Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 120477
Something funny when installing policy*1.10.1-4
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:40 EST
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):
rpm -e policy-sources-1.10.1-4
Not sure how you got this.
This looks like an rpm error. Changing component.
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.
Ok. Reassiging to Dan and policy again.
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.
