Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 4098
rpm fails to realize a filesystem is RO
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:51 EDT
rpm fails to realize it cannot write when /usr is mounted
RO and an rpm -e or rpm -U
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
This issue has been assigned to a developer for further action.

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.
