Description Ville Skyttä 2011-05-15 10:03:59 UTC
Created attachment 498987 [details]
Build with $RPM_OPT_FLAGS

grub2 1.99-0.1 is not built with $RPM_OPT_FLAGS due to a sed error,

++ sed -e s/-fstack-protector//g -e s/--param=ssp-buffer-size=4//g -e s/-mregparm=3/-mregparm=4//g -e s/-fasynchronous-unwind-tables//g
sed: -e expression #3, char 27: unknown option to `s'

There's one slash too many in "s/-mregparm=3/-mregparm=4//g".  Fix attached, and CFLAGS setting moved to before %configure so any errors in it will break the build instead of failing semi-silently.  However applying this patch will cause the build to fail at least for some reasons (maybe there's still something in optflags that needs to be filtered out).  1.98-3 did not have this problem, and it was built with full $RPM_OPT_FLAGS.

Two other unrelated issues that should be fixed:

%changelog entries are missing for > 1.98-4.

The release tag is not compliant to packaging guidelines, it should be
0.X.rc1%{?dist} instead of just 0.x%{?dist}.

It is not fixed, the sed error is still there (also in 1.99-4.16) and $RPM_OPT_FLAGS are not being used:

++ sed -e s/-fstack-protector//g -e s/--param=ssp-buffer-size=4//g -e s/-mregparm=3/-mregparm=4//g -e s/-fexceptions//g -e s/-fasynchronous-unwind-tables//g
sed: -e expression #3, char 27: unknown option to `s'
