Description Tomáš Hozza 2013-10-08 09:56:27 EDT
Description of problem:
As of Fedora 17, the top level directories /bin and /sbin are just symlinks
to /usr/bin /usr/sbin. However net-tools installs all of its binaries to
those top level directories.

Since we have Fedora 19 already I would expect "yum provides /usr/bin/netstat" to tell me which package provides netstat binary. However because net-tools
installs binaries into top level dirs, this is not possible.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum provides /usr/bin/netstat
2. yum install net-tools && rpm -ql net-tools

Actual results:

Expected results:

Upstream decided some time ago that ifconfig & route should be in /bin instead of /sbin. I've been moving them back to /bin up to now but I think it's time to be in sync with upstream so correct would be:
