I've built an RPM using redline rpm library for java. When I try to uninstall the rpm it says it was removed but when I do a list it is still there and says it is still installed.
Here is the results of my uninstall with as much debug as I know how to give it.

I don't see any errors and the files are all still there. Something must have gone wrong because IT DIDN'T WORK! How do I debug this?
EDIT: Additional information: The rpm will uninstall if I use the --noscripts option at uninstall. I tried building the rpm without any scripts and it still doesn't uninstall.
Hopefully you have figured out your problem by now, but the underlying issue is that you have dashes in your version number: 1.0.0-beta-2
redline rpm currently allows you to do this, even though the rpm spec does not allow it. Unfortunately, once an invalid rpm is created, none of the rpm tools give you any way of knowing that, other than strange behavior.
In this case, you should have been able to install the same rpm multiple times without it complaining about there already being an instance installed. And when trying to erase it, it's actually an attempt to run the trigger un and postun scriplets (not the general preun and postun scriptlets that fails almost silent - other than a 255 return code).
Redline should not allow this, and the rpm tool should not attempt to install such an rpm, but that is the current state of things.
