rpmlint error (use-of-home-in-%post) against 7.1 postgresql-server rpm
Last modified: 2015-01-07 18:46:10 EST
Description of Problem: rpmlint throws an error message against 7.1
How Reproducible: always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install 7.1 on x86 system
2. Mount OS CD#1
3. rpmlint /mnt/cdrom/RedHat/RPMS/postgresql-server-7.0.3-8.i386.rpm
E: postgresql-server use-of-home-in-%post
Expected Results: no output expected
It appends information to the ~/.bashrc for the server-specific user in post,
the account is created in pre. Not a problem. A workaround could be deviced to
get rid of the warning, but it would just get rid of the warning and not solve
any fundamental problems.
I'm trying to determine if I should ignore this message in the automated rpmlint
tests. Should I just not worry about this message and filter it out, or are you
planning on making a change to this rpm (I couldn't tell from your response)?
I'll probably work around it (I'm adding this along with other changes right
now), but it's not a bug.
