Re: RPM installation order

I'm looking into a gcl bug (I maintain gcl):
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=541050.

The problem appears to be that the order of RPM installation is
unpredictable.  There is a subpackage, gcl-selinux, which provides
policy files for use by other packages that build executables with
gcl.  That package installs a policy, gcl.pp, and then does this in
%post:

/usr/sbin/semodule -i %{_datadir}/selinux/packages/gcl/gcl.pp || :
/sbin/fixfiles -R gcl restore || :

This works great when the main gcl package is installed first,
followed by the gcl-selinux package.  However, sometimes RPM installs
them in the other order.

Umm, I checked F-12 gcl.spec and there is no such Requires relation
between two packages (i.e. -selinux subpackage does not have
"Requires: %{name} = %{version}-%{release}" or so), so it is natural
that the order is inpredictable.
