Description of problem:
GFS install all userland utilities, properly, in /sbin, which facilitates making a SSI, including using a GFS root filesystem, except that lock_gulmd is dynamically linked against /usr/lib/libwrap.so.0. Thhis requires a extrange contraption in case /usr will be located (as usual) in a differente partition, that, in case of SSI could also be stored in GFS, if it were not for this dependecy, that creates a chicken and egg situation.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual Results: libwrap.so.0 => /usr/lib/libwrap.so.0 (0x0059e000)
Thus preventing a smooth transition to a single system image
Expected Results: Either lock_gulmd should not be linked against libwrap, libwrap should be statically linked into lock_gulmd or libwrap should be insalled to /lib (least desirable IMO)
the calls to libwrap have been in a dead code path for a couple releases now, so
there isn't really any sense in keeping it. So removed libwrab from gulm.
This bugzilla should be resolved with the current packages from RHN for Red Hat Global File System for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.
