%pre scriptlet failed when installing virt-manager
Last modified: 2008-04-04 10:54:58 EDT
Description of problem:
'yum install virt-manager' fails with %pre scriptlet error.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install & update a Fedora 8 distribution
2. yum install virt-manager
(1/1): virt-manager-0.5.2 100% |=========================| 1.2 MB 00:01
Running Transaction Test
Finished Transaction Test
Transaction Test Succeeded
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
Package installs without error.
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
$ rpm -qa | grep virt
virt-manager is not installed.
The host machine is a Xen paravirtual guest running on RHEL 5.1. Everything else
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.
