I've also rebuilt from the src.rpm. Same result. Looked at the spec file. Nothing odd.

Am I missing some magic handshake?




What's /usr/bin/magicdev on your system?

$ ls -l /usr/bin/magicdev

And what is it in the rpm?

$ rpm -qlpv gnome-volume-manager-1.5.11-1.2.x86_64.rpm | grep
-F /usr/bin/magicdev

Paul.


 ls -l /usr/bin/magicdev
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 Feb 26  2003 /usr/bin/magicdev

rpm -qlpv gnome-volume-manager-1.5.11-1.2.x86_64.rpm | grep -F /usr/bin/magicdev -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 262 Feb 13 22:32 /usr/bin/magicdev


Curious; it seems to be just a regular file in both cases. This problem usually manifests itself when one is a file and the other is a directory. Can you try removing or renaming /usr/bin/magicdev before installing the RPM?

Paul.


Really curious. Look:

[root amd64-3000 development]# rpm -qif /usr/bin/magicdev
file /usr/bin/magicdev is not owned by any package
[root amd64-3000 development]# rm -f  /usr/bin/magicdev
rm: cannot remove `/usr/bin/magicdev': Operation not permitted
[root amd64-3000 development]# chmod 777 /usr/bin/magicdev
chmod: changing permissions of `/usr/bin/magicdev': Operation not permitted
[root amd64-3000 development]# mv /usr/bin/magicdev .
mv: cannot move `/usr/bin/magicdev' to `./magicdev': Operation not permitted
