Description Olivier Baudron 2000-07-24 04:30:23 EDT
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 12:04:49 EDT
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 12:36:54 EDT
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 14:16:21 EDT
Hmm - make sure /usr/lib/netscape is compeletely removed
before installing the new package.
Comment 4 Olivier Baudron 2000-07-24 14:31:47 EDT
You're right! It works now;)
