Subject Re: [ApacheDS] RPM build failure on Fedora 8
Date Wed, 16 Apr 2008 23:38:41 GMT
This is a real problem caused by a change to rpmbuild *after* Fedora 8 was
released.  This update came sometime in October as best I can tell and it
was really frustrating trying to figure it out.

Here is a related issue (I have seen a few others as well), but from what I
can tell the Fedora guys want it to stay this way.

I am sure some rpm ninja could figure out a work around, but I haven't quote
been able to figure out the solution either.  I have just been building on
CentOS in the mean time.

If I run across a workaround I will try it out.
