Description Michal Jaegermann 2006-11-29 15:04:13 EST
Description of problem:

Due to errors in a package an update fails.  See bug 217750 for
details of that with a new ncurses package.  yum prints on a screen

  Updating  : ncurses                      ##################### [ 18/162]
error: unpacking of archive failed on file /lib/terminfo/v/vt220;456dcf2f: cpio:
link

although not in log. Still in /var/log/yum.log one can find later

Nov 29 11:20:26 Updated: ncurses.x86_64 5.5-25.20060715.fc7
Nov 29 11:21:29 Updated: ncurses-devel.x86_64 5.5-25.20060715.fc7

while, after that "update" 'rpm -q' reports ncurses-5.5-24.20060715
and indeed ncurses-devel-5.5-25.20060715.fc7 even if ncurses-devel
have an explicit dependency 'ncurses = 5.5-25.20060715.fc7'.  Ugh!

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
yum-3.0.1-2.fc7
