Description Enrico Scholz 2001-08-02 08:46:46 EDT
gnumeric owns files under /usr/share/gnumeric/0.67/python/ and
/usr/lib/gnumeric/0.67 but not the corresponding subdirs:

| $ rpm -qf /usr/share/gnumeric/0.67/python/ /usr/lib/gnumeric/0.67/
| file /usr/share/gnumeric/0.67/python is not owned by any package
| gnumeric-devel-0.67-6

(Although /usr/lib/gnumeric/0.67 is owned by the -devel package, it's not
owned by the base-package which has files there).

This leads to warning while updating the rpm-package:

--------
$ rpm -Uvh gnumeric-*0.67-6*
Warnung: /usr/lib/gnumeric/0.67 directory created with perms 0755.
Warnung: /usr/lib/gnumeric/0.67/plugins directory created with perms 0755.
Warnung: /usr/share/gnumeric/0.67 directory created with perms 0755.
Warnung: /usr/share/gnumeric/0.67/python directory created with perms 0755.
Warnung: /usr/share/locale/en_CA directory created with perms 0755.
Warnung: /usr/share/locale/en_CA/LC_MESSAGES directory created with perms 0755.

This defect is considered SHOULD-FIX for Fairfax.
Comment 2 Owen Taylor 2001-08-03 18:49:20 EDT
Everything but the en_CA message should be fixed by
gnumeric-0.67-6

The en_CA problem, if it is a problem, is probably a
problem with glibc-common. But if you do a rpm -qf
in /usr/share/locale, you'll see that there are
a whole lot of other unknowned directories, so maybe
it isn't a problem at all. I don't know.

I don't think individual packages should be owning
directories in /usr/share/locale anyways.


Comment 3 Enrico Scholz 2001-08-03 19:02:04 EDT
Regarding the /usr/share/locale/* dirs I have filed bug #50747 already.
Comment 4 Jay Turner 2002-04-02 12:09:14 EST
Fix confirmed with the Skipjack packages.
