rpm -e slocate doesn''t remove slocate fully
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:13:54 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
This should be fixed in the slocate package currently in rawhide.
