Description of problem:
This bug is a duplicate of 123833, but I have no idea how to let
the bug system know that it affects RHEL as well.
The fix noted in that bug also fixes it under the version
provided in RHEL.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to rdist a symlink
Actual Results: laid: REMOTE ERROR: /usr/local/bin/rdistIQu9Mm ->
/opt/tetex/2.0.2/bin/outocp: symlink failed: File exists
Created attachment 100513 [details]
Patch from bug #123833
Run from rdist-6.1.5 directory, patch -Np1 < symlink.patch
Should fix the problem.

Phil, why was this closed as a duplicate and not the other way around?
Shouldn't the bug report filed at the later date be closed as a
duplicate of the earlier bug report?
