Description of problem:
When an installation fails due to an operating system error, up2date
what the error was: it just dies.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. chattr +i /bin/login (this makes the system more secure)
2. run up2date and upgrade to util-linux-2.10s-13.7i386.rpm
Actual Results: up2date dies with no indication why
Expected Results: up2date should have reported the operating system error
"/bin/login could not be renamed to /bin/login-RPMDELETE"
I'll take a look.
up2date should be made to at least reported that there was a
an rpm error, and what that error was if possible.
This could get interesting...
current versions (7.3..) of the client should be better about this. The
librpm error reporting was improved, and up2date was modified to
make use of the extra info.
Latest version messages errors to user. Closing
