gcc - libgcj update gets complaints from install-info
Last modified: 2008-02-19 11:14:33 EST
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):
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.
