ApplixWare 5.0 doesn't install any longer. I'm guessing it is an RPM issue
since it installs fine on older releases of RHL

# ./install.bsh

A series of failed dependency errors follow. This may also be an Applix
issue, but I'm reporting it per Aaron Brown's suggestion.

please copy output rpm -qp --scripts shelf-bin-shelf-base*rpm.
Comment 2 Chris Runge 2001-02-24 10:10:38 EST
$ rpm -qp --scripts shelf-bin-shelf-base*rpm
postinstall script (through /bin/sh):
# Set the correct value for AXDATA (axdata/daxdata)
if [ -d $RPM_INSTALL_PREFIX/axdata ]; then
	AXDATA=$RPM_INSTALL_PREFIX/axdata
else
	AXDATA=$RPM_INSTALL_PREFIX/daxdata
fi

# Set the symbolic link for libfontfs
if [ -f $AXDATA/axshlib/libaxfontfs.so ]; then
	pushd $AXDATA/axshlib
	ln -sf libaxfontfs.so libfontfs.so
	popd
fi

# Set the symbolic link for builder
ln -sf $RPM_INSTALL_PREFIX/builder /bin/builder

# Set the menu command

$AXDATA/setup/desktop --install -a builder -s $AXDATA/setup -e $RPM_INSTALL_PREFIX

Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 2001-04-03 08:00:02 EDT
This is almost certainly an issue with --prefix and/or --relocate.
Comment 4 Jeff Johnson 2001-04-03 09:44:39 EDT
Fixed --relocate in rpm CVS, should be in rpm-4.0.3-0.4 and later.
