uninstalling tetex when installed with rpm 3.0.2 doesn't
quite work right. Errors are:

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 1999-07-31 19:09:59 EDT
This is a manifestation of a different problem. During a tetex
upograde, rpm incorrectly removed shared files (of which there
are many in tetex). When you uninstalled tetex, the already
removed files were detected. I suspect that rpm uninstalled the
package correctly.

To avoid this problem in the future, upgrade to rpm-3.0.2-6.0.
You will then be able to install/uninstall tetex w/o problem.

Please reopen this bug if I'm incorrect.
Comment 2 nelson 1999-07-31 23:06:59 EDT
I am running rpm-3.0.2-6.0, this bug occurs there with tetex RPMs from
Redhat 5.2, 6.0, and Rawhde. Also, this error occurs when removing
tetex after it was installed clean, not just an upgrade.
Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 1999-08-14 16:00:59 EDT
This is an rpm, not a tetex, problem, and will be fixed in rpm-3.0.3.
When removing multiple packages as part of a transaction set, rpm
was attempting to remove files shared between packages in the
transaction set on each occurence rather than the last occurence.
