man-db rpm script failed when installed with glibc-minimal-langpack
Last modified: 2016-03-26 14:07:13 EDT
Description of problem:
When install man-db with glibc-minimal-langpack, the rpm script (I guess it is %transfiletriggerin script) after the installation fail.
The installation command I use is below.
dnf --disablerepo=* --enablerepo=rawhide \
--installroot=/nfsroot/hoge -y install man-db glibc-minimal-langpack
The above command outputs the following error message (The full output is attached).
Installing : man-db-2.7.5-2.fc24.x86_64 50/50
/usr/sbin/convert-to-edition: line 163: grub2-mkconfig: command not found
This system has been converted to non-edition
/usr/bin/mandb: can't set the locale; make sure $LC_* and $LANG are correct
Verifying : man-db-2.7.5-2.fc24.x86_64 1/50
Note that the first error message is comes from fedora-release package's bug.
If I install man-db with glibc-all-langpacks, the above error message is not shown.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install packages by using the above command.
Install finishes without error message.
Installation process shows the above error message.

install log of man-db with glibc-minimal-langpack
the message is actually just warning, not error. It doesn't affect anything and the %transfiletriggerin scriptlet finishes successfully.
It is caused by the fact that LANG environment variable is set to a locale other than C or POSIX, while only these two locales are present with glibc-minimal-langpack installed.
The warning can be suppressed either by explicitly setting LANG environment variable to C or POSIX, or by setting MAN_NO_LOCALE_WARNING variable.
Thanks. I confirm that the message is suppressed by setting LANG=C or MAN_NO_LOCALE_WARNING=1.
I hope that the fix is also applied to F24.

It is not, because the bug was reported against rawhide.
I'm reopening this for F24.
