Description of problem:
'yum install virt-manager' fails with %pre scriptlet error.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install & update a Fedora 8 distribution
2. yum install virt-manager

Actual results:
Downloading Packages:
(1/1): virt-manager-0.5.2 100% |=========================| 1.2 MB    00:01     
Running rpm_check_debug

error:   install: %pre scriptlet failed (2), skipping virt-manager-0.5.2-2.fc8

Installed: virt-manager.x86_64 0:0.5.2-2.fc8

Expected results:
Package installs without error.

Additional info:
Previously running the same command installed all other dependencies and failed
for virt-manager package. Although there is an error yum shows that the package
is installed.

$ rpm -qa | grep virt

virt-manager is not installed.

The host machine is a Xen paravirtual guest running on RHEL 5.1. Everything else
works fine. 

NOTE: Running virtualization layer on top of already virtualized system will
lead to poor performance but that should not be a reason for the package to install.

Interesting thing is that today I managed to install the same version
virt-manager without any problems. I only upgraded this morning to the latest F8

THis doesn't appear to be reproducable - I can only assume a transient fault
with your GConf install, since that's all that virt-manager runs in %pre & we
have a correct Requires(pre): GConf2 already.
