Description Sebastien BLAISOT 2005-05-27 14:46:31 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050513 Fedora/1.0.4-1.3.1 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
When trying to recompile imap server rpm from redhat-provided src.rpm, the rpmbuild fails in the prep section because of RCS lock files included in source.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. download and install imap-2002d-11.src.rpm (up2date --get-source imap ; rpm -ivh /var/spool/up2date/imap-2002d-11.src.rpm)
2. cd to /usr/src/redhat
3. try to rebuild imap rpm (rpmbuild -ba SPECS/imap.spec)

Actual Results:  %prep section failed when patching sources :

+ patch -p0 -b --suffix .mbox-disable-patch -s
patch: **** File ./Makefile seems to be locked by somebody else under RCS
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.47208 (%prep)

RPM build errors:
    Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.47208 (%prep)

Expected Results:  imap rpm built, no error

Additional info:

this error comes from the files 


that are present in the imap-2002.tar.Z source file

Workaround found :
