I have good news and bad news.
It seems yum completely ignores the %pre section of the rpm scripting
when installing. This means that if I abort in the %pre section, then
the rest of the packages still get installed - yum just warns about a
This means even though the scriptlet aborts, the installation continues
- meaning you still have orphan DomUs running.
This means the ONLY option is to kill / restart DomUs on installation -
which I'm not very comfortable with.I could create xen43-* packages as a
workaround - which would mean manual intervention - however with Xen 4.4
already being in testing, that would also later on mean xen44-* packages
Thoughts of the list?
