Description Enrico Scholz 2002-09-13 13:53:45 UTC
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/vendor_perl/5.8.0/i386-linux-thread-multi/auto/Term/ReadKey /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.0/i386-linux-thread-multi/auto/Term/ReadKey/ReadKey.bs
| file /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.0/i386-linux-thread-multi/auto/Term/ReadKey is not owned by any package
| perl-TermReadKey-2.20-2

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


How Reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. umask 077
2. make sure that perl-TermReadKey is uninstalled completely
   (rm -rf /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.0/i386-linux-thread-multi/auto/Term/ReadKey)
3. rpm -U perl-TermReadKey-2.20-2.*
4. ls -l /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.0/i386-linux-thread-multi/auto/Term/ReadKey
5. start perl script using this module
6. rpm -e perl-TermReadKey-2.20-2

Actual Results:

| drwx------    2 root     root         4096 Sep 13 15:40 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.0/i386-linux-thread-multi/auto/Term/ReadKey

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 11:26:38 UTC
Spec has since been rewritten so assuming fixed.  If this is not fixed in
rawhide then please open a new bug.
