Upgrade rejected if /var/cache is a symlink
Last modified: 2008-08-02 19:40:34 EDT
Description of problem:
I tried to update my FC4 installation to FC5. The update fails if /var/cache or
/var/cache/yum are symlinks to a fs on another partition (I made this for disk
space reasons). If excanging this symlink by a real directory /var/cache/yum
on the boot partition, the update runs.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Starting from the
fc5 install cd.
How reproducible: Every time
Steps to Reproduce:
1. See description.
Actual results: Update fails.
Expected results: Update is running.
Additional info: --
How does the upgrade fail? Does it give you an exception traceback? If so,
please attach the complete dump to this bug report.

Having no more FC4 installations, so I can't reproduce the bug.
