Description Paul Nasrat 2006-02-23 17:52:52 EST
Description of problem:

Updating: beagle
/var/tmp/rpm/rpm-tpm.97919: line 8: cd: /usr/lib64/firefox-
No such file or directory

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install beagle (assuming firefox installed) on a ppc64 box
Actual results:

Trigger fails

Expected results:

Trigger works

Additional info:

You can not assume the presence of lib64 indicates that that is the primary
arch, this is untrue on big-endian 64bit systems (ppc64, sparc64) which run the
32 bit arch as the primary arch.  The trigger is completely incorrect for these
Comment 1 Matthias Clasen 2006-02-23 23:10:35 EST
Hmm, I could do 

if [ -d /usr/lib64/firefox-$latest/extensions ]; then

Or can I use %{_libdir} in a trigger ?  That would be nicer.

Comment 3 Matthias Clasen 2006-02-24 01:48:05 EST
I tried to make the trigger more robust, can you try again, Paul ?
Comment 4 Matthias Clasen 2006-03-01 09:55:23 EST
Paul, any luck ?

Warren, did you want to take a stab at improving the trigger ?
Comment 5 Paul Nasrat 2006-03-01 10:29:26 EST
Yes the trigger no longer fails on the G5.
Comment 6 Warren Togami 2006-03-01 16:27:17 EST
I still want to rewrite the entire %post and %trigger because this leaves behind
files and is untracked by RPM.  This is a clean way of doing this.
Comment 7 Warren Togami 2006-03-01 16:27:47 EST
Er, I mean there is a clean way of doing this.
