Description Derek Tattersall 2001-01-26 04:09:46 UTC
In an everything update from RHL7.0, the following message appears in
Upgrading LPRng.
execution of %postun scriptlet from LPRng-3.6.24-2 failed, exit status 127

Crutcher has been looking at this, but has not yet found a solution.

Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2001-01-26 10:34:13 UTC
Looks like this to me:

preun: LPRng removes /etc/rc.d/init.d/lpd
new LPRng is installed, which does not have an lpd initscript
postun: old LPRng tries to exec /etc/rc.d/init.d/lpd, which isn't there any

Easy fix would be to give LPRng a prereq for printconf.

Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2001-01-26 10:34:44 UTC
(because printconf is the package that owns the initscript now)

Right, I'm not happy with the resolution of this, but it is fixed in rawhide.
