Description Valdis Kletnieks 2008-07-14 11:32:22 EDT
Description of problem:
Bad quoting in this scriptlet:
preinstall scriptlet (using /bin/sh):
if [ $1 -gt 1 ]; then
    # Upgrade => deregister old extension
    unopkg remove --shared `grep identifier
/usr/lib64/openoffice.org/extensions/presenter-screen.oxt/description.xml | cut
-d\\\" -f 2` || :
causes yum to throw an error:

/usr/src/redhat/tmp/rpm-tmp.58165: command substitution: line 3: unexpected EOF
while looking for matching `"'
/usr/src/redhat/tmp/rpm-tmp.58165: command substitution: line 4: syntax error:
unexpected end of file
  Updating       : openoffice.org-presenter-screen                 [ 6/39] 

Looks like -d\\\" doesn't have quite enough \ in it.  Would -d'"' work better?
(similar issue in preuninstall scriptlet)

Hmm, thanks. Lets try that instead
Comment 2 Caolan McNamara 2008-07-19 12:15:24 EDT
Fixed in 3.0.0-, though note that the m24 one on uninstalling will
probably still warn, but the m25 on installing and from there onwards will be ok
