Description benedict 1999-05-07 09:34:40 UTC
The following spec file snippet should echo twice when built
with buildos irix6.5 - in 3.0 it echos only once.


%define mymacro irix6.5

%ifos %{mymacro}
echo "Expansion of ifos %{mymacro} is OK"

%ifos iris6.5
echo "Expansion of ifos %{mymacro} is OK"

The output is

Executing: %prep
+ umask 022
+ cd /tmp/benedict/BUILD-test-3.0
+ echo Expansion of ifos irix6.5 is OK
Expansion of ifos irix6.5 is OK
+ exit 0

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 1999-05-14 18:35:59 UTC
Macros are correctly expanded before processing %ifX statements.

Your example has a typo (iris6.5 vs. irix6.5), I can't tell which is
wrong without examining uname(2) strings on an SGI platform.

Please reopen this bug if there is still a problem.

Comment 2 benedict 1999-05-17 09:53:59 UTC
OK. Sorry about the typo.

Comment 3 benedict 1999-05-17 13:30:59 UTC
See Bug # 2873
    The original problem for me was that I did not get any warning
when I defined %irix6.x in a macro file - so I thought it was not
expanded when I used a conditional such as
    %ifos %{irix6.x}
