Description Mario Blättermann 2014-11-24 19:40:16 UTC
Description of problem:

The -common subpackage owns the directories and almost the whole path containing the files.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

All these path components are already owned by the "filesystem" package. Just drop the creation of all the directories and "Requires: filesystem", that's all.

Moreover, to install the mo files correctly, you need to use the %find_lang macro. Have a look at our packaging guidelines how to use it:

I've pushed a fix to rawhide.  Please test 2.20.90-12 when it is done.  I've verified that it does not brick my x86_64 vm and the directories are no longer owned by glibc.

Comment 2 Mario Blättermann 2014-12-05 19:08:54 UTC
Ok, I haven't tested the package itself, but spec file and file list with "rpm -qpl" are OK. What do you think, is it safe to backport this change to f21?

Comment 3 Siddhesh Poyarekar 2014-12-06 03:56:15 UTC
I don't mind doing it after GA.

Comment 4 Mario Blättermann 2015-01-03 23:15:14 UTC
Any news about applying the fix to the f21 package...?
