Description Petr Krištof 2005-07-19 07:05:40 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050513 Fedora/1.7.8-1.3.1

Description of problem:
After upgrade from radvd-0.7.3-1_FC4 -> radvd-0.8-1.FC4
radvd stops work.

New radvd is looking for config file in /usr/local/etc/ directory
while right place for config file is /etc directory

I guess the new package was compiled without correct
%configure --sysconfdir= option

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. upgrade to radvd-0.8-1.FC4
2. service radvd restart


Actual Results:  Service fails with error:

Jul 19 12:46:26server radvd[2286]: version 0.8 started
Jul 19 12:46:26 server radvd[2286]: can't open /usr/local/etc/radvd.conf:
No such file or directory

Expected Results:  Service should startup.

Additional info:

Temporary workaround is to modify /etc/sysconfig/radvd to
OPTIONS="-u radvd -C /etc/radvd.conf"
