Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 16241
upgrade: script execution failed
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:57 EDT
Here is an error message from an anaconda upgrade (/tmp/upgrade.log)
showing an error upgrading apache:
/bin/linuxconf: error while loading shared libraries: libncurses.so.4:
cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
warning: /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf saved as
execution of linuxconf-1.17r2-6 script failed, exit status 127
That's unfortunate. The trigger which dies, however, isn't an important one,
and all of the packages involved still function correctly after the upgrade.
The trigger is also gone from the package in the build tree, so we're looking at
a bug in the old version of the package that turned out to be harmless.

Upgrading 6.2 to RC2 gives the same problem.
For some reason, the fix is to install db2 (or db1, don't remember; anyway, it's the one
containing the missing lib for apache).
the issues resolution would require an errata to linuxconf for 6.2 (purely for
the purpose of removing this message, as core functionality is not affected)...
This is a lower priority issue ... and as such we will defer to the next release
The fact that apache is not upgraded does not look low priority to me.
Am I missing something (perhaps wrt internal cuts) ?
Why not make apache require linuxconf? If linuxconf gets upgraded
first, will this problem go away?
