Description Need Real Name 2003-02-26 17:39:43 UTC
Description of problem:
When processing %files, get: "getOutputFrom(): Broken pipe"

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rpm version 4.1

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. %files list w more than 46 file names; size of files irrelevant
2. rpmbuild -bb -vv arpa-3.1-4.spec

Actual results:
Checking for unpackaged files(): /usr/lib/rpm/check_files %{buildroot}
getOutputFrom(): Broken pipe

Expected results:
Checking for unpackaged files(): /usr/lib/rpm/check_files %{buildroot}
D: fini   100644     1 (    0,   0)  234  asdlkfh  etc
GZDIO: 34 writes,    4615548 total bytes in 0.088 secs
D: Signature: size(180)+pad(4)
Wrote:  /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/arpa-3.1-4.i386.rpm

Additional info:
two *.spec files work fine w. rpm 4.0.4; same problem w. both
BuildRoot undefined (check-files doesn't do anything)
no %prep, %build, %install, or %clean
no files in %files have any file-related directives
file list works fine as input to cpio
seems to be related to number of files, not any particular file, contents or size
"default" RedHat 8.0 install

Do you have a BuildRoot: directive?

If not, you should ;-)

Otherwise, disable check_files by adding to spec file
    %define __check_files %{nil}

I have the same problem when building the Regina-REXX-3.2-1.src.rpm package
with rpmbuild -bb Regina-3.2.spec command but if I reboot the system the build
often works the first time but fail if I try to build it more than once. 
This is on the taroon-beta2 for s390
