Actually, at last building binary rpm complaints,
"File not found: /var/tmp/xscreensaver-root/usr/bin/perl".

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make sure the perl package is installed.
2. Rebuild binary rpm from xscreensaver source

Actual Results:  At last it complains about missing perl file.

Additional info:

Removing "perl" entry from base,extras,gl-extras.files works for me.

Installation log file created during building binary

Installation log file named "base.files" created during building binary.

The missing ( unneeded ) file name /usr/bin/perl appears for some reason.
The same entry appears also in extras.files .

Comment 3 Ray Strode [halfline] 2005-07-14 14:31:24 UTC
Ah, so the function that generates the file lists is pulling in something from
the build output that it shouldn't be.

Patch to send perl complaints to stderr

Sorry for replying you late.

Yes. I found that this is due to the behavior that 
(hacks,drivers)/Makefile generate the lists of the installed
Patching the attached patch will solve the problem. Perl
complaints is sent to stderr and is not recoded into 

Note: This problem is fixed in the xscreensaver
version 4.22 .

Comment 5 Ray Strode [halfline] 2005-07-22 14:39:37 UTC
Ah okay,

I'll just upgrade the xscreensaver in rawhide then.

Comment 6 Mamoru TASAKA 2005-08-06 07:12:52 UTC
Rebuilding xscreensaver 4.22-5 succeeded.
Thanks !!
