Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 433375
need to clean up directory /usr/lib/xulrunner-1.90re/dictionaries before trying to replace it with a symbolic link

Can't install current xulrunnner from rawhide:
Error unpacking rpm package xulrunner-1.9-0.beta3.22.nightly20080215.fc9.i386
error: failed to stat /home/jik/.gvfs: Permission denied
error: unpacking of archive failed on file
/usr/lib/xulrunner-1.9pre/dictionaries: cpio: rename
This is because /usr/lib/xulrunner-1.9pre/dictionaries already exists as a
directory, and the new RPM wants it to be a symbolic link.
Don't know whether this is a yum but or an xulrunner RPM bug. Suspect it's
probably the responsibility of the RPM to have a %pre script to clean up in
situations like this.
