Description Michal Jaegermann 2004-04-09 01:17:14 EDT
Description of problem:

Running "rpm -Fvh policy*" resulted in the following output
from "rpm -qa --last 'policy*'":

policy-sources-1.10.1-4               Thu 08 Apr 2004 10:19:52 PM MDT
policy-1.10.1-4                       Thu 08 Apr 2004 04:23:58 PM MDT
policy-sources-1.9.2-12               Tue 06 Apr 2004 08:08:13 PM MDT
policycoreutils-1.9.2-1               Tue 06 Apr 2004 08:08:08 PM MDT

This after "rpm -Uvh --force policy-sources-1.10.1-4" which also
failed to rectify the situation.

I do not know if this releated to bug 120476 or not.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2004-04-12 11:36:55 EDT
rpm -e policy-sources-1.10.1-4

Not sure how you got this.

Comment 2 Leonard den Ottolander 2004-05-11 04:43:49 EDT
This looks like an rpm error. Changing component.
Comment 3 Michal Jaegermann 2004-05-11 11:49:36 EDT
I do not think that this is an rpm error.  I believe now that
this is a side effect of bugs in package scripts as described
in bug 120476 (fixed in the meantime).  Unless you mean that
rpm aborting on a script problem an already partially performed
action is an error.
Comment 4 Leonard den Ottolander 2004-05-11 18:17:39 EDT
Ok. Reassiging to Dan and policy again.
Comment 5 Daniel Walsh 2004-05-21 08:29:55 EDT
Yes I believe RPM aborted before deleting the previous version.  This
might have been a side effect of a bad policy but It is not currently
repeatable and there have been numerous fixes since then.

So I am marking it closed in Rawhide.
