Re: Files with spaces and brackets

Howdy folks!

So I have a file named, without quotes,  "/tmp/test/Funky [filename].txt"

The problem here is two fold. Spaces and '['. Spaces are solved by
double-quoting the filename in the %files section, and normally the '[' can
be escaped by doing [\[]. However, when combined, this doesn't work:

%files
%defattr(-,root,root,-)
"/tmp/test/Funky [\[]filename].txt"

The error is:    File not found by glob: .../BUILD/tmp/test/Funky
[\[]filename].txt

How do I convince rpmbuild to package this file?

Sorry I've forgotten to answer this...

At least one simple solution (or perhaps more of a workaround for the quirky quotation) is using wildcards for the "difficult parts", eg:

%files
/tmp/test/Funky*.txt
