BUG: Error when building RPMs, attempt to mv nonexistant file

%makeinstall section of motion.spec (line 33) included with source attempts to mv motion-dist.conf from %{_sysconfdir} directory to %{_sysconfdir}/%{name} directory.

This results in the error:

+ mv /var/tmp/motion-3.1.18-buildroot/etc/motion-dist.conf /var/tmp/motion-3.1.18-buildroot/etc/motion/. mv: cannot stat `/var/tmp/motion-3.1.18-buildroot/etc/motion-dist.conf': No such file or directory

This appears to be unnecessary as motion-dist.conf is already present in %{_sysconfdir}/%{name} directory by this point in the install process.

Commenting out line 33 appears to resolve the problem without ill effect.

Test case


Motion version: 3.1.18
ffmpeg version:  
Shared libraries: curl, xmlrpc, ffmpeg, mysql, postgresql
Server OS: SuSE 9.2

Follow up

The rpmbuild process has been tested only in red hat / fedora and it works as expected :

+ mv '/var/tmp/motion-%{3.1.18}-buildroot/etc/motion-dist.conf' '/var/tmp/motion-%{3.1.18}-buildroot/etc/motion/.'
+ /usr/lib/rpm/brp-compress
+ /usr/lib/rpm/brp-strip

So maybe the best choice is to create a spec file for Suse.

Instead of separate test cases for various distros, how about a simple test case? i.e. Change line 33

from: mv %{buildroot}%{_sysconfdir}/motion-dist.conf %{buildroot}%{_sysconfdir}/%{name}/.

to: if [ -f %{buildroot}%{_sysconfdir}/motion-dist.conf ] ; then mv %{buildroot}%{_sysconfdir}/motion-dist.conf %{buildroot}%{_sysconfdir}/%{name}/. ; fi
