Description Jens Petersen 2009-05-17 21:06:36 EDT
Description of problem:
If one has an ~/.rpmmacros file that overrides where rpm looks for source files etc, then publican breaks.

Steps to Reproduce:
$ cat > ~/.rpmmacros <<EOF
%__pwd %(echo $PWD)
%_builddir %__pwd
%_rpmdir %__pwd
%_sourcedir %__pwd
%_specdir %__pwd
%_srcrpmdir %__pwd
$ cd mybook
$ make srpm-en_US   # or web-srpm-en-US,) etc
Actual results:
START: web-srpm-en-US: Mon May 18 10:51:14 EST 2009
rpmbuild --define "_topdir /home/petersen/tmp/rhel-ig/tmp/rpm" --define "dist .fc10" -bs tmp/rpm/SPECS/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux-Installation_Guide-en-US.spec
error: File /home/petersen/tmp/rhel-ig/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux-Installation_Guide-5-3.1-en-US.tgz: No such file or directory
make: *** [web-srpm-en-US] Error 1

Expected results:
publican needs to override %_srcrpmdir, %_rpmdir, %_sourcedir, and probably %_specdir
so that it always uses tmp/rpm even if .rpmmacros exists.
Comment 1 Jens Petersen 2009-05-22 00:37:18 EDT
This also applies to building publican itself (eg make rpm).
Comment 2 Bug Zapper 2009-06-09 12:00:35 EDT
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.

Comment 3 Michael Hideo 2009-06-16 22:19:12 EDT
Adding to my Feature list for additional analysis post docs.redhat.com rebase.
Comment 4 Jeff Fearn 2009-08-10 19:27:42 EDT
This should be fixed in the BETA.
Comment 5 Ruediger Landmann 2009-09-08 20:25:20 EDT
Fixed in 1.0 

With ~/.rpmmacros set to contain the same as in the original report:

$ publican package --lang=en-US
