Description Wade Mealing 2007-06-18 01:58:21 EDT
Description of problem:

gstreamer plugins update fails when upgrading (linux upgrade) from anaconda, it
looks as though the post-un section of the rpm runs gstreamer which, doesnt
exist during an upgrade.

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

Upgrading from: gstreamer-plugins-0.6.0-18.i386.rpm 
Upgrading to:   gstreamer-plugins-0.8.5-1.EL.0.i386.rpm 

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install rhel3.8 (include desktop/gstreamer components)
2. upgrade (through anaaconda) to rhel4.5  (include desktop/gstramer components)
3. Watch gstreamer-plugins upgrade fail
Actual results:

error: %postun(gstreamer-plugins-0.6.0-18.ppc) scriptlet failed, exit status 127.

Expected results:

Upgrade to continue.

Additional info:

Seems to be a problem in the spec file, the rhel4u5 spec file changes ..

env DISPLAY= /usr/bin/gst-register-0.8 >/dev/null 2>&1


env DISPLAY= /usr/bin/gst-register-0.8 >/dev/null 2>&1 || true

Comment 11 Adam Jackson 2007-09-20 15:44:52 EDT
Building as gstreamer-plugins 0.8.5-1.EL.1.  MODIFIED.
Comment 12 Adam Jackson 2007-09-21 10:56:24 EDT
Build failed:

Checking for unpackaged file(s): /usr/lib/rpm/check-files
error: Installed (but unpackaged) file(s) found:

Full log at:

I assume we don't intend to change the plugin set for 4.6, so I'll fix the spec
file to nuke this plugin from the installroot before package creation.  Back out
Comment 13 Adam Jackson 2007-09-21 11:46:23 EDT
Built a new gstreamer-plugins 0.8.5-1.EL.1 successfully.  Back to MODIFIED.
