Description Tim Waugh 2001-11-02 18:22:21 EST
Description of Problem:
When installing grep with --excludedocs the %post scriptlet fails because 
the info files are not installed.

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

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -e grep
2. rpm -ivh grep* --excludedocs

Additional Information:
The %post scriptlet should use '|| :' to fix this.
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2001-11-05 10:25:29 EST
Alternatively, perhaps info pages shouldn't be marked as %doc.
Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2001-11-05 10:28:20 EST
The info pages are not marked as %doc.  However, rpm decides not to install 
them anyway if you use --excludedocs.
Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2001-11-09 06:51:30 EST
(This is fixed in 0.f.3)
