Description Eero Volotinen 2018-01-03 07:35:23 UTC

Tried to produce rpm packages on latest centos 7 using latest version of samba,
but looks like packaging scrips for rhel/centos are broken? 


[root@localhost RHEL]# sh ./makerpms.git.sh 
Supported RPM version [4.11.3]
~/samba-4.6.12/source3 ~/samba-4.6.12/packaging/RHEL
./makerpms.git.sh: line 57: ./script/mkversion.sh: No such file or directory
Error creating version.h

sh ./makerpms.sh.tmpl

[root@localhost RHEL-CTDB]# ./makerpms.sh

./makespec.sh: line 17: ./script/mkversion.sh: No such file or directory

Looks like at least script/mkversion.sh file is missing?

I might be wrong, but it looks like not being supported any longer.
The whole RHEL dir has been removed in master. The version you are trying to use is based on the old autoconf build system and needs to be adapted to the waf build system. I guess that nobody wanted to spend effort in the conversion and therefore, it has been removed.

Closing out bug report as won't fix.
