File man1/mc.1.gz conflicts between attempted installs of mc and man-pages-pl
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:54 EST
Description of problem:
mc and man-pages-pl contains man1/mc.1.gz man page and durring
installation of this packages I get errors. mc contain newer version
of man page, so mc.1 should be removed from man-pages-pl.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to install man-pages-pl-0.23-2.noarch.rpm and mc-4.6.1-0.9.i386.rpm
2. You'll get error from rpm:
file /usr/share/man/pl/man1/mc.1.gz conflicts between attempted
installs of mc-4.6.1-0.9 and man-pages-pl-0.23-2
Can't install mc-4.6.1-0.9 and man-pages-pl-0.23-2
Installation goes fine.
Mc also contains other (hu, ru, es, it, sr and en) man pages that
could cause confilicts with man-pages rpms, older man pages should be
Adrian, shouldn't we remove mc man pages from man-pages-* packages
completely and let them be installed by mc?
Comment 1: Yes, in general we want packages to own their own
man-pages-- even foreign language ones.
hu, ru, es, it, sr and en will be fixed in rawhide as well
comment 3: -hu, -sr not a (yet) rhat pkg; latest -ru, -en, -it is ok;
