Package: lsb-rpm
Version: 4.4.1-14.1
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

Packages created by lsb-rpm don't pass the checks that the lsbpkgchk
program (from the lsb-pkgchk3 package, or directly from LSB website,

Additionally, according to some anonymous pretending to be Jeff
Johnson on the linux.org.ru site,

"The LSB format is not used by any version of rpm since rpm-3.0.5 and
LSB packages cannot be produced by any version of rpm currently used in

"unmodified rpm- cannot produce LSB "standard" packages" (and
debian doesn't apply patches that affect the output format)

I don't know whether the comments above come actually from Jeff Johnson
and whether they are true, but the "lsbpkgchk" messages do have the
ultimate authority.

Testcase: try bulding something simple, like Bison.

First, edit the /usr/lib/rpm/rpmrc file so that the "buildarchtranslate"
statements point to i486 (as mandated by LSB) instead of i386.

Second, put bison-2.3.tar.bz2 (from GNU) to /usr/src/rpm/SOURCES/ and
create the following spec file (save as bison.spec):

----- 8< -----
Summary: Generates parsers
Name: bison
Version: 2.3
Release: 1
Group: Base
License: GPL
Distribution: LeafOS
Vendor: LeafOS
Packager: LeafOS
URL: http://www.gnu.org/software/bison/
Source0: http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/bison/bison-%{version}.tar.bz2
BuildRoot: %{_tmppath}/%{name}-root
Requires: lsb = 3.1, lsb-core-ia32 >= 3.0

Bison generates, from a series of rules, a program for analyzing the
of text files; Bison is a replacement for Yacc (Yet Another Compiler

%setup -q

%configure CC=lsbcc3 CXX=lsbc++3
echo '#define YYENABLE_NLS 1' >> config.h

rm -f $RPM_BUILD_ROOT/usr/share/info/dir

install-info --delete %{_infodir}/bison.info.gz %{_infodir}/dir

install-info %{_infodir}/bison.info.gz %{_infodir}/dir


----- 8< -----

Finally, run these commands:

lsb-rpm -bb bison.spec
lsbpkgchk /usr/src/rpm/RPMS/i486/bison-2.3-1.i486.rpm

and see the following errors:

Error: checkRpmIdx() unexpected Index tag=1140 type=4 offset=d00 count=21
Error: checkRpmIdx() unexpected Index tag=1141 type=4 offset=d84 count=21
Error: checkRpmIdx() unexpected Index tag=1142 type=8 offset=e08 count=7

Error: checkRpmIdx() unexpected Index tag=1145 type=4 offset=ff4 count=1
Error: checkRpmIdx() unexpected Index tag=1147 type=8 offset=ff8 count=21

Since the only purpose of lsb-rpm is to produce LSB-compliant packages
and it fails to do this, I am reporting a grave bug.
