RPM fails to install files
Last modified: 2009-03-12 10:27:40 EDT
Description of problem:
On the OLPC XO platform, install of .rpm package appears to work normally, however no files are actually installed. The rpm db is updated however. It possible, for example, to rpm -e the package even though the package was not really installed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install ghex2 (rpm install appears normal)
2. which ghex2 (no such file...)
3. rpm -e ghex2 (works)
No files are installed.
Files from the rpm package should be installed
rpm-4.6.0 works fine
Most likely dupe of bug 489235. Upgrading to rpm-4.7.0-0.beta1.3.fc11 should fix but note that you'll need to do the upgrade with %_install_langs set to "all" (or commented out) to avoid losing rpm itself...
With no further info, considering this as a dupe (and fixed). Feel free to reopen if you still see it with rpm-4.7.0-0.beta1.3.fc11.
