RHEL-3 up2date creates rpm -v clutter
Last modified: 2014-03-30 21:38:00 EDT
Description of problem:
This is a duplicate ticket of bz#69205. A customer has noted that when up2date
runs, it recompiles its pyc files, and as such rpm -v reports them as modified.
This has been corrected in FC-2 forward, and the customer would like the fix
backported to RHEL-3
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install up2date
2. run up2date
3. run rpm -v up2date
up2date modifies its pyc file, and rpm reports the change
up2date should avoid recompiling these files.
Created attachment 112653 [details]
patch of fc-2 spec file change to prevent up2date from recompiling pyc files after install
u6 will get up2date 4.4.x, which solves this issues
This bug is considered MustFix for RHEL 3 U6 by RHN Engineering.
Dev & PM ACKs for U6
Retested against up2date-4.4.23-3:
[root@test07 root]# rpm -q up2date
[root@test07 root]# up2date -uf

[root@test07 root]# rpm -Vf /usr/bin/up2date
SM5....T c /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date
S.5....T c /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date-uuid
(/etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources is missing ... bug 162071)
This shows that the up2date config files were changed. This is ok, right? I
don't have output stating what this should look like ... and since
/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/up2date.pyc is not in the rpm -Vf output, this bug
is probably fixed. But I need confirmation that this output is correct.
This looks good indeed.
thanks, moving to PROD_READY
