Description Jonathan Kamens 2008-02-18 16:55:17 EST
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.
