Description of problem:

uninstalling with "yum remove gnuplot"
gives this error "Error in PREUN scriptlet in rpm package g"

doing "rpm -e gnuplot"
gives this other error
"errore: scriptlet %preun(gnuplot-4.2.4-6.fc11.i586) fallita, uscita con stato 2"

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


Actual results:
unable to remove package gnuplot

Expected results:
gnupot package is removed 

Additional info:
looking at this bug #223693 [https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=223693 ] and looking in to the .spec file makes me think is that the line 

%{_sbindir}/alternatives --remove gnuplot %{_bindir}/gnuplot-wx

should look someting like 

%{_sbindir}/alternatives --remove gnuplot %{_bindir}/gnuplot-wx || :

but i' not so sure... (no .spec or file packaging experience, sorry!!!, dont blame me if i'm in the wrong direction)

also "rpm -e --nopreun gnuplot" does the job of remove the unwanted package :)
