Description Michal Jaegermann 2008-02-17 19:44:38 UTC
Description of problem:

An update to libgcj-4.3.0-0.9 causes the following:

install-info: menu item `Classpath Tools' already exists, for file `tools'

And inddeed there in /usr/share/info/dir there is already an entry:

* Classpath Tools: (tools).       GNU Classpath Tools Guide

Only an info file 'tools' does not exist anymore so this is "dead".
There is now 'cp-tools' but an attempt to crete a corresponding
entry failed as above.

One of possible way out would be to check for a failure of
/sbin/install-info in a %post script and if that happens just
try to edit /usr/share/info/dir (with 'sed -i ...', for example).

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

Comment 1 Jakub Jelinek 2008-02-19 16:14:33 UTC
Should be fixed in libgcj-4.3.0-0.10.  As the problematic dir entries
were just in libgcj-4.3.0-0.[1-9], not even in some alpha release, adding a
%prein  workaround would be an overkill.
