Description balaton 1999-01-09 17:54:48 UTC
When building an rpm package from a tar.gz file with a
"Logo:" line in the spec file rpm doesn't find the specified
logo file in the tar.gz file even though it's there, thus
rpm packages cannot be built with rpm -tb file.tar.gz.

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 1999-01-10 16:11:59 UTC
You will need to rebuild using "rpm -bb specfile" and putting
foo.logo in the SOURCES directory (usually /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES).
Rpm has no way of identifying that foo.logo in the tar ball has any
relation to foo.logo mentioned as "Logo: foo.logo".
