Description Zdenek Kabelac 2008-01-10 12:22:52 UTC
Description of problem:
I cannot simply remove older setouubleshot package from my rawhide.
I'd had actually 3 different package version of setroubleshot package.

#rpm -qa | grep setroubleshoot

And I cannot easily remove older version:

# rpm -e setroubleshoot-1.10.7-1.fc8.noarch
error: %trigger(setroubleshoot-2.0.0-3.fc9.noarch) scriptlet failed, exit status 1
error: %trigger(setroubleshoot-2.0.1-1.fc9.noarch) scriptlet failed, exit status 1

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
yum update on the fedora rawhide

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:

Expected results:
hmm - just one version of this package in system ?

Comment 1 John Dennis 2008-01-10 14:05:14 UTC
Thank you for reporting this. Could you please do this for me:

ls -lZ /var/lib/setroubleshoot/

and add the output to this bugzilla, thanks.

Comment 2 John Dennis 2008-01-10 14:13:32 UTC
Also, after getting the directory contents please try to remove the old rpm's,
but add this argument --notriggerpostun that should allow the removal to work.
Did that fix the problem?

Comment 3 Zdenek Kabelac 2008-01-11 10:38:07 UTC
Well - of course I've removed offending packages after I've made the bugreport
with --noscript parameter - so I cannot really show the list ls -lZ from this
time - but I've made just an update and setroubleshoot-2.0.1-1.fc9.noarch was
installed again while the setroubleshoot-2.0.0-3.fc9.noarch was left in my system.

- so the current situation on my 64bit rawhide is:

# rpm -qa | grep setroubl
227816 setroubleshoot-2.0.0-3.fc9.noarch
1655432 setroubleshoot-server-2.0.1-1.fc9.noarch
231847 setroubleshoot-2.0.1-1.fc9.noarch
2423383 setroubleshoot-plugins-2.0.0-1.fc9.noarch

# rpm -ql setroubleshoot-2.0.0-3.fc9.noarch

# rpm -ql  setroubleshoot-2.0.1-1.fc9.noarch

# ls -lZ /var/lib/setroubleshoot/
-rw-r--r--  root root system_u:object_r:setroubleshoot_var_lib_t:s0

Comment 5 John Dennis 2008-01-11 18:05:43 UTC
I haven't been able to reproduce this, see attachment. So I'm a bit perplexed.
I'm also perplexed because as far as I can tell the command run by the trigger
should always return 0, which seems to be culprit.

However, the use of a rpm trigger was probably a bad idea in the first place,
triggers are evil. So I've updated the latest rawhide package (2.0.2-1) to:

* bulletproof the exit status of the init script

* have the run time code check the database version, instead of the rpm install

* remove the trigger.

Hopefully this will be more robust.

I know others have installed from rawhide but no one else has reported this
problem yet. I'm not sure if this is a general problem or is unique to your
system. So I'm going to leave this bugzilla open for a while so others can find
it if they see the same issue. But I think the changes listed above should
address the issue.
