Description Jos Vos 2002-07-24 05:14:39 EDT
The nvi-* package contains a %post scripts that creates symlinks (using the
$RPM_BUILD_ROOT shell variable (!), which evaluates to the empty string - I hope
- during binary package installation). Instead of this, the symlinks should be
created in the %install part of the rpm so that they belong - administratively -
to the package.
Comment 1 Nakai 2002-08-14 04:59:10 EDT
$RPM_BUILD_ROOTs in %preun, %post are removed
(nvi-m17n-1.79-20011024.6) but
putting them in %install is impossible because it creates
2 packages, with-canna and no-canna.
