Description Dan Kelley 2001-05-19 15:42:09 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-2 i686)

Description of problem:
When I do 
	rpm -bb myproject.spec
I get errors such as
	Finding  Requires: (using /usr/lib/rpm/find-requires)...
	objdump: /var/tmp/gri-root/usr/bin/gri_merge: File format not recognized
where "gri_merge" is a perlscript, recognized as such by the "find"

Should I be doing something in my SPEC file to indicate the "file format"?


How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -bb gri.spec

Actual Results:  ...

Finding  Requires: (using /usr/lib/rpm/find-requires)...
objdump: /var/tmp/gri-root/usr/bin/gri_merge: File format not recognized


Expected Results:  Well, I didn't expect this warning, or error, or
whatever it is!

Additional info:

I don't think this happened before I upgraded from RH 7.0 to 7.1, but I'm
not sure.

There's nothing you have to do. The file(1) /etc/magic has changed, breaking
the find-requires logic that normally feeds only ELF binaries to objdump.
Doesn't hurt anything at all to feed perl scripts to objdump, it's just an
error message.
