Description Stephen Rasku 2002-04-17 02:23:43 EDT
Description of Problem:

Source RPMS install into /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES.  The filesystem doesn't
provide this directory or even /usr/src/redhat.  This means that you can't
install SRPMS without manually creating these directories. 
/usr/src/redhat/SOURCES should be part of the filesystem.

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


How Reproducible:
