Description Enrico Scholz 2002-08-16 10:37:49 EDT
Description of Problem:

When having /usr shared between some hosts, the installation of glibc-common
fails in a %post scriptlet which results in multiple install glibc-common packages:

| $ rpm -U glibc-common-2.2.90-21.i386.rpm
| /usr/sbin/build-locale-archive: cannot open locale archive
"/usr/lib/locale/locale-archive": Read-only file system
| Fehler: execution of %post scriptlet from glibc-common-2.2.90-21 failed, exit
status 1
| $ rpm -q glibc-common
| glibc-common-2.2.90-17
| glibc-common-2.2.90-21

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


Steps to Reproduce:
1. setup system so that /usr is NFS-mounted (ro)
2. add /usr to rpm's %_netsharepath
3. try to install glibc-common
Comment 1 Enrico Scholz 2002-08-28 05:36:16 EDT
Still in glibc-common-2.2.90-26
Comment 2 Jakub Jelinek 2003-08-05 12:07:18 EDT
Should be fixed in glibc-2.2.91-1 and later.
