Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 458721
kernel and rpm get installed twice
Last modified: 2008-08-12 09:45:43 EDT
Description of problem: During a fresh graphical install from Fedora 10 DVD (alpha release), both of the packages kernel-2.6.27-0.166.rc0.git8.fc10.i386 and rpm-2.6.90-0.git8426.9.i386 appear twice in "installing ..." display messages, and both appear twice in /root/install.log.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. fresh graphical install from DVD of Fedora 10 for i386 (alpha release)
2. uncheck "Office and Productivity", leaving only Base system
Actual results: kernel and rpm packages apparently get installed twice. kernel appears as 615 of 977, and as 977 of 977 [i.e., last]. rpm appears somewhere in the middle, and as 976 of 977 [i.e., next to last].
Expected results: Each package is installed only once.
They're not actually getting installed twice. The second time you see those messages, it's just re-accessing those two packages to run the %posttrans script. They occur at the end because that's the end of the transaction. Anyway, this is fixed in the rpm and anaconda that were released after the alpha, as the callback those messages are printed from is no longer run for %posttrans.
