Description Albert Strasheim 2010-06-08 06:59:47 EDT
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):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install java_cup before installing coreutils
Actual results:

cat: command not found

Expected results:

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
