Description Nadav Har'El 2009-03-29 06:51:50 EDT
Last week, after a routine "yum update", bugzilla installed on my system stopped working, giving bizarre database errors each time it is used.

After reading some documents on the web, I discovered that after an upgrade to bugzilla, one must run checksetup.pl. I ran it, and everything returned to normal.

The question is - why doesn't Fedora's bugzilla post-install script run checksetup.pl? How is the user expected to know he supposed to run this script, or even more fundamentally - that bugzilla was upgraded at all? After all, every time I run "yum update" dozens of packages get upgraded, and I don't pay attention to every one (most people probably don't even run yum update manually, and don't see the list of packages at all).

Comment 1 Itamar Reis Peixoto 2009-04-05 00:28:14 EDT
thats true, but bugzilla rpm already do this, please check

[itamar@localhost bugzilla]$ rpm -q bugzilla --scripts

postinstall scriptlet (using /bin/sh):
pushd /usr/share/bugzilla > /dev/null
./checksetup.pl > /dev/null
popd > /dev/null
[itamar@localhost bugzilla]$

I will make some tests, I will probably need to change to something like this, putting the commands inside a parentheses 

(cd /usr/share/bugzilla;
./checksetup.pl > /dev/null

I will test this as soon as possible.
