Description Thomas Fitzsimmons 2008-03-07 11:39:25 EST
Description of problem:

rpmlint is flagging IcedTea's src subpackage with the only-non-binary-in-usr-lib

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Build IcedTea RPMs: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=433070
2. rpmlint $rpm_topdir/RPMS/i386/java-1.6.0-openjdk-src-

Actual results:

java-1.6.0-openjdk-src.i386: E: only-non-binary-in-usr-lib

Expected results:

No output.  This is a subpackage, split out purely for size purposes.  It seems
arbitrary to say that because src.zip happens to be architecture-independent,
and happens to be the only file in the -src subpackage, that it needs to go in
/usr/share.  src.zip needs to in $JAVA_HOME so that IDEs can locate it properly.
Comment 1 Ville Skyttä 2008-03-07 14:25:19 EST
Apart for some very specific checks on installed packages, the unit of work for
rpmlint is one package, and it has no way of knowing whether something is a
subpackage or not.  I don't have any ideas right how to address this issue apart
from just ignoring rpmlint's message.  Others?
