[opensuse-buildservice] FreeCol fails on 10.1 (at pre-installation stage)
  • From: "Dominique Leuenberger" <Dominique.Leuenberger@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>

this one goes a bit beyond me, so I ask for your professional help.
As logged at
the package building for FreeCol failed (for SUSE Linux 10.1).

From the Log:
installing xerces-j2-2.7.1-15
/var/tmp/rpm-tmp.57814: line 1: /usr/sbin/update-alternatives: No such file or
/var/tmp/rpm-tmp.57814: line 2: /usr/sbin/update-alternatives: No such file or

mount: can't find / in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab
/bin/bash: halt: command not found
Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!

I think I can 'work around' by including as a BuildRequires:
/usr/sbin/update-alternatives, but actually this would be a bug in xerces-j2
Do we decide to fix such things on OBS Level (like having a substitute for
xeces2-j2) or shall I just fix it in my spec file?
