Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 30979
/tmp/install mozilla-psm install error
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:59 EDT
From an install of RC2 in /tmp/install.log:
execution of %post scriptlet from mozilla-psm-0.7-14 failed, exit status
Was it installed before the mozilla package was? Jeff, didn't you fix this
ordering bug in rpm? That -14 rpm is the most recent and uses Prereq: not
Requires: so it should be working.
Also the same as 23466. I'll mark it once Jeff answers.
Yes, the psm package was installed far before the other mozilla packages.
Flinging over the fence to jbj since it's an rpm feature.
The order should be mozilla first, mozilla-psm, the ordering can be verified by
rpm -Uvv mozilla-psm* mozilla* --test
and looking for
D: ========== tsorting packages
D: 0 (1,1) mozilla-0.7-14
D: ========== successors only (presentation order)
D: 1 (1,2) mozilla-psm-0.7-14
Note that mozilla has been sorted before mozilla-psm even though the
packages were given in the opposite order.
Installing all mozilla packages works for me.
I'm not sure if you mean "fixed post-RC2" or not, but I can guarantee that in
RC2 mozilla-psm installs per /tmp/install.log on line 93, and the other two
mozilla packages install on line 200-and-something. This fact along with the
mozilla-psm error in install.log indicates to me that there IS a problem, at
least in RC2.
I just checked with brock and confirmed that the problem is present RC2.
there are 2 changes in rpm that I suspect have not filtered out yet that fix the
Reopening until brock confirms problem is fixed in RCn.
Verified as still present Right Now.
This is an anaconda issue, as anaconda has a precomputed package ordering these
days to avoid cdrom mount flip-flops, msw has gory details. Changing component.
This defect considered MUST-FIX (show-stopper) for Florence Gold
Huh? I just use the ordering that RPM gives me. What version of RPM is
installed in the buildroot? Seems to be 0.28. Should I put 0.41 in there?
I installed the latest RPM in the buildroot. Here's the order around
