Description H.J. Lu 2011-08-05 18:55:28 UTC
build/files.c in rpm-4.9.1 has

    /* Arrange trailing slash on directories */
    if (fl->isDir)
        diskPath = rstrcat(&diskPath, "/");

which leads to a trailing slash on directories in file list
in a rpm.  It is incompatible with rpms built with older
rpm, which require directories without trailing slash on

Yes, 4.9.1 is a broken brown-paperbag release, this has been fixed in Note that 4.9.1 was never pushed as an update for F15 so it's not affected, unless you manually build rpm from dist-git which does currently have 4.9.1 (it was intended to go as an update to f15 but will obviously be skipped and should land there soonish).

Comment 2 H.J. Lu 2011-08-16 13:20:17 UTC
I built rpm from git repository, which still has the broken 4.9.1.

Comment 3 Panu Matilainen 2011-08-17 10:25:08 UTC
rpm- is in dist-git now, closing this as F15 was only affected at the git repository level. And actual update is also being built right now but that's another story.
