Description Joachim Backes 2004-08-18 10:31:47 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040510

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):

How reproducible:

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

Comment 1 Thomas Woerner 2004-08-19 07:16:32 EDT
Are you installing the postfix rpm?
Comment 2 Joachim Backes 2004-08-19 07:57:16 EDT
No - by a tarball
Comment 3 Joachim Backes 2004-08-19 07:58:05 EDT
No - by a tarball
Comment 4 Thomas Woerner 2004-08-19 08:53:15 EDT
Then this is no postfix rpm problem. Assigning to initscripts, because
/etc/rc.d/init.d belongs to initscripts.
Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2004-08-19 15:19:07 EDT
Was the new postfix RPM installed?

Did you change the layout of /etc/ at all? (make symlinks into
directories, etc.)
Comment 6 Joachim Backes 2004-08-20 00:49:57 EDT
NO! What I made was:

ln -s /etc/init.d/postfix /etc/rc5.d/S98postfix
Comment 7 Bill Nottingham 2004-08-20 12:11:04 EDT
There's nothing in the initscripts that touches files in /etc/rc5.d.

Can you reproduce this at will?
Comment 8 Pekka Savola 2004-10-17 07:06:11 EDT
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...
Comment 9 Matthew Miller 2005-04-26 11:00:25 EDT
Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
