Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 162970
mozilla - apparent packaging problems
Last modified: 2018-04-11 06:49:31 EDT
Description of problem:
Look at this:
# rpm -U --force mozilla-1.7.8-2.x86_64.rpm
# rpm -V mozilla
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
/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.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
