Description Tim Mooney 1999-09-21 14:55:07 UTC
Currently, there's no way to get a list of what files
were installed (full paths preferred, since the person
running rpm may relocate the package in many cases) from
a %pre or %post, and ditto for files removed in a %preun
%postun.  This information would often be extremely useful
to have.

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2002-07-13 20:04:07 UTC
rpm-4.1 permits concurrent access to the rpm
database, so the list of files can be gleaned
by doing, say,
	%post
	FILES="`rpm -ql %{name}-%{version}-%{release}`"
	...
Watch out for multiply installed pacakges however ...
