Description o.schnapauff 1999-07-18 09:22:33 EDT
rpm fails to realize it cannot write  when /usr is mounted
RO and an rpm -e or rpm -U
is done.

Result: partly updated  /deleted rpms that are marked as
updated/deleted in the rpm database.

rpm needs to check if it can write on a filesystem

Comment 3 o.schnapauff 2000-11-01 10:25:18 EST
This bug has _still_ not been fixed. its bad, esp. when you erase a packet
and /usr is ro - > its erased but all the files under /usr are
still there and there is not way to get rid of them but reinstall and reerase.
