Description Bishop Clark 2003-03-20 09:38:27 UTC
Description of problem:
Upgrade of glibc packages via rpm -Fvh causes this output:


Preparing...                ########################################### [100%]
   1:glibc-common           ########################################### [ 25%]
   2:glibc                  ########################################### [ 50%]
chmod: getting attributes of `/var/ftp/lib/libs.md5': Not a directory

/sbin/ldconfig: Can't open configuration file /etc/ld.so.conf: No such file or
directory
/sbin/ldconfig: Can't create temporary cache file /etc/ld.so.cache~: No such
file or directory
error: execution of %trigger scriptlet from anonftp-4.0-9 failed, exit status 1
   3:glibc-devel            ########################################### [ 75%]
   4:nscd                   ########################################### [100%]

Consequently, the rpm-Fvh of glibc main package will report a FAILURE, and one's
RPMdb will have duplicate glibc package entries - NOT something one wants to
mess about with.

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

glibc-2.2.5-42
glibc-2.2.5-43
anonftp-4.0-9

How reproducible:

At least once.  I'm not doing this anywhere else, as I don't have any more
servers I'll risk potentially hosing.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -i anonftp-4.0-9*rpm
2. rpm -Fvh glibc-*2.2.5-43*rpm
3.
    
Actual results:
as above

Expected results:

Preparing...                ########################################### [100%]
   1:glibc-common           ########################################### [ 25%]
   2:glibc                  ########################################### [ 50%]
   3:glibc-devel            ########################################### [ 75%]
   4:nscd                   ########################################### [100%]
