Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 601628
java_cup should depend on coreutils because postinstall script uses cat
Last modified: 2010-12-04 05:52:57 EST
Description of problem:
java_cup postinstall script uses cat but package doesn't depend on coreutils.
It might make sense to fix rpm in general to detect this kind of problem at package build time.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install java_cup before installing coreutils
cat: command not found
postinstall script should work
Not fixed in F14 Development yet (Sep 11, 2010).
Fix is trivial.
Here's a handy way to check for failure:
grep -A1 "Installing java_cup-0" /root/install.log
Tip: This is a handy idiom to ferret out installatio errors:
grep -B1 -v '^Installing' /root/install.log
