Description Paul Howarth 2008-08-08 04:53:47 EDT
Description of problem:
After upgrading bacula packages to 2.2.8-2.fc9, the alternatives settings to select the backend (mysql in my case) are lost and there is no /usr/sbin/bacula-dir link left, so a "service bacula-dir restart" fails.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
2.2.8-2.fc9

How reproducible:
Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install original 2.0.3-13.fc9 bacula packages for storage and/or director
2. Upgrade these packages to 2.2.8-2.fc9
  
Actual results:
# alternatives --display bacula-sd
# alternatives --display bacula-dir
(i.e. no output)

Expected results:
# alternatives --display bacula-sd
bacula-sd - status is auto.
 link currently points to /usr/sbin/bcopy.mysql
/usr/sbin/bcopy.mysql - priority 50
 slave bacula-bscan: /usr/sbin/bscan.mysql
Current `best' version is /usr/sbin/bcopy.mysql.
# alternatives --display bacula-dir
bacula-dir - status is auto.
 link currently points to /usr/sbin/bacula-dir.mysql
/usr/sbin/bacula-dir.mysql - priority 50
 slave bacula-dbcheck: /usr/sbin/dbcheck.mysql
 slave create_bacula_database: /usr/libexec/bacula/create_bacula_database.mysql
 slave drop_bacula_database: /usr/libexec/bacula/drop_bacula_database.mysql
 slave drop_bacula_tables: /usr/libexec/bacula/drop_bacula_tables.mysql
 slave grant_bacula_privileges: /usr/libexec/bacula/grant_bacula_privileges.mysql
 slave make_bacula_tables: /usr/libexec/bacula/make_bacula_tables.mysql
 slave make_catalog_backup: /usr/libexec/bacula/make_catalog_backup.mysql
 slave update_bacula_tables: /usr/libexec/bacula/update_bacula_tables.mysql
Current `best' version is /usr/sbin/bacula-dir.mysql.


Additional info:
This problem can be worked around by running the %post scripts for bacula-storage-mysql and bacula-director-mysql manually:

# /usr/sbin/alternatives --install /usr/sbin/bcopy bacula-sd /usr/sbin/bcopy.mysql 50 \
	--slave /usr/sbin/dbcheck bacula-bscan /usr/sbin/bscan.mysql
# /usr/sbin/alternatives --install /usr/sbin/bacula-dir bacula-dir /usr/sbin/bacula-dir.mysql 50 \
	--slave /usr/sbin/dbcheck bacula-dbcheck /usr/sbin/dbcheck.mysql \
	--slave /usr/libexec/bacula/create_bacula_database create_bacula_database /usr/libexec/bacula/create_bacula_database.mysql \
	--slave /usr/libexec/bacula/drop_bacula_database drop_bacula_database /usr/libexec/bacula/drop_bacula_database.mysql \
	--slave /usr/libexec/bacula/drop_bacula_tables drop_bacula_tables /usr/libexec/bacula/drop_bacula_tables.mysql \
	--slave /usr/libexec/bacula/grant_bacula_privileges grant_bacula_privileges /usr/libexec/bacula/grant_bacula_privileges.mysql \
	--slave /usr/libexec/bacula/make_bacula_tables make_bacula_tables /usr/libexec/bacula/make_bacula_tables.mysql \
	--slave /usr/libexec/bacula/make_catalog_backup make_catalog_backup /usr/libexec/bacula/make_catalog_backup.mysql \
	--slave /usr/libexec/bacula/update_bacula_tables update_bacula_tables /usr/libexec/bacula/update_bacula_tables.mysql


The cause of the problem is that the "alternatives --remove" invocations in the %preun scripts are unconditional rather than applying only on package removal. They should be wrapped in a "if [ $1 = 0 ]" clause, e.g.

if [ $1 = 0 ]; then
  /usr/sbin/alternatives --remove ...
fi

(note that %preun runs *after* %post on package upgrades - see http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/ScriptletSnippets)
