Description Lennart Poettering 2010-11-23 23:24:16 UTC
Your package arm4 appears to include a file in /var/run or /var/lock. With an upcoming change in Rawhide these directories will now be mounted as tmpfs. For details about this change please consult http://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/devel-announce/2010-November/000726.html For your package this means that you need add %ghost to all files that are placed in either of these two directories. Please make sure to make this change in time for the F15 cycle. For details about %ghost see http://www.rpm.org/max-rpm-snapshot/s1-rpm-inside-files-list-directives.html#S3-RPM-INSIDE-FLIST-GHOST-DIRECTIVE , for more information on the F15 feature see the feature page https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/var-run-tmpfs . If your package already uses %ghost on these files, feel free to close this bug report right-away. Sorry for this mass bug filing, and if you have any further questions, don't hesitate to ask on fedora-devel or ask me personally. Thank you, Lennart

Comment 1 Fedora End Of Life 2013-04-03 19:51:45 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 19 development cycle.
Changing version to '19'.

(As we did not run this process for some time, it could affect also pre-Fedora 19 development
cycle bugs. We are very sorry. It will help us with cleanup during Fedora 19 End Of Life. Thank you.)
