rpm -V fails after upgrade. Missing *.pyc files
Last modified: 2009-01-20 17:06:08 EST
Description of problem:
rpm -V fails after upgrade. Missing .pyc files
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. on a 5.2 system install system-config-kickstart
2. upgrade to 5.3 version of system-config-kickstart
/usr/share/system-config-kickstart/*.pyc files are removed
Files are updated
The rpm package contains this scriptlet
preuninstall scriptlet (using /bin/sh):
if [ -d /usr/share/system-config-kickstart ] ; then
rm -rf /usr/share/system-config-kickstart/*.pyc
Additionally the .pyc files don't appear in the %files section in the spec file. The spec file doesn't seem to fully conform to https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/Python
Simple to fix, assuming we can still fix these sorts of things for 5.3.
system-config-samba had the same issue and they removed the offending script in the 5.3 package. However this will probably need to be release noted.
This should be fixed in system-config-kickstart-126.96.36.199-2.
s-c-kickstart is fixed now but the issue is in the older version.
yum remove system-config-kickstart && yum install-system-config-kickstart makes it verify again.
Does this need a release note?
