Description Göran Uddeborg 2004-10-12 11:35:04 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; sv-SE; rv:1.7.2)

Description of problem:
In /sbin/start_udev, on line 24, there is a test

   [ ! -d $sysfs_dir/class ] || exit 1

Unless sysfs_dir is imported in the environment, the semantics of this
line is to exit if there does exist a directory /class.  Probably that
is seldom the case.

Later on, on line 33, the variable used above is set


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.mkdir /class

(I haven't actually run this.  I found this during a "code inspection".)

Additional info:

Presumably, the variable settings should be done before the tests, and
this particular test should be inverted. 

   [ -d $sysfs_dir/class ] || exit 1
