post-install script not run on upgrade
|Reported by:||Pete||Owned by:||nobody|
I just recently upgraded to beta1. I needed to run 'man', and it failed because it couldn't find the utilities it needed.
Turned out that 'man.conf' had links pointing through a specific (and wrong!) package version. It had (correctly) not been replaced by the updated version, but the package has a post-install script that is supposed to fix the links. I unpacked the man hpkg, and ran the script manually, and it did exactly as it should. So apparently it was not run when I upgraded.
(I notice that the man.conf in my 4-year old partition also has package-specific links, but they match the version in this case, and in fact there is no post-install script there.)
