Description Chris Siebenmann 1999-02-15 06:22:34 UTC
chkconfig --del deletes not just the named service, but
all services that have the name as a prefix. Eg, if you
do 'chkconfig --del nfs' and have nfsfs configured on as
well, the --del will delete *both* nfs and nfsfs. No such
bug exists in 'chkconfig --add'.

 This bug can have the obvious deleterious effect.

Example:
bash# chkconfig --list nfs; chkconfig --list nfsfs
nfs 0:off 1:off 2:off 3:on 4:on 5:on 6:off
nfsfs 0:off 1:off 2:off 3:on 4:on 5:on 6:off
bash# chkconfig --del nfs
bash# chkconfig --list nfs; chkconfig --list nfsfs
nfs 0:off 1:off 2:off 3:off 4:off 5:off 6:off
nfsfs 0:off 1:off 2:off 3:off 4:off 5:off 6:off
bash# chkconfig --add nfs
bash# chkconfig --list nfs; chkconfig --list nfsfs
nfs 0:off 1:off 2:off 3:on 4:on 5:on 6:off
nfsfs 0:off 1:off 2:off 3:off 4:off 5:off 6:off
bash# chkconfig --add nfsfs
bash# chkconfig --list nfs; chkconfig --list nfsfs
nfs 0:off 1:off 2:off 3:on 4:on 5:on 6:off
nfsfs 0:off 1:off 2:off 3:on 4:on 5:on 6:off

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 1999-03-22 23:22:59 UTC
fixed in chkconfig-1.0.2 (and possibly earlier)

Comment 2 Chris Siebenmann 1999-03-22 23:45:59 UTC
I have built and tested a version of chkconfi 1.0.2 (from Starbuck)
on my RedHat 5.1 system (plain, with rpm --rebuild of the .src.rpm),
and this problem is *not* fixed. To fix the problem, you need to not
glob with '%s*' in findServiceEntries() in leveldb.c, per the patch
I emailed in.

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 1999-03-23 00:13:59 UTC
doh!

fixed in chkconfig-1.0.3-1. Thanks!
