This behavior does not affect the Red Hat Linux 8 release of RPM (rpm-4.1-1.06):

$ rpmbuild --rebuild xscreensaver.spec 
Installing xscreensaver.spec
error: xscreensaver.spec cannot be installed

Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 2002-12-02 14:56:14 UTC
Yup. Fixed in rpm-4.2-0.17.

Comment 3 Michael Lee Yohe 2002-12-02 14:59:35 UTC
Resolution == Rawhide?

Comment 4 Jeff Johnson 2002-12-02 15:02:52 UTC
