Description john bray 2010-02-22 14:01:11 EST
Description of problem:udev creates symbolic links in /usr/bin to udevadm in ../sbin/udevadm  but udev adm is in /sbin, not /usr/sbin


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
udev-145-15.fc12

How reproducible:
i presume on every install/upgrade.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. ls -l /usr/bin/udevinfo  or udevtest
2.
3.
  
Actual results:
lsl /usr/bin/udev*
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 15 2010-02-13 02:44 /usr/bin/udevinfo -> ../sbin/udevadm
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 15 2010-02-13 02:44 /usr/bin/udevtest -> ../sbin/udevadm


Expected results:
lsl /usr/bin/udev*
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 15 2010-02-13 02:44 /usr/bin/udevinfo -> /sbin/udevadm
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 15 2010-02-13 02:44 /usr/bin/udevtest -> /sbin/udevadm


Additional info:

note the additional symbolic links in /sbin, which are sort of silly, but not harmful:

lsl /sbin/udev*
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root   15 2010-02-13 02:44 /sbin/udevcontrol -> ../sbin/udevadm
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root   15 2010-02-13 02:44 /sbin/udevsettle -> ../sbin/udevadm
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root   15 2010-02-13 02:44 /sbin/udevtrigger -> ../sbin/udevadm
