Description Mamoru TASAKA 2009-09-14 18:01:04 UTC
Created attachment 360980 [details]
sample spec file

Description of problem:
With the attached sample spec file, rpmlint warns:

[tasaka1@localhost SPECS]$ rpmlint ../RPMS/noarch/shebang-test-0-1.fc12.noarch.rpm 
shebang-test.noarch: W: spurious-executable-perm /usr/share/doc/shebang-test-0/sample.sh
shebang-test.noarch: W: doc-file-dependency /usr/share/doc/shebang-test-0/sample.sh R

However there is no dependency against R.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpmbuild -bb shebang-test.spec (where
   shebang-test.spec is the attached one)
2. try rpmlint on the rebuilt binary rpm
Actual results:
See above

Expected results:
No R dependency shown

Comment 1 Ville Skyttä 2009-09-14 21:00:55 UTC
Huh?  This is due to some changes in rpm.  --filerequire shows it as well:

$ rpm -qp --filerequire shebang-test-0-1.fc11.noarch.rpm
/usr/share/doc/shebang-test-0/sample.sh R /bin/sh

I see the "R" there with both F-10's rpm-4.6.1-1.fc10.i386 and F-11's rpm-4.7.1-1.fc11.x86_64.  With CentOS 5's rpm- it's not there:

$ rpm -qp --filerequire shebang-test-0-1.fc11.noarch.rpm
/usr/share/doc/shebang-test-0/sample.sh /bin/sh

In the python bindings, everything from hdr[rpm.RPMTAG_FILEREQUIRE] seems to come out as "R $something" strings.  This seems to be a query time thing with newer rpm versions, not something hardwired into the headers at build time (it is shown with F-11's rpm also for EL-5 packages).

I don't have anything between EL-5's and F-10's rpm to test with.  Panu, Jindrich, thoughts?  Maybe related to http://rpm.org/gitweb?p=rpm.git;a=commitdiff;h=3d8656f040d2c780c88d0cd63594898f0605a6fa ?

Yup, unintended (and until now, unnoticed :) change of behavior in that commit, fixed now: http://rpm.org/gitweb?p=rpm.git;a=commitdiff;h=d846e6b0f829791e6ffce4fd496c9378bff19c43

Comment 3 Ville Skyttä 2009-09-15 17:43:23 UTC
Thanks, Panu.  I'm not yet sure if I'll bother trying to work around this in rpmlint, but probably not.  Reassiging to rpm and adjusting summary to track fixed package release status.
