Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 78862
rpmbuild segfaults on (erroneous) --rebuild <specfile>
Last modified: 2008-08-01 12:22:53 EDT
Description of Problem:
If rpmbuild --rebuild is incorrectly called on a specfile, it segfaults.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpmbuild --rebuild <specfile>
An error message notifying the user that the file is not an SRPMS should be printed.
This behavior does not affect the Red Hat Linux 8 release of RPM (rpm-4.1-1.06):
$ rpmbuild --rebuild xscreensaver.spec
error: xscreensaver.spec cannot be installed
Yup. Fixed in rpm-4.2-0.17.
Resolution == Rawhide?
Yup, our paths crossed while adding comments.
