Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 51744
dirs not owned by any package
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:35:53 EDT
The directories in the attached list are not currently owned by any
package. They should be owned by the package listed. When the packages
are installed RPM will throw warnings about creating directories. Jeff
Johnson has already stated that future versions of RPM will not allow this,
and these are easy to fix.
Honestly, if the errors/requests are filed on a package-by-package basis, it'll
be much easier to track.
Bugzilla doesn't seem to like my attachment. There are 170+ affected packages,
so it would be _very_ time consuming to file a seperate bug for each package.
The complete list is available at http://www.scyld.com/~pzb/unowneddirs.1
It's too large a list to commit to for this release. I'm marking it deferred
for now and we'll try to re-examine in for a future release. Thanks for the
I just wanted to get it into bugzilla. I didn't expect it to be fixed this late
in the cycle. May I suggest that the script that I attached to Bug #51582 be
used to help find these errors in the future?
