ok, seems to work a friend's machine w/o changing srpm, custom 2.4.13 kernel, RH 7.1

not a bug?  or is it still worth it?
Comment 3 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-11-20 10:04:49 EST
Hm, works for me... By any chance are you using an ancient version of rpm?
Comment 4 Eido Inoue 2004-11-05 14:20:31 EST
not seeing this with most recent/current rpmbuild and/or console-tools
