Summary: FC4 buildsys fails - FC4 mock succeeds - wine-docs package


------- Additional Comments From williams at redhat.com  2006-04-24 14:12 EST -------
I duplicated the failure last week on a plague system running FC5. 


I can cut the mock invocation line out of the debug output and run it directly
with no failure, but the plague build dies with the mysterious elinks message
"ELinks: Unknown file type". Looking at the elinks source
(src/encoding/encoding.c), the only place this message can be generated is if
elinks was told to operate on a non-regular file and the file isn't stdin as a
pipe and an option to allow special files isn't set:

} else if (!S_ISREG(stt.st_mode) && !is_stdin_pipe(&stt, filename)
                   && !get_opt_bool("protocol.file.allow_special_files")) {
                state = S_FILE_TYPE;

I'd like to figure out on what file elinks is operating on and why that file is
different in a buildsystem chroot, but I'm not sure how best to do that. I also
haven't tracked down whether somehow the option is different in a mock and a
plague chroot.

Suggestions welcome.
