Description Chris Siebenmann 1999-10-28 10:10:34 UTC
The hdparm source RPM fails to rebuild, and cannot be
built as a normal user. There are two problems:

 First, the spec file doesn't use %defattr(-,root,root)
to set file permissions, but instead relies on being run
as root and using cp and worse, explicit
	install -m <blah> -o 0 -g 0 ...
which will fail for anyone who can't chown things, ie
anyone but root.

 Second, the spec file lists 'hdparm.lsm' as one of the
%doc files. As of the tarball in the source RPM, it's
instead 'hdparm-3.5.lsm'.

Fixed in hdparm-3.6-3.
