From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1)
Description of problem:
When installing packages through yum the install scripts are not
executed. This means the required user/group may not be created. ....
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install yum 2.0.5 (basically be up2date)
2. yum install clamav (using clamav from fedora.us)
3. Notice the clamav user is not created.
If you fetch the same packages manually and install them with:
rpm -Uvh clamav*
It will work just fine.
Expected Results: All scripts should be run as one would have them
execute with a normal rpm install.

still have this problem in rhel5 with yum-3.0.1-5.el5
Do you get any warnings?
What packages do you have this problem with? ... I can only assume it's not all
You are running the "yum update" from the console as root?
There are a lot of fixes in the RHEL5.1 errata, have you tried that?
Do you have SELinux turned on and enabled? ... if so can you give the recent
audit AVC messages.
If all else fails can you upload an strace of yum failing (strace -f), that is.
