Description Sergey S. Starikoff 2010-10-26 08:11:47 UTC
ebuild utility fails to finish 'rpm' command after compiling (while packing rpm-package) if the package directory contains no files subdirectory.
If the files subdirectory exists, it packs the archiv correctly.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
For example:
1. ebuild /usr/portage/media-sound/mp3unicode/mp3unicode-1.2.ebuild
Actual Results:  
>>> Completed installing mp3unicode-1.2 into /var/tmp/portage/media-sound/mp3unicode-1.2/image/

strip: i686-pc-linux-gnu-strip --strip-unneeded -R .comment
ecompressdir: bzip2 -9 /usr/share/man
tar: Removing leading `/' from member names
tar: /usr/portage/media-sound/mp3unicode/files: Cannot stat: No such file or directory
tar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors
 * ERROR: media-sound/mp3unicode-1.2 failed:
 *   Failed to create base rpm tarball.
 * Call stack:
 *, line 804:  Called dyn_rpm
 *, line 777:  Called dyn_spec
 *, line 740:  Called die
 * The specific snippet of code:
 *   	tar czf "${sources_dir}/${PF}.tar.gz" \
 *   		"${EBUILD}" "${FILESDIR}" || \
 *   		die "Failed to create base rpm tarball."
 * If you need support, post the output of 'emerge --info =media-sound/mp3unicode-1.2',
 * the complete build log and the output of 'emerge -pqv =media-sound/mp3unicode-1.2'.
 * The complete build log is located at '/var/tmp/portage/media-sound/mp3unicode-1.2/temp/build.log'.
 * The ebuild environment file is located at '/var/tmp/portage/media-sound/mp3unicode-1.2/temp/environment'.
 * S: '/var/tmp/portage/media-sound/mp3unicode-1.2/work/mp3unicode-1.2'

Expected Results:  
Successfully built rpm package.

What version of tar? 1.24? Does downgrading to 1.23-r3 help? Duplicate of bug 342735?
Comment 2 Samuli Suominen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-10-26 14:19:07 UTC

No. Current stable tar (app-arch/tar-1.23-r2, last sync this monday, today sync prompted it status).

Attemp to build rpm for tar package also failed with the following error:

/usr/lib/portage/bin/ line 778: rpmbuild: command not found
 * ERROR: app-arch/tar-1.23-r2 failed:
 *   Failed to integrate rpm spec file

 * The specific snippet of code:
 *   	rpmbuild -bb --clean --rmsource "${PF}.spec" || die "Failed to integrate rpm spec file"
 * If you need support, post the output of 'emerge --info =app-arch/tar-1.23-r2',
 * the complete build log and the output of 'emerge -pqv =app-arch/tar-1.23-r2'.
 * The complete build log is located at '/var/tmp/portage/app-arch/tar-1.23-r2/temp/build.log'.

Comment 5 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2010-10-28 21:43:54 UTC
do you have rpm & rpmbuild installed ?  if not, this isnt a bug in portage.  you need to install rpm if you expect to be able to build rpms.
Comment 6 Sergey S. Starikoff 2010-10-29 09:32:40 UTC
Excuse me, I was a little bit mistaken.
Oryginally the bug was taken on my home PC. Where I've already built rpm's
And after that, before report, I've reproduced it on my workstation.
On my workstation app-arch/rpm really wasn't installed.
After I've installed it, I've the app-arch/tar rpm was packed, but media-sound/mp3unicode failed with the same error:

tar: /usr/portage/media-sound/mp3unicode/files: Cannot stat: No such file or directory
Comment 8 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2010-10-31 18:50:20 UTC
