Description Zbigniew Jędrzejewski-Szmek 2014-06-22 19:17:36 UTC
Description of problem:
When screen package is installed, screen command fails because /run/screen is not available. screen.rpm has a systemd-tmpfiles snippet, but it will only get run on next reboot.

To fix:
%tmpfiles_create %_tmpfilesdir/screen.conf

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

The snippet should look like:
%tmpfiles_create screen.conf

(Using just the basename allows the administorator to potentially override the file in /lib with a file in /etc.)

Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2014-06-23 12:00:25 UTC
Another (imho better) option: if screen package owned /var/run/screen itself, it would get created on initial install by rpm

Double-checking that is already the case, *except* for the unfortunate use of %ghost here:

%ghost %attr(755,root,root) %{_localstatedir}/run/screen

I'd suggest removing %ghost instead.
