pkg-oss: `dist` macro changes on CentOS 7 break nginx-module packages

Reported by: davidjb Owned by: Andrei Belov
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: nginx-package Version: 1.13.x

nginx -V: pkg-oss


With CentOS 7, the {?dist} macro has changed within spec files from .e7 to .e7.centos. This means that any packages built with the current version of pkg-oss on CentOS 7 have their dependency set on nginx with this dist suffix included like so:

    nginx = 1.12.1-1.el7.centos.ngx

This causes a problem because this dependency is not correct as the EL7 releases for nginx are named like so:

    nginx = 1:1.12.1-1.el7.ngx

The result is that if you try and install a built module whilst having the main nginx yum repo configured, the following failure occurs:

 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

The change stems from so to fix the issue (or at least workaround it), I've taken to adding the following %define into the pkg-oss's file:

%if 0%{?rhel} == 7
# CentOS 7 specifies dist as ".el7.centos" (
# but releases for nginx are just ".el7" so force this.
%define dist .el7

Could this change be applied to the file? Thanks.

Thanks for reporting this. We've been using an override for dist in .rpmmacros file on our build hosts for a while. Since there's also explicit (re)definition in spec files as well.
