Description Terje Røsten 2003-04-11 14:06:24 UTC
Distutils in python do not understand that a extra rpm debuginfo package is
generated when doing:
$ python setup.py bdist_rpm
This quick (maybe too quick) hack fix it:

distutils has no way to generate multiple binaries out of the same source, and
that's where the problem comes from.

Comment 2 Mihai Ibanescu 2004-04-05 20:04:53 UTC
This is more of a problem with distutils.
