Description Miloslav Trmac 2002-06-22 19:57:33 EDT
Description of problem:
When you "open" an RPM file (such as the last ghostscript all-in-one-package
update (why was it needed, BTW?)), the INFO/OBSOLETES file is always empty. The
/usr/lib/mc lists OBSOLETES, but doesn't provide a way to get it in the
mcrpmfs_copyout() function.

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

Comment 2 Miloslav Trmac 2002-06-23 10:00:37 EDT
Note that the same fix has to be applied to /usr/lib/vfs/rpm, package gnome-vfs
(or possibly its equivalent in gnome 2). Don't you love duplicate files?
Comment 3 Miloslav Trmac 2002-10-05 19:41:34 EDT
The same in 8.0
Comment 4 Havoc Pennington 2002-10-05 20:05:12 EDT
Can you also submit this patch upstream, www.gnome.org/projects/mc? 
That way the maintainers of mc can review it, and it gets incorporated into 
the main mc version.

trivial patch to mc 4.6.0 (/usr/share/mc/extfs/rpm)

Still the same in 9.0 (using mc 4.6.0). 
INFO/LICENSE is always empty too. Since %{LICENSE} and %{COPYRIGHT} are always 
identical (AFAIK) and "License:" shows up after an "rpm -qi (...)" I suggest to
INFO/LICENSE and to drop INFO/COPYRIGHT. Please find attached my trivial patch
(also covering INFO/OBSOLETES).
I'll try to submit either my patch or a bugreport upstream and hope to return
here with an url (or 
something likewise).
Comment 6 Paul Bolle 2003-07-10 17:51:31 EDT
OK, here's the url of my upstreams bugreport: 
https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?func=detailbug&bug_id=4271&group_id=3521 (let's just hope it 
wasn't a duplicate report ...)

patch against mc-4.6.0-14.10

Easy fix and still not addressed. Please apply with the next update.
Comment 8 Leonard den Ottolander 2004-08-18 17:44:35 EDT
Yes yes, it's unbelievable but true: This has been fixed upstream!
Closing NEXTRELEASE as I assume this will be in one of the next releases.
Comment 9 Leonard den Ottolander 2004-08-22 07:02:59 EDT
Please also add this tiny patch before the next security update. TIA.

Fixed upstream and in RawHide.
