Description Jack Neely 2003-03-05 15:14:34 UTC
Description of problem:
RPM chokes if I have a changelog entry in a spec file that contains a "%install"

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

* Sat Feb 17 2001 Name <>
- update to new revision in CVS
- use Makefile instead of crafting our own %install
- add %post to run migrate-rcconf

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2003-03-05 15:19:56 UTC
Yup, macros are expanded everywhere, and redhat-rpm-config
has overloaded the %install section marker with a macro.

Escape as '%%install' to prevent expansion.
