Empty "gzip.info.gz" info file
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:37 EST
Description of problem:
During installation of "gzip-1.3.5-6.2.2", the post install script
aborts with message
"install-info: /usr/share/info/gzip.info.gz: empty file
error: %post(gzip-1.3.5-6.2.2) scriptlet failed, exit status 1"
It turns out that the info file is actually empty.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install "gzip-1.3.5-6.2.2"
Post-install script complains about empty file "gzip.info.gz"
The package should install cleanly, and the info file should
contain relevant info on the "gzip" package.
Mid-air collision: fixed the very same day in gzip-1.3.5-7.
Don't think it's fixed, rom FC5 yum update:
install-info: /usr/share/info/gzip.info.gz: empty file
error: %post(gzip-1.3.5-7.fc5.i386) scriptlet failed, exit status 1
gzip i386 1.3.5-7.fc5 updates-testing 87 k
I am using "Fedora rawhide", but if I download the "gzip-1.3.5-7.fc5"
package, I can open it with "file-roller" and extract the "gzip.info.gz"
file which itself is perfectly readable by means of "info -f ..".
Fixed in gzip-1.3.5-7.1.fc5.
