Description Ziga Mahkovec 2005-05-15 15:12:18 EDT
Description of problem:
iptraf stores its configuration file in /var/run/iptraf/iptraf.cfg.  FHS issues
aside, this means that all configuration changes will be lost upon the next
reboot (since most files in /var/run are removed by rc.sysinit).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
iptraf-2.7.0-13

How reproducible:
always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start iptraf and change configuration.
2. Reboot.
3. Start iptraf again.
  
Actual results:
All configuration changes are lost.

Expected results:
The configuration changes should be preserved.

Additional info:
I'm attaching a patch against the package in CVS.  It moves the configuration
file to /etc/iptraf.cfg and updates the spec file and the existing documentation
patch.
