Xserver/hw/xfree86/drivers/mga/mga_g450pll.c is a dos text
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run rpm --rebuild XFree86-4.0.2-6.src.rpm
Actual Results: make fails on mga_g450pll.c with error messages about
Expected Results: make should run to completion and give me a new source
I'm trying to get this source rpm rebuilt for rh62. I have XFree86 402
installed from the XFree86.org web site to do this.
Basically I think the patch that creates mga_g450pll.c is bad, and anyone
who attempts to rebuild this source rpm will have the same problem.
This is a known glitch with the patches Matrox sent us for that release
and has been corrected since then. The current Matrox patches in my
latest tree still do not completely work yet, but we're working on it.
Do not file bugs against Rawhide packages in Red Hat 6.2 please. They
should be filed against RAWHIDE. Before filing a bug against Rawhide, you
should always check the absolute latest Rawhide packages to see if the
bug has been fixed already. You might also want to experiment with my
personal package releases on ftp://people.redhat.com/mharris/XFree86 which
are usually more current than Rawhide. I release them there first for
people to test, which then gets fed into rawhide.
Thanks for pointing this glitch out, nonetheless!
