Description Jakub Hrozek 2007-10-03 11:03:53 EDT
Description of problem:
In nfs-libs's spec, files in /var/lib/nfs hierarchy are not marked as 
noverify. Since these files are meant to change, it results in unnecessary 
gripes during rpm -V.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -V nfs-utils

Actual results:
messages like
S.5....TC c /var/lib/nfs/rmtab
........?   /var/lib/nfs/rpc_pipefs

Expected results:
clean output
Comment 1 Jeff Layton 2007-10-16 12:34:54 EDT
Do you have an example of the specfile changes that need to be made, or even
some documentation that explains how to tag things with %noverify? I'm having
trouble finding any.
Comment 2 Jakub Hrozek 2007-10-17 06:43:05 EDT
Sorry, the opening comment was really confusing..not actually %noverify (I 
don't think there is a such directive :) ), I was thinking along the lines 
of %verify(not md5 size mtime)..
Comment 3 Jeff Layton 2007-10-29 17:22:48 EDT
Test packages with these changes are available on my people page:


Please test them and report back whether this is fixed.
Comment 4 Jakub Hrozek 2007-11-01 14:05:57 EDT
Yes, this is fixed, I did verify with both specfile inspection (contains 
the %verify(not md5 size mtime)) and a simple testcase:

Old packages:
# echo "foobar" > /var/lib/nfs/rmtab
# rpm -V nfs-utils
S.5....T  c /var/lib/nfs/rmtab

New packages:
# echo "foobar" > /var/lib/nfs/rmtab
# rpm -V nfs-utils

Thank you!
