Description Bryn M. Reeves 2011-09-08 15:01:05 UTC
Description of problem:
usbutils-003-2.el6 moves the lsusb binary from /usr/sbin to /usr/bin:

# rpm -qlp usbutils-0.86-2.el6.x86_64.rpm | grep bin
/usr/bin/usb-devices
/usr/sbin/lsusb

# rpm -qlp usbutils-003-2.el6.x86_64.rpm | grep bin
/usr/bin/lsusb
/usr/bin/lsusb.py
/usr/bin/usb-devices
/usr/bin/usbhid-dump

This breaks distribution & third party scripts that rely on the old location.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
usbutils-003-2.el6

How reproducible:
100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. $ /usr/sbin/lsusb

Actual results:
-bash: /usr/sbin/lsusb: No such file or directory

Expected results:
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
[...]

Additional info:
A symlink to the old location would retain compatibility with the path used in previous RHEL6 updates.
