Comment 1 Harald Hoyer 2004-04-21 10:12:31 EDT
huh? the .pyc files are part of the rpm...

$ rpm -qf /usr/share/system-config-boot/*.pyc

# rpm -e system-config-boot-0.2.5-1
[root@jever root]# ll /usr/share/system-config-boot/
ls: /usr/share/system-config-boot/: File or Directory not found
Comment 2 Robert Scheck 2004-04-21 10:19:45 EDT
Oh sorry you're right, but system-config-boot seems to be an exception, 
because there are other system-* packages where the *.pyc files are
not removed...
