Description of problem:
In FC1, I had installed postfix from a tarball, not by RPM. I made an own
startscript for postfix in /etc/rc5.d. When upgrading to FC2, the
/etc/rc5.d entry for postfix was removed for unknown reasons.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install postfix tarball in FC1, make an /etc/rc5.d entry
2.Upgrade to FC2
Actual Results: /etc/rc5.d/*postfix will be removed.
Expected Results: etc/rc5.d/*postfix will be preserved
Are you installing the postfix rpm?
No - by a tarball
Then this is no postfix rpm problem. Assigning to initscripts, because
/etc/rc.d/init.d belongs to initscripts.
Was the new postfix RPM installed?
Did you change the layout of /etc/ at all? (make symlinks into
NO! What I made was:
ln -s /etc/init.d/postfix /etc/rc5.d/S98postfix
There's nothing in the initscripts that touches files in /etc/rc5.d.
Can you reproduce this at will?
I don't think the original submitter confirmed whether postfix RPM
ended up being installed after the upgrade?
If 'no, it wasn't installed', then I'd start digging at this from
chkconfig package, i.e., whether it would have been doing some
clean-up in rcX.d directories...
