Description Niko Mirthes 2002-01-14 00:43:01 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.0.2 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20011226

Description of problem:
I noticed a broken symlink in ttmkfdir2.tar.bz2, in the freetype-2.0.5 source
rpm from rawhide. Unpacking it and
doing ls -al in the ttmkfdir2 directory shows:

 .#xx -> jpo@localhost.localdomain.3733:947410086

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.install the freetype src.rpm
2.upack ttmkfdir2.tar.bz2
3.ls -al in the ttmkfdir2 directory


Actual Results:  i noticed the broken symlink

Expected Results:  the symlink shouldn't be there?

That is just a harmless symlink that happened to be in the dir when the
author or whoever created the tarball I guess.  We ship the original
authors tarballs, unmodified, and patch them if necessary to fix any
problems.  While it is ugly, it is harmless and minor.
