    Default 11.2 texlive 2008 installation error

    Hi,
    I get a strange error when installing texlive 2008;
    I tried via yast & zypper directly but always

    Retrieving package texlive-2008-13.14.1.noarch (1/3), 253.6 MiB (465.5 MiB unpacked)
    Installing: texlive-2008-13.14.1 [error]
    Installation of texlive-2008-13.14.1 failed:
    (with --nodeps --force) Error: Subprocess failed. Error: RPM failed: error: unpacking of archive failed on file /var/lib/texmf/main/ls-R: cpio: rename failed - Is a directory
    Any clues or repositories fix this?

    As you may, or may not see, the rpm tries to unpack an archive. Please post output of:

    su -c 'ls -ld /var/lib/*'

    and

    su -c 'ls -ld /var/lib/texfm/*

    The error says a file needs to be renamed, but it's not a file, but a directory (folder) instead.
