Description of problem:
rpm-4.0.3-1.03 (supplied with 7.2)
doesn't find matching files using built-in ftp client.
Used to work with rpm-4.0.2-7x (Updated 7.0)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -Fvvh ftp://192.168.0.101:/pub/RedHat/Updates/7.2/wu*
D: logging into 192.168.0.101 as ftp, pw (username)
D: found 0 source and 0 binary packages
2. Specifing wu-ftpd-2.6.1-20.i386.rpm works fine (the file exists on the ftp
3. Globbing works if file is in current dir (local)
ie. rpm -Fvh ./wu*
Actual Results: wu-ftpd-2.6.1-20 was not found on ftp server
Expected Results: wu-ftpd package should have been updated
I can't believe this is the first report of this. (Searches turned up empty).
This will break thousands of scripts if it is real.
Fixed in rpm-4.0.3 final, packages at ftp://ftp.rpm.org/pub/rpm/dist/rpm-4.0.x
Thanks, that works. Um, shouldn't this be easier to find, like in Errata? Or
are we sweeping it under the rug?
