glibc src.rpm breaks when trying to rebuild
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:54 EDT
The glibc src rpm doesn't seem to want to rebuild properly under RH 6.2
beta. (I've also tried glibc-2.1.3-14.src.rpm from Rawhide, with the same
results.) I'm installing the srpm and doing a rpm -bb, with no success.
It all seems to compile fine, and then dies during the install stage, with:
for file in libc.info*; do \
/usr/bin/install -c -m 644 $file
/usr/bin/install: libc.info*: No such file or directory
make: *** [/var/tmp/glibc-2.1.3-root/usr/info/libc.info] Error 1
make: Leaving directory `/usr/src/redhat/BUILD/glibc-2.1.3/manual'
make: *** [manual/subdir_install] Error 2
make: Leaving directory `/usr/src/redhat/BUILD/glibc-2.1.3'
make: *** [install] Error 2
make: Leaving directory
Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.85277 (%install)
I've not tried this under 6.1....
I get this same problem trying to build the glibc-2.1.2-11.src.rpm from RH 6.1.
Is there some special requirement for building this RPM which I'm missing?
Do you have texinfo installed?
Check carefully the output of the /.configure step
Ah, good call. No, I didn't have texinfo installed. Rebuilding now with it
PS -- might this be a good "BuildRequires" option for the spec file?
