Description Roel van Meer 2001-07-27 10:31:07 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.72 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.18 i686)

Description of problem:
the binutils rpm uses /sbin/install-info in its postinstall script, but has
no dependancy on info, which provides /sbin/install-info.
When installing a custom system with anaconda, chances are that binutils
gets installed _before_ info does, so the postinstall script will fail.

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install a custom system with anaconda
2. see output from /tmp/install.log below
3.
	

Actual Results:  Installing binutils.
/var/tmp/rpm-tmp.71027: /sbin/install-info: No such file or directory
/var/tmp/rpm-tmp.71027: /sbin/install-info: No such file or directory
/var/tmp/rpm-tmp.71027: /sbin/install-info: No such file or directory
/var/tmp/rpm-tmp.71027: /sbin/install-info: No such file or directory
/var/tmp/rpm-tmp.71027: /sbin/install-info: No such file or directory
/var/tmp/rpm-tmp.71027: /sbin/install-info: No such file or directory
/var/tmp/rpm-tmp.71027: /sbin/install-info: No such file or directory
execution of %post scriptlet from binutils-2.9.5.0.22-6 failed, exit status
126



Expected Results:  anaconda should have installed info before binutils

Additional info:

Chances are that in other systems info does get installed before binutils
due to some other requirement.
Comment 1 Jakub Jelinek 2001-08-03 13:07:17 EDT
This was fixed in binutils that are in 7.1 distribution and up.
I don't think it is severe enough to require errata for 6.2.
