Description of problem:
The Kpackage pops up an error when it starts to install an RPM package. No
numeric error is indicated. Under GNOME the problem is the same, it does
not let you install any RPM.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Try to install an RPM for instance StarOffice ( any can be chosen ).
2.After a few seconds apparently when the installer decompreses files it
inmediatly pops up a message saying Kpackage error please contact
3.It always happened. I tried to install the operating system four ( from
the begining ) times and the problem persists.
Actual Results: Nothing. The problem is not solved.
Expected Results: The Kpackage should have to show up the files to
install from the package. No files appear.
I tried to install RPMs from GNOME and KDE with the same results. I could
not install any aditional package from the distribution, for instance
StarOffice. No numeric error is reported.
kpackage does display an error message but the packages *are* installed.
I've verified this behavior on a 7.1 system before and after applying all
of the security/bug-fix errata. Packages were successfully installed from
CDROM and an NFS share.
Closing as NOTABUG since the packages are installed (though, I do believe
that the error message should still be dealt with -- see bug# 49266)
