Description Michal Jaegermann 2006-03-09 16:12:29 EST
Description of problem:

There are two troubles with a %post script in gnome-applets-2.13.90-6.

One that it uses "/etc/gconf/schemas/divemount.schemas" while this
should be "drivemount".

The other is that there is a bunch of trailing blanks after '\' and
this is trying to pass to gconftool-2 a schema with a name " ", not
very succesfully, followed by an attempt to execute the next line
(which, not that surprisingly, also fails).

In that respect writing that part of %post in such style:

export GCONF_CONFIG_SOURCE=`gconftool-2 --get-default-source`

gconftool-2 --makefile-install-rule $slist >/dev/null

is "safer" as it is not sensitive with respect to trailing whitespace.

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