Description Michal Jaegermann 2004-05-03 20:50:28 UTC
Description of problem:

'gnome-applets' installation on x86_64 results in the following

I/O warning : failed to load external entity
Failed to open `/etc/gconf/schemas/battstat.schemas': No such file or

and indeed there is no such file or directory.

What about changing a code on a %post script to something like that:

for S in $SCHEMAS; do
  [ -r $S ] || continue
  gconftool-2 --makefile-install-rule $S > /dev/null

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Just pushed a testing update which should fix this:


Appreciate if someone could try it out and confirm.

The test update works; but I wonder if instead of a static list
of schemas in a %post section of gnome-applet.spec, which always
poses a risc of getting out of sync, there is a way to create
that list automatically.  From a content of
$RPM_BUILD_ROOT%{_sysconfdir}/gconf/schemas/ maybe?

I never tried if a "late %define" in a spec file would be feasible
but that would look like one possibility of passing that information
to a %post section.

Comment 4 Mark McLoughlin 2004-07-23 09:00:57 UTC
I guess we explicitly list the schema files we're installing because
we want to know when new schema files have been added in a new
upstream version.

This is an unusual case - schemas not being installed on certain

Thanks for testing the update :-)
