#593 new coreutils seems to cause rebuild problems for many rawhide packages

Created 8 years ago by alexlan

The problem may be that something in the new coreutils causes problems with some commands such as touch which causes many rawhide build failures, here's just one:

A temporary remedy may be to untag the recent coreutils-6.12-1.fc10

http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=51330

from the minimal "build" repo ?

I disabled xenbuilder2 which was hitting this issue, untagged the new coreutils, and once the repodata had recreated I re-enabled xenbuilder2. This should work around the problem for now.
