Description Joachim Frieben 2006-07-15 09:21:56 EDT
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):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install "gzip-1.3.5-6.2.2"
Actual results:
Post-install script complains about empty file "gzip.info.gz"

Expected results:
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

Comment 3 Joachim Frieben 2006-09-21 14:15:11 EDT
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 ..".
Comment 4 Ivana Varekova 2006-09-22 04:46:08 EDT
Fixed in gzip-1.3.5-7.1.fc5.
