Description Sepp Rudel 2003-05-12 16:39:25 UTC
Description of problem:
While I was updating from RHL7.3->RHL9 with apt (yea, I know, not supported by
RH, but read on...), fontilus gave following error:

  60:fontilus               ########################################### [  9%]
/var/tmp/rpm-tmp.38771: line 1: gconftool-2: command not found
/var/tmp/rpm-tmp.38771: line 2: gconftool-2: command not found
error: execution of %post scriptlet from fontilus-0.3-4 failed, exit status 127

Probably caused by the fact that also RPM containing gconftool-2 was about to be
updated after fontilus during the same "rpm -Uvh" run. This caused fontilus to
be misconfigured. This might well happen also with up2date/rpm -Fvh/yum/etc.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
All, I presume.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.update fontilus and RPMs containing gconftool-2 in the same run

Actual results:
error messages are shown.

Expected results:
no errors printed.

Additional info:
Probably not critical but worth fixing IMHO.

It needs a prereq on gconf2. But the fontilus package will soon be removed since
its integrated with control center anyway.
