linux-xxxx:/home/barravince # rpm -e hipo-0.5-6.1
/var/tmp/rpm-tmp.42486: line 1: fg: no job control

This usually indicates that a macro isn't available.

error: %postun(hipo-0.5-6.1.i586) scriptlet failed, exit status 1

As it says, the commands listed under %postun failed.

What can it be?

%postun
%clean_icon_cache hicolor

Find out where this macro is defined and either remove the %postun
altogether or make shure your package requires the package providing that
macro.

BTW, there's a few nits I have with the package:

%define name hipo
%define version 0.5

This isn't needed as these are defined by these entries:

Name: hipo
Version: 0.5

Group: Sound

This isn't a valid RPM group for openSUSE. Please check
http://forge.novell.com/modules/xfcontent/private.php/library/SUSE%20Package%20Conventions/spc.pdf
for possible groups.

----------------------

%build
./configure --prefix=%_prefix --libdir=%_prefix/lib

What is installed in %_prefix/lib ? If any of these is architecture
dependent, i.e. a binary file, it belongs in %_libdir (i.e. prefix/lib for
i586 and prefix/lib64 for x86-64).

----------------------

%install
rm -rf $RPM_BUILD_ROOT

Either don't do this at all and rely on the build system to clean up things
or add a 'mkdir $BUILD_ROOT' (without the -p option!) directly afterwards.
