Uninstallation of gdm fails due to %postun scriptlet error
Last modified: 2015-01-14 18:20:48 EST
Description of problem:
Uninstallation of gdm leaves gdm at least partly on the system if done normally
by Yum. rpm -e gdm --noscripts can still remove it, though.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum -y install gdm
2. rpm -e gdm
[root@fedora ~]# rpm -e gdm
I/O warning : failed to load external entity
Failed to open `/etc/gconf/schemas/gdm-simple-greeter.schemas': No such file or
error: %postun(gdm-2.21.10-0.2008.04.03.1.fc9.i386) scriptlet failed, exit status 1
[root@fedora ~]# rpm -q gdm
Gdm should get removed from the system.
The original installation was done from the Fedora 9 beta DVD. I think I may
have had this problem right from after the installation. I first tried to
resolve the issue by updating the system. However, I am still having the problem
even with the most recent gdm package.
