Description osman 1999-09-28 14:28:16 UTC
When you use BuildRoot the directory isn't created and the process stop with an error.
It breaks spec files that worked perfectly in previous versions.
Version in question is rpm-3.0.3-0.32.i386.rpm

Comment 1 osman 1999-09-28 15:21:59 UTC
Seems like bug#4097 is related qua error message.
Only on this system "/var/tmp" is not a symbolic link but on a
different filesystem.

Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 1999-09-28 15:53:59 UTC
I do not know why you think #4097 is related to your problem.

What directory is not created? $RPM_BUILD_ROOT? It has *always* been
the responsibility of the packager to create that directory, usually
with some variant of

	...
	%install
	rm -rf $RPM_BUILD_ROOT
	mkdir -p $RPM_BUILD_ROOT/usr/whatever
	...

	%clean
	rm -rf $RPM_BUILD_ROOT
