Description Nathan G. Grennan 2002-08-02 11:05:13 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.5 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20020712

Description of problem:
I compile almost everything as a user other than root on my sysstem. This idea
seems especially wise after the recent trojaning of a openssh tarball. I do so
with .rpmmarcos and have my rpm building tmp directory set to something other
than /var/tmp because I have set far temp to be a tmpfs. I have run into a
number of rpms that have Buildroot hard set instead of the variables. Please
change the spec file from  "Buildroot:   /var/tmp/mozilla-root" to  "Buildroot:
  %{_tmppath}/%{name}-root" or ideally to "Buildroot:   %{_tmppath}/%{name}".
Then I won't have to forever be modifying the mozilla spec file.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Read mozilla.spec

Actual Results:  Buildroot:   /var/tmp/mozilla-root

Expected Results:  Buildroot:   %{_tmppath}/%{name}

Additional info:

Limbo beta2

While I have your attention, why is their an ExclusiveArch of i386 set on
mozilla in the spec file?

As of mozilla-1.2.1 the Buildroot is still hard set.

Closing really old bug that I see if now fixed.
