Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 656723
Please Update Spec File to use %ghost on files in /var/run and /var/lock
Last modified: 2012-05-31 15:39:35 EDT
Your package xemacs 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
As far as I can tell from code spelunking, the /var/lock/xemacs directory has not been used since XEmacs 21.2.14 was released ... in 1999. How about if we just stop creating a useless directory in the XEmacs RPM? :-)
I'll push a new build today with this and a few other fixes. Thanks for the report.
New version built without /var/lock/xemacs in Rawhide.
