Description Peter Åstrand 2008-09-15 16:55:11 EDT
This is a continuation of bug 56040. The --nodirtokens option is *still* broken. It creates packages with empty CPIO archives. I've verified this on:

* Red Hat 7.3 with rpm-4.0.4-7x.18
* Fedora Core 6 with rpm-
* Fedora 8 with rpm-

I've also verified that the ChangeLog for doesn't mention anything about this. I can try the latest GIT as well, if necessary (but the build fails currently on my systems). 

It's easy to verify the problem: Just run rpm2cpio on the resulting package, and you will get something like:


That is, no actual files.

Easily reproduced, easily fixed... Upstream now, Fedora will get it after the beta freeze.

Patch against RPM 4.0.4

You are my hero! Thanks. 

Attaching a patch against RPM 4.0.4, if anyone's interested.
Comment 3 Panu Matilainen 2008-10-01 05:07:54 EDT
In rawhide now (rpm-4.5.90-0.git8514.1)

FWIW I've also applied it to rpm 4.4.x branch so the next maintenance release for that will get it too. rpm 4.0.4 isn't going to see maintenance releases I'm afraid :)

rpm- has been pushed to the Fedora 9 stable repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
