Description of Problem:
Downloaded the src rpm for ash-0.2-26 to rebuild it against a different
libc and it DID compile and run, but the shell scripts i use dont run under
it. So I rebuild it against my 7.0 (up to date as of 5/7) and I get the
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm --recompile ash-0.2-26.src.rpm
An ash shell that works just like the one in the binary package w/ the 7.0
I really cant work with this much info.
In what way do they fail? What is it doing, that it was not?
Closing, it builds on the current release which is what is supports.
The Issue is that following the property recoompile steps does NOT produce the
equivelant binary package that is being distributed. Yes it compiles and builds
and all that....but if i install it, i get a DIFFERENT ash that does not
function the same as the version that you (RH) built and distributed, even
though the package ash-0.2-26.src.rpm should produce the EXACT equivalent of
It should produce an equivalent binary on an identical system - yours isn't.
I built it on a RedHat 7.0 system Fully updated (as of that time). The binary
produced DID NOT FUNCTION THE SAME. ITs been a long time now so i dont recall
the exact differences, but basically there werer a binch of my shell scripts
AND REDHAT scripts that DID NOT RUN UNDER THAT COMPILED VERSION. Ash would
report back syntax errors. But using the pre-compiled RH version they worked.
That is a bug.
