Description Michal Jaegermann 2005-07-11 17:52:43 EDT
Description of problem:

Look at this:

# rpm -U --force mozilla-1.7.8-2.x86_64.rpm
# rpm -V mozilla
missing     /usr/lib64/mozilla-1.7.8/chrome/overlayinfo/browser
missing     /usr/lib64/mozilla-1.7.8/chrome/overlayinfo/browser/content
missing     /usr/lib64/mozilla-1.7.8/chrome/overlayinfo/browser/skin
missing     /usr/lib64/mozilla-1.7.8/chrome/overlayinfo/cookie
missing     /usr/lib64/mozilla-1.7.8/chrome/overlayinfo/cookie/content
missing     /usr/lib64/mozilla-1.7.8/chrome/overlayinfo/editor
missing     /usr/lib64/mozilla-1.7.8/chrome/overlayinfo/editor/content
missing     /usr/lib64/mozilla-1.7.8/chrome/overlayinfo/global
missing     /usr/lib64/mozilla-1.7.8/chrome/overlayinfo/global/content
missing     /usr/lib64/mozilla-1.7.8/chrome/overlayinfo/global/skin

So where they went?  All these directories (they are directories) are
present if one will unpack using rpm2cpio.

It appears that some installation scripts are executing in an unexpected
order.  On i386 installation there are missing directories too. Maybe 
instead of

  /bin/rm -rf /usr/lib64/mozilla-1.7.8/chrome/overlayinfo

in scriplets one should have there:

  find /usr/lib64/mozilla-1.7.8/chrome/overlayinfo ! -type d | xargs rm -f

The original missing pieces were revealed during an 'rpm -Va' check which 
I run for other reasons.
