Description Sammy 2001-08-28 20:39:40 UTC
Description of Problem:

In 2.2-6 I first removed "rm -rf /usr/share/config/kdm"
then I installed the package. The link that was created
contained some special characters! e.g.

kdm;8F340234---> ../../../etc/kde/kdm

something similar to that. I removed it and replaced it with kdm
only and it started to work.

Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-08-29 10:54:15 UTC
The proper procedure for updating from <= 2.2-6 to >= 2.2-7 is

rpm -e --nodeps kdebase
rpm -ivh kdebase-2.2-8.i386.rpm

The problem is that rpm can't handle replacing a directory with a symlink, 
which is what we're doing. (The fact that it was a directory rather than a 
symlink was a bug in 2.2-1 to 2.2-6, which we never released officially [and 
rawhide is supposed to break occasionally ;)])
