Description of problem:
I have a Red Hat Linux 7.3 system with updated glibc and gcc packages from Red
Hat Linux 8.0.
Installing libgcj-3.2.1-2.i386.rpm gives the following error message:
install-info: menu item `grepjar' already exists, for file `(none)'
error: execution of %post scriptlet from libgcj-3.2.1-2 failed, exit status 1
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.rpm -Uvh libgcj-3.2.1-2.i386.rpm
It is actually a bug in libgcj-3.2.1-1.i386.rpm, fixed in 3.2.1-2.
You need to undo the damage manually though (edit /usr/share/i18n/dir).
As libgcj-3.2.1-1 only appeared in rawhide, I don't think I need to add
sed garbage to libgcj's %post.
I think you mean to delete the grepjar and jar lines from /usr/share/info/dir
after uninstalling libgcj.
Either that, or while libgcj is still installed change jar to jar(fastjar)
and grepjar to grepjar(fastjar).
