Description Jonathan Kamens 2009-01-06 09:46:05 EST
dhcpd won't start after upgrading to dhcp package in rawhide. Changelog says dhcpd.conf moved from /etc to /etc/dhcp, but my dhcpd.conf was not renamed as part of the upgrade; it should have been. Even after renaming it, dhcpd still won't start, because /etc/init.d/dhcpd is looking in the old location.

Is this fixed with dhcp-4.1.0-1.fc11 in rawhide? Sorry about the incomplete change to the new config file location. I was wanting to locate all config files for dhcp in one subdirectory in /etc since the number of files you could have just for dhcp could be a large number. That and I've got dhclient-script plugins coming.
Comment 2 Jonathan Kamens 2009-01-09 13:57:42 EST
No, this is not fixed. The spec file still has dhcpd.conf in /etc rather than /etc/dhcp. You need to move it into /etc/dhcp, and you need to make sure that it is marked %config(noreplace). The postinstall script moves /etc/dhcpd.conf to /etc/dhcp/dhcpd.conf if the former exists, but it also needs to check if the latter does *not* exist, and only do the move if it doesn't. It makes no sense to me that the postinstall script uses cp -a and then rm -f to move dhcpd.conf, rather than just using mv -f. You need to change the path to dhcpd.conf in the config: line in the comment at the top of the init script.
Comment 3 Jonathan Kamens 2009-01-11 10:10:15 EST
This: if [ -f /etc/dhcpd.conf ] -a [ ! -f /etc/dhcp/dhcpd.conf ]; then is a syntax error. It should be this: if [ -f /etc/dhcpd.conf -a ! -f /etc/dhcp/dhcpd.conf ]; then
Comment 4 David Cantrell 2009-01-11 15:17:43 EST
Wow, that's embarrassing. The spec file I have local does not match what I actually built. Sorry about that. New one built.
Comment 5 Jonathan Kamens 2009-01-13 09:17:10 EST
config: line in /etc/rc.d/init.d/dhcpd in 4.1.0-3.fc11 still says /etc/dhcpd.conf when it should say /etc/dhcp/dhcpd.conf.

Seriously, I must be completely incapable of working with shell scripts. Ask me to hack C or Python all day and I can do that. For some reason, I forget things in shell. Really, I'm just doing this for your amusement because at the Fedora Project, your entertainment comes first. Building dhcp-4.1.0-4.fc11.
