Description of problem:
-----------------------
This bug report is intended as a placeholder to store patches for
inclusion in future releases of initscripts.

Currently, I've got one patch against initscripts to fix a warning
during boot when trying to remove lock files for VMWare.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
7.44-1

How reproducible:
As long as initscripts is mantained

Steps to Reproduce:
N/A
  
Actual results:
N/A

Expected results:
N/A

Additional info:
Until a CVS server is available for us, I think we should keep track
of patches and ideas under this bug entry. However, if I'm wrong,
please feel free to close this bug report.

Fix warning when trying to remove VMware lock files

This fixes the warning that is shown during boot when rc.sysinit tries to
remove VMware lock files. However, VMware organizes locks by user, then by PID
and thus, what we're trying to remove is a directory and not a file.

For example:

/var/run/vmware
    |
    --- user1
	|
	--- 12345

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2004-01-30 22:08:01 UTC
Why not add the 'Patch' keyword to such bugs instead?

Comment 3 Felipe Alfaro Solana 2004-01-30 22:18:12 UTC
Better now? 

Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2004-01-30 22:20:33 UTC
No, what I'm saying is rather than have one placeholder bug which can
never be closed, to just add the patch *keyword* (see:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/describekeywords.cgi) to each bug
that has a patch.

Bug #110265 seems to be a duplicate of this one (or the other way round).

Changed to 'CLOSED' state since 'RESOLVED' has been deprecated.
