I'm brand-new to RPM and am researching a problem for someone fairly new
We build software on several platforms (including 2 versions of Linux
and 2 versions of Solaris), and we use RPM 4.3.3 (from what I can tell).
In the Solaris 8 build, we're getting an error when the RPM is put
together. The compress/strip commands complain that 8 binary files are
in an "unrecognizable format." It then puts the binary plus an empty
garbage file into the RPM.
Here's two snippets from the log, the first showing the tar of the
binary, and the next showing the error where the empty garbage file is
+ tar xf -
+ tar chf - BinaryName
+ /usr/lib/rpm/redhat/brp-strip /usr/bin/strip
/usr/bin/strip: Unable to recognise the format of the input file
I'll have to do a more exhaustive search of the system, but so far this
happens to just 8 binary files for this particular build. These files
have nonsense names, such as stXyzzy and are placed in the same
destination directory as the binary.
Has anyone seen this type of problem before? Can you point me to what I
else I need to research, and whether there are rpm options that might
prevent this from happening?
