Description Corinna Vinschen 2012-07-22 13:58:18 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.

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