Description Enrico Scholz 2002-09-13 09:53:25 EDT
Description of Problem:

Because this package contains unowned directories, they will be created
with the current umask. When having restrictive administrator settings
(umask 077) ordinary user will not have access to them and can not use

Another problem occurs when removing packages. Then orphaned directories
are remaining.

| $ rpm -qf /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0/i386-linux-thread-multi/auto/RPM2 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0/i386-linux-thread-multi/auto/RPM2/RPM2.bs
| file /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0/i386-linux-thread-multi/auto/RPM2 is not owned by any package
| perl-RPM2-0.44-4

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


How Reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. umask 077
2. make sure that perl-RPM2 is uninstalled completely
   (rm -rf /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0/i386-linux-thread-multi/auto/RPM2)
3. rpm -U perl-RPM2-0.44-4.*
4. ls -l /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0/i386-linux-thread-multi/auto/RPM2
5. start perl script using this module
6. rpm -e perl-RPM2-0.44-4

Actual Results:

| drwx------    2 root     root         4096 Sep 13 15:25 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0/i386-linux-thread-multi/auto/RPM2

at 4; script can not find package at 5 and
still exists after 6.

Additional Information:

When adding

| for i in installarchlib vendorlib; do
| 	eval $(perl "-V:$i")
| 	dir=$(eval echo \$$i)
|       echo "%exclude %dir ${dir}"
| 	find "${RPM_BUILD_ROOT}${dir}" -type d -mindepth 1 ! -empty -print |	\
| 		sed "s@^$RPM_BUILD_ROOT@%dir @g"
| done | sort -u >> %{modname}-%{version}-filelist

to the file-finding section in the spec-file, this class of bugs can
be fixed for all perl-XXX packages.
Comment 1 Warren Togami 2005-09-11 07:28:13 EDT
Spec has not been rewritten to modern perl packaging standards, so likely still
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2006-11-22 12:09:59 EST
perl-RPM2 is no longer shipped in any currently maintained Fedora releases. Closing.
Comment 3 Robin Norwood 2006-11-22 12:51:23 EST
Re-opening - there's a request to add this back into extras (bug #184530), but I
want to make sure this bug is fixed first.
Comment 4 Marcela Mašláňová 2008-03-07 07:09:07 EST
Looks like it was fixed in review of this package.
