Description Michel Alexandre Salim 2007-03-02 05:08:33 UTC
Description of problem:
hicolor-icon-theme contains /usr/share/icons/hicolor/icon-theme.cache, which
should be generated post-install. I only noticed this because it caused a
conflict with banshee-0.11.5-1.fc7, which also erroneously includes this

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install banshee and hicolor-icon-theme
Actual results:
Once one is installed, the other won't install because of a conflict over the file

Expected results:
Neither should contain cache file

Comment 2 David Zeuthen 2007-03-02 17:33:25 UTC
Actually, this is by design because 

 a) someone has gotta own the cache file so it goes away
    when hicolor-icon-theme is uninstalled

 b) we only touch the cache file in %install (so we can own the file) 
    and it's regenerated in %post

 c) this is a good way to spot bugs like bug 230684
