Re: About rpm --querytags option

This brings to mind a problem I had to deal with not too long ago.

How does one find the spec file a package is built from?

Is there a more reliable / faster way than something like this?

rpm -qlp package.src.rpm | egrep '\.spec$'

   I read
http://www.rpm.org/max-rpm/ch-queryformat-tags.html  but
 didn't find answer to my question :

   when I type:  rpm -qp --qf "%{source}\n"

   I can see : (none)

The query is bad. %{source} is an array and holds the values of the
src.rpm spec file's primary SourceX tags. Use query "[%{source} ]"
instead to retrieve all values.

   and when I type : rpm -qp --qf "%{sourcerpm}\n"

   I can see the name of the source which has been used to produce
 this binary rpm

   so when I see "(none)", is it sufficient to say that the rpm file
 is a binary rpm ?

I don't understand why you want to mix the two values. A binary rpm
that was built from a source rpm returns a value in %{sourcerpm}. A
source rpm returns "(none)" in %{sourcerpm} because it is built from a
spec file, not from a src.rpm.
