Re: Mock problem in EPEL 5?

Hi,

I am seeing a package build fail in EPEL 5 that builds fine in EPEL6
and Fedora. Specifically there seems to be a problem writing to /sbin
in the build root:

Installing Shorewall Version 4.4.22.3
install: cannot create regular file `/sbin/shorewall': Permission denied
ERROR: Failed to install -T -o root -g root -m 0755 shorewall /sbin/shorewall

See http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/getfile?taskID=3291843&name=build.log

Any ideas?

I'm surprised this builds at all in mock: it's trying to give away ownership of the file to root, which is a privileged operation. If you patch it not to try to do "-o root -g root" then it should work OK, and the resulting files will be owned by root anyway.

Paul.
