Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 70612
can't uninstall ypserv
Last modified: 2015-01-07 18:58:34 EST
Description of Problem:
even with no other yp packages installed, get error when uninstalled ypserv
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.#rpm -e yp-tools ypbind
2.#rpm -e ypserv
error reading information on service ypserv: No such file or directory
error: execution of %trigger scriptlet from ypserv-2.3-2 failed, exit status 1
removal of package
I reinstalled ypserv from the cd just to make sure
#rpm -ivh --force ypserv-2.3-2.i386.rpm
#rpm -e ypserv
Must be one of these triggers:
%triggerpostun -- ypserv <= ypserv-1.3.0-2
/sbin/chkconfig --add ypserv
%triggerpostun -- yppasswd
/sbin/chkconfig --add yppasswdd
but none of them should be executed when the ypser 2.3 package is removed.
jbj, i believe you added the triggers, any idea what's up here?
Boy there's a blast from the past.
On my 1st day at Red Hat (5.1, 5/98), I was asked
to add triggers to work around some busted
packages in Red Hat 5.0. This crap ain't been
needed for quite awhile AFAIK.
I'd suggest looking carefully at whether
these triggers are needed anymore, and remove
And add --notriggers to erase the old packages.
They don't seem to be needed anymore. So i can just remove them.
Fixed in 2.3-3
