Description Jens Petersen 2002-11-12 14:21:32 UTC
Description of Problem:
rpmbuild doesn't seem to parse commas in ExcludeArch directives right.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. put "ExcludeArch: arch1, arch2" in a spec file.
2. rpmbuild on arch1

Actual Results:
I think it build on arch1 (though not on arch2 as expected).

Expected Results:
It shouldn't build on arch1 nor arch2.

Comment 1 Michael Lee Yohe 2002-11-14 18:00:13 UTC
According to,
ExcludeArch requires the architectures to be delimited by spaces, not commas.

Example -
ExcludeArch: sparc alpha
