Re: Doing a preinstallation check

Hi Joe,

Normally, any checks or conditions that you test inside the preinstall script is before installation. So, this would not further continue the installation if the check or conditions are not met. I think in my opnion the check is appropriate inside the preinstall script of your RPM package.

Joe Van Dyk said the following on 7/26/2006 3:01 PM:


Say I want to run a command before installing an RPM.  If the command
fails, the RPM should not install.  If I was installing multiple RPMs
at the same time and that command inside that RPM failed, none of the
RPMs would install.

Is that an appropriate use of the %preinstall (or is is %pre) section?

Failure is not acceptable. It comes bundled with Windows.
