Description javierwilson 2013-06-17 17:06:54 UTC
Description of problem:
Since varnish-3.0.3-5, varnish requires /usr/lib/rpm/redhat/redhat-hardened-cc1 which belongs to redhat-rpm-config, however, it is not listed as a required package.  This leads to varnish not being able to start unless you manually install redhat-rpm-config (providing the missing file) 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 3.0.3-5

How reproducible: 
Everytime. (as long as you do not have redhat-rpm-config installed)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum remove redhat-rpm-config
2. yum install varnish
3. systemctl restart varnishd.service

Actual results:
Message from C-compiler:
gcc: error: /usr/lib/rpm/redhat/redhat-hardened-cc1: No such file or directory
Running C-compiler failed, exit 1

VCL compilation failed

Expected results: 
Varnish starts with no problem

Comment 1 Fedora End Of Life 2013-07-03 22:46:37 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 17. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '17'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.

Bug Reporter:  Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 17 is end of life. If you 
would still like  to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version  of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 
'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

Comment 2 Fedora End Of Life 2013-08-01 00:53:58 UTC
Fedora 17 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-07-30. Fedora 17 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.

Comment 3 Ingvar Hagelund 2014-12-23 09:28:44 UTC
This was actually fixed in varnish-3.0.4-1, for f18 and up.
