No problem with other packages (tried gsoap immediately after - both install and uninstall worked fine)

Also get the same error if I try to YUM REMOVE libvncserver. ANPM says 'Package cannot be uninstalled or no package selected'.

I downgraded rpm from version 4.13 to version 4.8 and now I can install libvncserver. Maybe this problem is related to issue #172.

The following spec sequence


is calling rpmExtScript() in rpmscript.c with NULL for script parameter. This is probably an upstream bug, I doubt original code can handle this situation too.

rpm: do not try to start NULL scripts. fixes ticket#178.
Committed revision r693.
