Description j. alan eldridge 2001-09-24 23:23:36 UTC
Description of Problem:
The pre-install scripts for the headers do:

[ -L /usr/include/linux ] && rm -f /usr/include/linux
[ -L /usr/include/asm ] && rm -f /usr/include/asm

But if those aren't links, it's NOT a failure. But, since the result of the executions 
was false, rpm bitches and bags the install.

Make it:

[ -L /usr/include/linux ] && rm -f /usr/include/linux || true
[ -L /usr/include/asm ] && rm -f /usr/include/asm || true

and then this false-failure won't happen.

I agree on the solution.

However, how did those headers get there ? And RPM will bitch if 
there are files with the same names there.....
