#321 closed defect (fixed)

os2-rpm 1-3 symlink change renders some packages unable to install

Reported by: lewisr Owned by:
Priority: Feedback Pending Milestone:
Component: spec files Version:
Severity: highest Keywords:


I just updated the i686 and pentium4 bootstrap zips, and after a test install of an ArcaOS trunk build, I find that libqt4 will not install, complaining that the PREIN scriptlet cannot find /@unixroot/usr/lib/rpm/warpin-conflicts.exe.

These symlinks were apparently changed in os2-rpm 1-3 to not have extensions. Unfortunately, it seems that some packages are still looking for them.

Copying /@unixroot/usr/lib/rpm/warpin-conflicts to /@unixroot/usr/lib/rpm/warpin-conflicts.exe allows the installation of libqt4 to complete successfully.

While the ultimate fix is in the spec files for the affected packages, it may be wise to maintain two symlinks for each of these or create a separate package to install/remove the additional (missing) symlinks.
