xulrunner update ends up with "Error unpacking rpm package..."
Last modified: 2018-04-11 10:47:19 EDT
Description of problem:
More precisely the error is:
Error unpacking rpm package xulrunner-1.9-0.beta3.22.nightly20080215.fc9.x86_64
error: unpacking of archive failed on file
/usr/lib64/xulrunner-1.9pre/dictionaries: cpio: rename
The issue really is that /usr/lib64/xulrunner-1.9pre/directory,
owned by xulrunner-1.9-0.beta2.18.nightly20080210.fc9.x86_64,
inddeed exixts but in xulrunner-1.9-0.beta3.22.nightly20080215.fc9
this is a link to /usr/share/myspell/ (owned by hunspell).
An update attempt leaves a "garbage" link
That can be recovered by running 'rpm -e --nodeps xulrunner',
cleaning up leftovers and installing the current version.
Is this deemed "we do not care" as earlier distros do not include
xulrunner so no conflict on upgrades will show up?
