* thunderbird-1.0.2-1.4.1
* firefox-1.0.2-1.4.1

I just pulled down from fresh updates to my RHEL4 box.  These updates included
thunderbird and firefox.  At the end of the up2date, I got the following error:
/var/tmp/rpm-tmp.70614: line 5:
/usr/lib/firefox-1.0/firefox-rebuild-databases.pl: No such file or directory

I'm honestly not sure which script or trigger is at fault.  Looking through the
installed packages afterward, I cannot for an reference to
/usr/lib/firefox-1.0/.  So maybe this was a postun in an older package?

Here is a fuller console log.

Comment 1 Mike McLean 2005-03-23 16:25:03 EST
ugh. I think I found my problem -- bogus rpmdb entry

Shortly after I installed RHEL4, I upgraded to a non-released firefox package
(1.0-13.EL4) to fix the text selection bug.  Apparently when the previous
firefox update (1.0.1-1.4.3) was applied, the -13.EL4 package did not remove
cleanly.  Its rpmdb entry was still present (I found this out by looking at
/var/log/rpmpkgs).

So when I applied this most recent update (1.0.2-1.4.1), the -13.EL4 firefox
%postun kicked in and created the error.

Closing as NOTABUG
