Description Michael Schwendt 2003-02-21 12:53:24 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030206

Description of problem:
Fresh install of Phoebe 8.0.94. Wanted to add "gstreamer-devel" and "xmms-devel"
with up2date.

Post-install script in package "gstreamer" fails because package
"gstreamer-tools" is not installed first:

error: %post(gstreamer-0.6.0-4) scriptlet failed, exit status 127

$ rpm -q --qf "%{postin}\n" gstreamer
/sbin/ldconfig
env DISPLAY= /usr/bin/gst-register --gst-mask=0 > /dev/null 2> /dev/null

$ rpm -qf /usr/bin/gst-register 
gstreamer-tools-0.6.0-4

So, gstreamer can only be installed after gstreamer-tools. But up2date did
install in wrong order.

Steps to reproduce:

1. rpm -e gstreamer-devel xmms-devel gstreamer gstreamer-tools
2. up2date gstreamer-devel xmms-devel

Comment 1 Michael Schwendt 2003-02-21 12:55:01 UTC
Could also be a bug in up2date, because "gstreamer" requires "gstreamer-tools".


Comment 2 Michael Schwendt 2003-02-22 18:26:48 UTC
RPM (rpm -ivh *.rpm) installs the packages in the correct order. up2date does not.

Comment 3 Adrian Likins 2003-02-24 19:25:42 UTC
looks like a result of #84891, which should be fixed on 3.1.21

Comment 4 Matt Jamison 2003-05-21 13:15:27 UTC
verified to work with up2date-3.1.23-1
closing bug.
