Description Carl Roth 2009-03-15 21:04:40 UTC
Description of problem:

If you define two triggers in a SPEC that are triggered from the same source, rpm-4.6 generates invalid trigger sections in the RPM, and the rpm tool crashes when processing the resultant RPM.

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


(this bug does not affect rpm- as with F9)

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a spec file with duplicate trigger sources (see attached)
2. Generate the rpm using F9 and F10
3. Query the rpm using F9 and F10
Actual results:

F9 behaves as expected.
F10 generates an invalid RPM, and afterwards the rpm tool crashes when trying to process it.

Expected results:

Additional info:

F9 behaves as expected: the RPM contains multiple triggers keyed to the same trigger source.

$ rpm -qp --triggers foo-0.0-0.i386.rpm
triggerin scriptlet (using /bin/sh) -- some-package
triggerin scriptlet (using /bin/sh) -- some-package

F10 generates an invalid RPM -- only the first trigger has a valid trigger source.

F10's rpm crashes (segfault) when analyzing this RPM (rpm -qp --triggers XXX).

F9's rpm can analyze both RPMs, but the RPM generated by F10 appears to be invalid (as described above)

F10 can handle the RPM generated by F9; the multiple triggers appear correctly.

$ rpm -qp --triggers foo-0.0-0.x86_64.rpm
triggerin scriptlet (using /bin/sh) -- some-package
trigger: scriptlet (using /bin/sh) --

[note that the second trigger appears invalid]

As a matter of discussion, I am not asking that either RPM version support multiple triggers with the same source -- in my case this was a bug in my SPEC file.  I *would* expect, though, that if it is unsupported, that RPM would report an error or warning, like it does for duplicate %post sections.

Thanks for the reproducer, will fix.

Comment 3 Panu Matilainen 2009-09-15 09:51:41 UTC
Fixed in rawhide (and upstream) now. Multiple triggers are intentionally permitted, rpm just sees this as two distinct trigger scripts with identical condition, eg

%trigger -- some-package
echo A

%trigger -- some-package
echo B
