Description Nicolas Mailhot 2002-04-29 11:22:18 EDT

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.0 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20020408

Description of problem:
When fed up a zip source the RedHat version of the %setup rpm macro will try to
untar it.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Get a specfile that uses a zip source
(a good example is
2. Try to build it
Weep as rpm tries tu untar the zip

Actual Results:  rpm tries tu untar the zip

+ cd /usr/src/redhat/BUILD
+ rm -rf /var/tmp/jaf-1.0.1-buildroot
+ cd /usr/src/redhat/BUILD
+ rm -rf jaf-1.0.1
+ tar -xvvf /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES/jaf1_0_1.zip

Expected Results:  + cd /usr/src/redhat/BUILD
+ rm -rf /var/tmp/jaf-1.0.1-buildroot
+ cd /usr/src/redhat/BUILD
+ rm -rf jaf-1.0.1
+ unzip /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES/jaf1_0_1.zip

Additional info:

1. This specfile (and a lot of others) where written by mandrake users, so the
mandrake version of rpm should be sane

2. tested both on rawhide (rpm-4.0.4-7x.16) and RH 7.2 (rpm-4.0.4-7x)

This is a major pain, we do a lot of java inhouse and java software is usually
distributed as zipfiles. Sometimes the licence prohibits distribution of
anything other than the nosrc.rpm and the url of the zip.

This seems to work with RH 8.0, thanks
