Description of Problem:

When I try to rebuild the shadow-utils package as distributed in limbo, I get
the following error:

    Installed (but unpackaged) file(s) found:

This seems to be due to a behaviour change in rpm that should be compensated for.

Do you have redhat-rpm-config installed?
Comment 2 Nalin Dahyabhai 2002-08-14 02:24:04 EDT
This is not a bug.  RHL ships with the util-linux versions of chfn, chsh, and
login, and the shellutils version of su.  If this is preventing binary packages
from being generated (it doesn't on my system -- a binary package is produced),
then please reopen this bug, otherwise it's an expected warning.
Comment 3 Daniel Resare 2002-08-15 05:39:46 EDT
Installing redhat-rpm-config does the difference changes the error into a
warning and packages gets built anyway.

I believe this will bite many people, perhaps making rpm-build require
redhat-rpm-config would be a good idea?
