Description Peter Bieringer 2009-07-24 09:15:02 UTC
Description of problem:
I can't deinstall redhat-menus (during cleanup of unnecessary RPMs) without --noscripts because it calls not installed update-desktop-database

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHEL 5.3 with minimal setup
2. yum remove redhat-menus
Actual results:
  Erasing        : redhat-menus                                      [1/1]
/var/tmp/rpm-tmp.1768: line 1: update-desktop-database: command not found

Removed: redhat-menus.noarch 0:6.7.8-3.el5

and the last line is not valid, RPM is still installed

# rpm -e redhat-menus
/var/tmp/rpm-tmp.83048: line 1: update-desktop-database: command not found
error: %postun(redhat-menus-6.7.8-3.el5.noarch) scriptlet failed, exit status 127

Expected results:

Clean deinstall

Still not fixed since a year :-(

Comment 2 RHEL Program Management 2014-03-07 12:52:04 UTC
This bug/component is not included in scope for RHEL-5.11.0 which is the last RHEL5 minor release. This Bugzilla will soon be CLOSED as WONTFIX (at the end of RHEL5.11 development phase (Apr 22, 2014)). Please contact your account manager or support representative in case you need to escalate this bug.

Comment 3 RHEL Program Management 2014-06-02 13:21:28 UTC
Thank you for submitting this request for inclusion in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5. We've carefully evaluated the request, but are unable to include it in RHEL5 stream. If the issue is critical for your business, please provide additional business justification through the appropriate support channels (https://access.redhat.com/site/support).

Comment 4 Peter Bieringer 2014-09-08 17:40:26 UTC
WONTFIX accepted
