Description Joachim Metz 2002-12-08 14:32:48 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20021003

Description of problem:
the file /usr/lib/python2.2/distutils/command/bdist_rpm.py still uses the 'rpm'
command (-ba, -bb, etc) to build RPMS. This should be rpmbuild in RedHat 8.0 (to
my knowledge).

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to build numpy (http://sourceforge.net/projects/numpy). After unpacking:
python setup.py bdist_rpm --release="i386".

Actual Results:  1. It will fail attempting to run "rpm -ba ..."

Expected Results:  It should have run "rpmbuild -ba ..."

Additional info:

Changing 'rpm' to 'rpmbuild' in
/usr/lib/python2.2/distutils/command/bdist_rpm.py at line 284 solves the problem.
