Description Joe Keller 2005-04-15 21:22:38 UTC
Description of problem:

When backing out nfs-utils-1.0.6-33EL to nfs-utils-1.0.1-3.9, the %postun 
scriptlet exits with a 1 failing the backout.  The postun for this RPM is
if [ "$1" -ge 1 ]; then
        /etc/rc.d/init.d/nfs condrestart > /dev/null

and the problem is the condrestart does not exist in version 1.0.1-3.9 so if 
you run the command by hand you'll see:

# /etc/rc.d/init.d/nfs condrestart
Usage: nfs {start|stop|status|restart|reload}

Since this call is failing that is the value being returned from the 
scriptlet.  Later versions of the nfs-utils RPM have added additional rc script 
calls (rpcidmapd and rpcgssd) so it would appear the return code from these 
calls are not relevant to the exit code from the scriptlet.  A simple solution 
is to always return 0 (patch provided).

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1.back out RPM
Actual results:

error: %postun(nfs-utils-1.0.6-33EL) scriptlet failed, exit status 1
error: Erase failed failed in rpmpsmStage().

Expected results:

No error
