Description Michal Jaegermann 2006-11-20 12:54:12 EST
Description of problem:

Try this:

# rpm -V system-config-display
missing     /usr/share/system-config-display/monitorDialog.pyc
missing     /usr/share/system-config-display/screenSizePreview.pyc
missing     /usr/share/system-config-display/videocardDialog.pyc
missing     /usr/share/system-config-display/xConfigDialog.pyc
missing     /usr/share/system-config-display/xconf.pyc

The problem seems to caused here:
# rpm -q --scripts system-config-display
preuninstall scriptlet (using /bin/sh):
if [ -d /usr/share/system-config-display ] ; then
  rm -rf /usr/share/system-config-display/*.pyc

Now when doing a yum update first yum is putting a new version
and later is getting into a "Cleanup" phase with an old version
and all *.pyc files are gone regardless of an owner package.

If these files are not really needed then why they are removed
only in "preuninstall" and can they have %ghost markings in specs?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
