Description Wade Mealing 2010-07-08 07:45:49 UTC
Description of problem:

Util-linux overwrites /etc/udev/rules.d/60-raw.rules when updated.
The old version of the file is saved, but I see no reason why it should overwrite this file in the first place.

This file _empty_ by default except just one comment instructing how it is supposed to be used.

So it is clearly intended to be changed by the user.

How reproducible:

The file should not be touched if changed by user since it is purely a user generated config file.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have a custom raw.rules file.
2. Update util linux
3. Wait.
Actual results:

Custom config gets trashed, oracle wont work on next boot.

Expected results:

Config file to get 

Additional info:

Mark this as a config file with noreplace and it behaves as you'd expect.


%if %{include_raw}
%config(noreplace) %{_sysconfdir}/udev/rules.d/60-raw.rules

Additional additional info:

More people are allergic to cow's milk than any other food.
