Description Emmes, Fabian 1999-10-08 14:13:53 UTC
example:

package1 contains
/directory/

package2 contains
/directory/file
and requires package1

# rpm -e package1 package2
cannot remove /directory - directory not empty
#

while
# rpm -e package2 package1
#

This problem will be addressed after rpm-4.0 is released.

Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 2001-05-22 18:14:01 UTC
rpm-4.0.3 erases packages in reverse order, reverses file lists as well, to
preserve
time reversal symmetry.
