Description Alexander Todorov 2009-06-23 06:44:20 EDT
Description of problem:

Error(s): Installing links-2.2-9.fc11.x86_64
/var/tmp/rpm-tmp.diwJ2v: line 4: readlink: command not found/var/tmp/rpm-tmp.diwJ2v: line 4: [: =: unary operator expected

readlink is provided by coreutils which is installed after links. 

Also the line

[ $(readlink /etc/alternatives/links) = /usr/bin/links2 ]

in %post and %postun should include quotes since we're comparing strings

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install @everyting

Additional info:
no component links in bugzilla so filing against distribution
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2009-06-23 12:17:34 EDT
Moving to releng. We probably shouldn't be including links - we already have elinks in the tree.
Comment 3 Dennis Gregorovic 2009-06-23 13:31:06 EDT
links dropped and will not be included in the next compose.
Comment 4 Marian Ganisin 2009-11-13 05:33:26 EST
Compose RHEL6.0-20091111.0 contains links.
Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 2009-12-16 17:05:19 EST
Please retest with alpha3, or beta.
Comment 7 Dennis Gregorovic 2010-02-04 21:51:46 EST
No links package in RHEL6.0-20100203.3
Comment 8 Alexander Todorov 2010-02-05 04:09:22 EST
$ cd /mnt/redhat/rel-eng/RHEL6.0-20100203.3/6
$ find -name "links*"

Moving to VERIFIED.
