Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 380881
Leftover .orig file patched by a .src.rpm .patch file
Last modified: 2008-07-24 15:56:44 EDT
Description of problem:
`gdb/linux-nat.c.orig' file is accidentally being patched.
While the package passed Brew/Rpmdiff/RHEL-4 builds in some system
configurations (env $SIMPLE_BACKUP_SUFFIX) and/or on non-RHEL-4 systems the
--rebuild of the package may fail due to the missing .orig file there.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. SIMPLE_BACKUP_SUFFIX=foo rpmbuild --rebuild gdb-126.96.36.199-1.153.el4.src.rpm
+ echo 'Patch #112 (gdb-6.3-scheduler_locking-step-sw-watchpoints2.patch):'
Patch #112 (gdb-6.3-scheduler_locking-step-sw-watchpoints2.patch):
+ patch -p1 -s
The text leading up to this was:
|diff -u -rup gdb-6.3-orig/gdb/linux-nat.c.orig gdb-6.3/gdb/linux-nat.c.orig
|--- gdb-6.3-orig/gdb/linux-nat.c.orig 2004-10-08 22:29:47.000000000 +0200
|+++ gdb-6.3/gdb/linux-nat.c.orig 2007-07-27 15:59:39.000000000 +0200
File to patch:
Successfully rebuilt package.
Sure just the .orig part of the patch should be removed.
