Description Aleksandar Kostadinov 2007-07-10 15:49:59 EDT
Description of problem:
I ran "up2date -u" and it tried to update httpd (I actually upgraded from 4.4 to
4.5). /var/www/html is a symlink to a NFS mounted directory where root doesn't
have write permissions.

Installer outputs the following error:
error: unpacking of archive failed on file /var/www/html: cpio: chown
There was a fatal RPM install error. The message was:
There was a rpm unpack error installing the package: httpd-2.0.52-32.2.ent

After removing the symlink system installed the rpm flawlessly and an empty html
directory was created.

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

How reproducible:
Should be easy to reproduce
Comment 1 Joe Orton 2007-07-11 09:47:49 EDT
This is expected behaviour with RPM.

If you want to use some directory other than /var/www/html for the document
root, change the DocumentRoot directive in httpd.conf.
