Comment 1 Alexander Larsson 2002-08-08 11:16:18 EDT
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
if not.

And add --notriggers to erase the old packages.
Comment 3 Alexander Larsson 2002-08-08 11:40:45 EDT
They don't seem to be needed anymore. So i can just remove them.

Fixed in 2.3-3
