I just installed R-hdf5 and received this error message from the postscript:

error: %post(R-hdf5-1.6.6-1.el5.x86_64) scriptlet failed, exit status 1


  I also can't uninstall the rpm without using the --noscripts option
because of the samepostscript error. The postscripts are listed below:

[root n1 ~]# rpm -q --scripts R-hdf5
postinstall scriptlet (using /bin/sh):
cat /usr/lib64/R/library/*/CONTENTS>  /usr/lib64/R/doc/html/search/index.txt
postuninstall scriptlet (using /bin/sh):
cat /usr/lib64/R/library/*/CONTENTS>  /usr/lib64/R/doc/html/search/index.txt

It appears that /usr/lib64/R/doc doesn't exist- hence the errors.

After looking at a few other R "plugins" I saw that they use
/usr/lib/rpm/R-make-search-index.sh in the post scripts which seems to
perform the same function as the current postscripts in R-hdf5 but
among other things, uses existing paths.

Note that R modules use rpm macros for the post scripts that are resolved at rpm build time:

%post
%{_R_make_search_index}

Looks like this changed at some point. May just be time to rebuild some of the older R modules in EPEL. I'll take a look.
