My procedure for dealing with checkflist errors is this...
. When a "./build.sh -u release" fails because of "files in DESTDIR but
not in flist," I simply go in to DESTDIR and remove these files then do
my build again.
. When the problem is that "files are in flist but not in DESTDIR," I
usually wait a few hours and update the sources.
This seems to work well because if there are "extra" files in DESTDIR, I
imagine they have been removed from the distribution and it is safe to
do so manually.
If the files haven't arrived yet, but flist thinks they should be there,
it's a bad idea to trust that my distribution would be complete.
Is there anything wrong with this logic?
Is there a way to speed up a second run of "./build.sh -u release"
where the only reason the first run failed was because of flist problems?
Any help would be great. Thank you,
