Description Charlie Brady 2012-03-20 14:41:10 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #681540 +++

Created attachment 481875 [details]
spec file to demonstrate %defattr/%attr proble

Description of problem:

The permissions defined by %attr will not get set correctly if the %attr comes after a %defattr.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
This worked up to Fedora 12, fails in 13, 14, and rawhide.

How reproducible: 100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1) build the attatched .spec file
2) run rpmls -l on the resulting rpm
Actual results:
drwxrwxr-x  nobody   nobody   /var/cache/rpmtest/nobody
drwxr-xr-x  nobody   nobody   /var/cache/rpmtest/nobody2

Expected results:
drwxrwxr-x  nobody   nobody   /var/cache/rpmtest/nobody
drwxrwxr-x  nobody   nobody   /var/cache/rpmtest/nobody2

Additional info: 
attached is very simple spec file to demonstrate.

Ack, this is a regression originating from fixing bug 515685.

Thanks for the report + reproducer.

This problem apparently exists in RHEL6:

bash-4.1$ rpm -qlvp rpms/RPMS/i686/rpmtest-0.1-1.el6.i686.rpm
drwxrwxr-x    2 nobody  nobody                      0 Mar 20 14:35 /var/cache/rpmtest/nobody
drwxr-xr-x    2 nobody  nobody                      0 Mar 20 14:35 /var/cache/rpmtest/nobody2
bash-4.1$ rpm -q rpm
bash-4.1$ uname -r

Unfortunately Bug #681540 does not contain a reference to where this was "fixed upstream" - neither version number nor changeset.
