Description Davide Moretti 2003-10-09 16:54:12 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1) Gecko/20031008

Description of problem:
Since the file /var/run/prelink.full is deleted by rc init script at system
startup, prelink state information is not maintained during reboots so prelink
always does a full prelink the next time is run after the system is rebooted.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. reboot :)

Actual Results:  the file /var/run/prelink.full is deleted

Expected Results:  it should be skipped during /var/run initial cleanup or
placed in another directory.

Additional info:
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2003-10-09 17:15:27 EDT
Using either /var/lib/misc/, or creating a /var/lib/prelink/ dir and using that
should be ok.
Comment 2 Jakub Jelinek 2003-10-09 18:28:58 EDT
Should be fixed in prelink-0.3.0-8.
