Problem: After an upgrade of the openmpi package the mpi-tools don't work any
more! More specific, the mpi binaries are not anymore in the PATH!

Cause: The %postun scriptlet which "unregisters" the path of the mpi binaries
is run after the %post scriplet which "registers" the path of the mpi binaries.
This is the normal execution order as it is described here [1].

Solution: Check when executing the %post and %postun scriplets if it is an
upgrade, install or uninstall. This can be done by using the arguments
implicitly passed to the scriplets as described in [2] or more precisely in


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. upgrade the openmpi package

Actual Results:
mpi does not work anymore, i.e. the mpi binaries are NOT any more in the PATH

Expected Results:
mpi works, i.e. the mpi binaries are in the PATH

This bug occurs at least in openSUSE 11.4 and 12.1!
