Description Arenas Belon, Carlo Marcelo 2001-02-01 23:08:40 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.16-22 i686)

makewhatis uses find internally but findutils (where find is) is not a
prereq to this package, resulting on a broken dependency if findutils is

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. su -l
2. rpm -ev find
3. makewhatis


Actual Results:  /usr/sbin/makewhatis: find: command not found
/usr/sbin/makewhatis: find: command not found
/usr/sbin/makewhatis: find: command not found
/usr/sbin/makewhatis: find: command not found
/usr/sbin/makewhatis: find: command not found

We (Red Hat) should really fix this before next release
Comment 2 Arenas Belon, Carlo Marcelo 2001-02-02 18:06:29 EST
needed ERRATA from the original post.

to reproduce :

1) su -l
2) rpm -ev findutils
3) makewhatis

and when i mean there is a missing prereq, i mean adding to SPEC :

Requires: findutils

take into consideration than adding Prereq: findutils has not the same intended
