Description Forrest 2002-03-26 13:25:18 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.9) Gecko/20020314

Description of problem:
After installation of the dev package, /dev/logi* (/dev/logibm, /dev/logimouse,
etc.) files have a semicolon followed by 8 alphanumeric characters which
correspond to the file hash used to verify each file.  `rpm -Uvv --force
dev-3.2-12.i386.rpm` showed that the hash and the file name match (i.e.
/dev/logibm;3ca0b332).  I am hypothesizing that this is rpm, because the same
thing happened on my 7.2 machine when I upgraded to the new rpm updates.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Install dev with rpm-4.0.4-7x*
2.  rpm -V dev shows /dev/logi* missing (unless it was an upgrade, in which case
the original /dev/logi* files remain)

Actual Results:  /dev/logi* files were 'missing' according to rpm -V, and they
have alphanumeric characters appended to the file name.

Expected Results:  /dev/logi* should not have anything appended to the file name.

Are there errors in the install.log or upgrade.log?

Are there errors in the install.log or upgrade.log?
Comment 3 Forrest 2002-03-26 15:43:36 EST
No.  `grep -v Installing /tmp/install.log` yeilds nothing.  The file contains an
entry for dev-3.2-12, but no errors.

I straced a "rpm -Uvh --force" of this package, looking for mknod() and rename()
syscalls, and saw a mostly 1:1 match, except for the nodes where we get this
(rename() was not called, leaving it with the temporary device node's name).
Comment 5 Jeff Johnson 2002-03-27 11:23:01 EST
There's an errant strcmp in lib/fsm.c that avoids
creating sockets that never should have been put
into the dev package.
Comment 6 Jeff Johnson 2002-03-27 14:34:12 EST
Fixed in rpm-4.0.4-7x.9.
