Missing awk in vfs scripts
Last modified: 2013-07-02 19:24:09 EDT
Description of problem:
Actual 'awk' text in the external vfs scripts is missing, causing many vfs
types to fail (at least lslr, ualz, uarj, uha, ulha, urar, and uzoo).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
F8 and development. F6 is OK, didn't check F7
Steps to Reproduce: (using rar as an example)
2.Install mc, urar (or rar)
3.Open mc, try to open a rar (or other type listed above)
Smth like: "-v: command not found"
mc pane with rar archive contents
Looks like awk was not found when 'configure' was run during RPM build.
IE, in /usr/share/mc/extfs/urar, we have for F6:
$UNRAR v -c- "$1" | gawk -v uid=`id -u` -v gid=`id -g` '
In F8, we have:
$UNRAR v -c- "$1" | -v uid=`id -u` -v gid=`id -g` '
Note missing gawk command.
Is awk considered part of a minimal Fedora install? Other extfs scripts use
perl or sed. If we don't want to require awk, maybe time to look again at bz
223726, suggesting splitting mc extfs into a separate package.
Yes, update to F8 which fixes this was pushed yesterday. Thanks for the
description and investigation though!
The bug was introduces when experiments with minimal buildroot contents were
made and gawk was erroneously excluded from the minimal list. gawk is back again
