Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 199837
missing .pyc files after update via yum
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:38 EST
Description of problem:
After upgrading from an installed package to a newer version of the package,
some .pyc files are missing when querying the rpm database. Previous bugs were
filed for other s-c-* packages. This package still exhibits the problem.
The problem seems to happen because some files that are already owned by the
package are rm *.pyc during the cleanup stage of rpm.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Update system via pup or yum. I use both depending upon package conflict conditions.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run update of yum or pup
2. rpm -qaV |grep missing >rpm-missing.txt as root
3. review output file
Clean report from s-c-language
Refer to other s-c-* programs for similar failures
1.1.11-2 has the fixed scriptlet, sadly the *.pyc will be removed on the preun
of the older package so there isn't much we can do here.
