Description of Problem:

When updating fileutils-4.1.2-1 to fileutils-4.1.2-2 the %post scriptlet fails:

$ rpmU fileutils-4.1.2-2.i386.rpm
install-info: menu item `GNU Free Documentation License' already exists,
for file `(none)'
Fehler: execution of %post scriptlet from fileutils-4.1.2-2 failed, exit
status 1

This is caused by missing filename-specifiers in the coreutils.info file:

$ zcat /usr/share/info/coreutils.info.gz | head    
This is coreutils.info, produced by makeinfo version 4.0b from

* GNU Utilities: (coreutils).         GNU Utilities.
* Common options:                     Common options.
* File permissions:                   Access modes.
* Date input formats:                 Specifying date strings.
* Opening the software toolbox:       The software tools philosophy.
* GNU Free Documentation License:     The license for this documentation.

There the "Common options:" ... "GNU Free Doc..." entries should have a 
'(coreutils).' after the colon.

*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 56759 ***
Comment 2 Enrico Scholz 2001-11-29 10:33:58 EST
It's not a duplicate... 

#56759 was because of already existing info-files; this bug is because of
ill-formated info-entries.

(verified with fileutils-4.1.2-3 also)
Comment 3 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-12-03 10:14:25 EST
Fixed in 4.1.3-1
