Description of problem:

If I have no installed initscripts. installing via yum. 

Installing: policycoreutils              ##################### 
/var/tmp/rpm-tmp.59474: line 1: service: command not found
error: %post(policycoreutils-1.30.1-3.fc5.i386) scriptlet failed, exit status 127

#rpm -qp --scripts policycoreutils-1.30.1-3.fc5.i386.rpm
warning: policycoreutils-1.30.1-3.fc5.i386.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID
postinstall scriptlet (using /bin/sh):
service restorecond condrestart
# rpm -qp --requires policycoreutils-1.30.1-3.fc5.i386.rpm | grep init
warning: policycoreutils-1.30.1-3.fc5.i386.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID

policycoreutils do not require initscripts, but use service.

Can you make check for service exist? like
[ -f "/sbin/service" ] && service restorecond condrestart
or add requirement in spec? like
PreReq: initscripts

 Fixed in 1.30.8 -1.fc5
Comment 2 Ralf Corsepius 2006-05-17 07:30:03 EDT
IMO, the advice given in comment #1 is questionable and actually means playing
with symptoms:

It would be better to
Require(post): /sbin/service

and to call
/sbin/service ....
