Problem removing: fmt-ptrn-java-1.3.17-1.fc9.i386




I was receiving email log notices that there was
a problem with removing fmt-ptrn-java-1.3.17-1.fc9.i386,
so I attempted to remove it:

# yum remove fmt-ptrn-java-1.3.17-1.fc9.i386

Geez, one might think yum actually removed it, but in this case, it lied.
Trying to pull the ol'e sliparoo on me, ehh? I tried running yum remove
as above again and the same exact removal messages appears again and
again - so, it is NOT removed!  So, I tried another way:

# apt-get --fix-broken install

Ah!  Well at least it is telling me there is a problem in attempting
to remove this package...  Well apt-get cannot remove this package
so, I tried using rpm directly:

# rpm -e fmt-ptrn-java-1.3.17-1.fc9.i386
/sbin/ldconfig: relative path `1' used to build cache
error: %postun(fmt-ptrn-java-1.3.17-1.fc9.i386) scriptlet failed, exit status 1

Three strikes, and I am out!

So, how can I get rid of this package?

Thanks!
Dan
