Description of problem:
There doesn't appear to be a way to install an RPM package while disabling its %posttrans scriptlet. The '--noscripts' and '--notriggers' switches fail to disable the %posttrans.
Is this intentional? Should there be a way to disable %posttrans?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Generate an RPM with a %posttrans scriptlet
2. Install with 'rpm --noscripts foo.rpm'
Not intentional, just never completed implementation. The birthing of %posttrans
has always been controversial. Another flaw is that %posttrans from erased
packages cannot be run.
Add --test will disable running of %posttrans (but also disables installing).
There is a way to disable @rpm5.org, added this weekend past, but that is not the rpm
that this bugzilla tracks.
Certainly not intentional, just another quirk/flaw of pre/posttrans like noted above. Fixed upstream at rpm.org now.
Fixed in rawhide as of rpm-4.6.0-0.rc4.1.fc11
