Description Karsten Hopp 2006-03-14 15:53:09 UTC
Description of problem:
an update from GConf-1.0.9-18.2.1 to GConf-1.0.9-20 resulted in an postun script

Cleanup   : GConf                        ##################### [625/892]
/sbin/ldconfig: relative path `2' used to build cache
error: %postun(GConf-1.0.9-18.2.1.i386) scriptlet failed, exit status 1

Comment 1 Ray Strode [halfline] 2007-03-06 18:48:28 UTC
so the %postun for GConf just has:

%postun -p /sbin/ldconfig

rpm must be passing the "Number of currently installed GConf packages" argument
to  /sbin/ldconfig (as if the scriplet said:

/sbin/ldconfig $1

Reassigning to rpm.

Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 2007-03-08 13:03:33 UTC
Yes. There has been a patch in ldconfig ikn the past to eliminate
the warning message. Re-adding the patch to glibc is going to
be far far easier than changing and redistributing rpm.

Eliminating $1/$2 args from rpm is underway, but the change is going to
take years to run to completion.

Comment 5 Bug Zapper 2008-04-03 17:07:54 UTC
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are
flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.

If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or
rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version
or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.)

Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled
these issues to this point.

The process we're following is outlined here:

We will be following the process here:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping to ensure this
doesn't happen again.

Comment 6 Bug Zapper 2008-05-07 00:26:48 UTC
This bug has been in NEEDINFO for more than 30 days since feedback was
first requested. As a result we are closing it.
