Trying to install dmd-2.061-0.fedora.x86_64.rpm on Fedora 18 fails with the
following error message:

Transaction Check Error:
  file / from install of dmd-2.061-0.x86_64 conflicts with file from package
filesystem-3.1-2.fc18.x86_64
  file /usr/bin from install of dmd-2.061-0.x86_64 conflicts with file from
package filesystem-3.1-2.fc18.x86_64
  file /usr/lib from install of dmd-2.061-0.x86_64 conflicts with file from
package filesystem-3.1-2.fc18.x86_64
  file /usr/lib64 from install of dmd-2.061-0.x86_64 conflicts with file from
package filesystem-3.1-2.fc18.x86_64

I believe this is caused by yum/rpm being more fussy about such things and
should be fixable by a small change to the spec file used to build the rpm.
Basically, don't list directories in %files (only files) unless the directory
is exclusive to your package and will be deliberately empty.

I tried using yum's --tolerant switch but the installation still failed.

I'm willing to have a go at fixing this issue.  How do I get a copy of the
sources including the RPM spec file?

 I'm willing to have a go at fixing this issue.  How do I get a copy of the
 sources including the RPM spec file?

DMD sources are here http://dlang.org/download.html But I don't know where is RPM data (I guess nowhere, somebody just uploads ready rpms to dlang.org) and who is preparing release. Perhaps you can found answer at http://forum.dlang.org/ -- Configure issuemail: http://d.puremagic.com/issues/userprefs.cgi?tab=email ------- You are receiving this mail because: -------

I think this script creates the RPM spec file
https://github.com/D-Programming-Language/installer/blob/master/linux/dmd_rpm.sh

That is indeed the script that builds the rpm.

A first inspection indicates that removal of line 283:

find $TEMPDIR/$DMDDIR/ -type d | sed 's:'$TEMPDIR'/'$DMDDIR':%dir ":' | sed
's:$:":' >> dmd.spec

would fix the problem.

In the meantime, I'm experimenting with "rpmrebuild -e dmd" (and removing the
effect of the above line) on a system where I already had dmd installed before
I upgraded to Fedora 18 (as judging from that scripts path it's not in the zip
tarball).

Unfortunately package rebuilt using rpmrebuild fails to install due to a digest
mismatch which I think is a rpmrebuild error.

However, I've now discovered a dmd.spec file at github and notice that the file
https://github.com/D-Programming-Language/installer/blob/master/linux/dmd_rpm.sh
does not appear to exist in the master branch so modifying it would be
fruitless.

I will checkout the code from github and see if I can figure out how to build
an rpm from that and then try to fix the problem.

Well, that's funny.  After logging in to github (rather than being anonymous) I
get to see a different set of files (including dmd_rpm.sh albeit in a different
directory than that quoted and dmd.spec is no longer there.

Otherwise the plan stays the same.

Created an attachment (id=1191)
A patch to add "rpmpkg" sub directory to "installer" repositry at github.

This is a patch to add a new directory (rpmpkg) to the
D-Programming-Language/installer repository at github.  It provides a mechanism
for creating binary rpm packages from the binary package archives
(*.pkg.tar.xz) at www.digitalmars.com on any system with rpmbuild and friends
installed.

To create i386 and x86_64 binary rpms for the 2.061 release just type:

make

inside the new directory.

Provided there are no radical changes to the base install directories (e.g.
/usr/bin, /usr/lib and so on) and /etc/dmd.conf and /etc/bash_completion.d/dmd
remain the only configuration files this process should work for other
versions/releases by passing the version/release to make e.g.:

make VERSION=2.062 RELEASE=1

would build rpms for version 2.062 release 1 (provided, of course, that the
requisite binary package archives are in place at www.digitalmars.com).

the reason for the just uploaded patch (instead of results for modifying
dmd_rpm.sh) is that this is the solution I arrived at after being unable to
test changes to dmd_rpm.sh due to it only working on debian and my attempts to
install on a virtual machine failing (the debian install dvd will not boot).

Fix errors discovered building rpms for 2.062 version

I've just tried to install the official 2.062 (x86_64) rpm on my Fedora 18 box
and it fails with the same messages as in the original bug report.

However, after some bugfixes, the Makefile and dmd.spec files in my first patch
build an rpm that installs OK.  A patch containing the bugfixes has been
uploaded.

Thank you. May I ask that you do this as a "pull request" on the github
repository?

I'll do that as soon as I figure out how :-)

I'll merge the two patches into one.

In the meantime, it looks like I may be getting a successful debian
installation using a different (network) boot iso so I'll (hopefully) be able
to check the problem with dmd_rpm.sh.

BTW it looks like whoever is writing the rpm spec files is using outdated
documentation as the files no longer have to be as complex as those being
defined.

It is worth figuring out how. If not just for D, a lot of projects are on
github now.

Yes, I know.  I'm not a git user as I prefer Mercurial which is similar but
with a much better designed user interface.  I have books and other
documentation for git, however, so I should be able to figure it out.

I'm still having trouble getting Debian going.  My latest attempt refused to
boot after installation because of a "pointer" error (whatever that is) so I'm
trying again.  (So far I'm very unimpressed by Debian.)

BTW the rpmsrc directory in installer hasn't been touched for 2 years.  Would
it be a waste of my time to look at resurrecting it?

So far my attempts to do "pull request" (using the recipe at git hub) fail at
the "push to repo" stage with the message:

error: The requested URL returned error: 403 Forbidden while accessing
https://github.com/D-Programming-Language/installer/info/refs?service=git-receive-pack
fatal: HTTP request failed

Any tips?

It's OK.  I've found a more detailed recipe which tells me I need my own fork
of "installer" on github to do a "pull request" so I'll do that.

Bug fixed on the rpm building script.

Here you can download fixed rpm packages:

http://d-packages.googlecode.com/files/dmd-2.062-1.fedora.i386.rpm
http://d-packages.googlecode.com/files/dmd-2.062-1.fedora.x86_64.rpm


I didn't know about this bug, so please, next time you can inform the packager
too for a faster solution. This information is present on every rpm package,
and is for situations like this:

$ rpm -qpi dmd-X.XXX-X.fedora.x86_64.rpm
