mingw32-gettext and mingw64-gettext erroneously share message catalogs
Last modified: 2012-07-24 19:27:21 EDT
Description of problem:
The mingw64-gettext and mingw32-gettext packages erroneously share all message catalog files under /usr/x86_64-w64-mingw32/sys-root/mingw/share/locale as well as under /usr/i686-w64-mingw32/sys-root/mingw/share/locale. All the files under both paths are in both packages.
This had a bad side-effect when I upgraded from F16 to F17 on one of my machines. I had the F16 mingw32 packages installed. Preupgrade downloaded all equivalent mingw32 packages from F17. After reboot, while the installer was trying to install the mingw32-gettext package, the installer failed with an error message along the lines of
Error installing /usr/x86_64-w64-mingw32/sys-root/mingw/share/locale/be/LC_MESSAGES/gettext-runtime.mo: No such directory
Please note that this is from memory, I didn't find the exact text ot the message in any log file. After that, the installer's only possible action was to exit
and drop the user off in a root shell.
