Problem with %attr/%defattr
I had built some RPMs for our product on RHEL4 ( rpm ver= rpm-4.3.3-26 ). Now I'm migrating these rpms to RHEL6 ( rpm ver = rpm-4.8.0-16 ).
One of the rpms has files owned by different users.
Eg. In qmail queue, "queue/remote" folder is owned by "qmails" user while "queue/todo" folder is owned by "qmailq" user.
The qmail makefile creates the files with appropriate permissions and ownerships. There is no code to set the permissions/ownership in spec file.
In RHEL4, rpm was automatically taking the file permissions set on the files during the build/compile phase. But in RHEL6, it is changing the ownership to root.root.
My files section is :
After searching the net, I tried using %defattr(-,-,-,-) macro at global level and the %attr(-,-,-) macro per entry in the %files section. But to no avail.
Can anybody point me in the right direction ?
Thanks for all the help in advance.
