Description Olivier Baudron 2000-07-24 08:30:23 UTC
I tried to upgrade from 4.73-6 to 4.73-8, but the following command
~# rpm -Uvh netscape-common-4.73-8.i386.rpm
gives me the error message:

netscape-common             ###########unpacking of archive failed on file
/usr/lib/netscape/de_DE: cpio: unlink failed - Bad file descriptor

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2000-07-24 16:04:49 UTC
That's a bug in the old rawhide package; upgrading from
it is not supported (sorry).

Please remove it before installing the new one.

Comment 2 Olivier Baudron 2000-07-24 16:36:54 UTC
I removed netscape-*-4.73-6 packages and then installed the 4.73-8 serie.
But I still have the same error when unpacking netscape-common.

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2000-07-24 18:16:21 UTC
Hmm - make sure /usr/lib/netscape is compeletely removed
before installing the new package.

Comment 4 Olivier Baudron 2000-07-24 18:31:47 UTC
You're right! It works now;)
