Description Doncho N. Gunchev 2003-04-15 20:11:15 UTC
Description of problem: 
  The presence of "%install" ("% install" does not break things) in %changelog in rpm .spec file 
leads to the following error: "error: Package already exists: %package debuginfo" 
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 
  RPM version 4.2 
How reproducible: 
  download http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/poptop/pptpd-1.1.4-b3.tar.gz?download, fix the 
%{rel} to b3, not 1b3 or the source of the .tar.gz file and try to rebuild for --target 
  While I'm here, why in '/usr/lib/rpm/rpmrc' I see "optflags: i386 -O2 -g -march=i386 
-mcpu=i686"? How am I expected to rebuild packages for i386 CPU? 
Steps to Reproduce: 
1. rpmbuild -vvv -ba --with buildipalloc --target i386-redhat-linux pptpd.spec 
Actual results: 
  error: Package already exists: %package debuginfo 
Expected results: 
  normal package rebuild

Created attachment 91146 [details]
"working" .spec file.

This is my "working" .spec file, scroll down to " - fixed % install section so
that it uses buildroot" and remove the space between "%" and "install" to
represent the bug

Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 2003-04-15 20:22:54 UTC
Yup. Escape the '%, as in use '%%install', not '%install'.
