Description Ken Barber 2000-05-18 20:59:44 EDT
After installing slocate-2.1-2, when you attempt to run:

rpm -e slocate

It returns the following error:

"execution of script failed"

Then fails to remove the package leaving behind all the files. It does
however manage to remove the group&user "slocate" from the passwd & group
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2000-05-31 18:43:06 EDT
This should be fixed in the slocate package currently in rawhide.
