Description Beth Nackashi 2005-09-14 16:29:21 EDT
Description of problem:
up2date config file is subject to size/MD5/timestamp changes so it should be
ignored by rpm -V

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  rpm -V up2date
Actual results:
failures will likely be due to MD5, size, or timestamp change(s) in config file

Expected results:
no failures due to config file changes

Additional info:
Fix might be something like this?
%config(missingok,noreplace) %verify(not md5 size mtime) /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date

not sure .....

Comment 9 Beth Nackashi 2006-05-15 15:17:18 EDT
To view the spec file:
1- copy the source rpm onto the client
2- rpm2cpio up2date-x.x.xx-x.src.rpm |cpio -i -d
3- open up2date.spec
Comment 10 Beth Nackashi 2006-05-15 15:40:46 EDT
Package verified:

The following lines were added to up2date.spec to fix this bug:
%config(noreplace) %verify(not md5 size mtime mode) /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date
%config(noreplace) %verify(not md5 size mtime) /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date-uuid

I have seen a mode failure on my x86_64 box, so I am recommending adding mode to
the up2date-uuid list of excludes.

[root@bnackash-64 tmp]# rpm -V up2date
.M...... c /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date-uuid
Comment 11 Beth Nackashi 2006-06-01 10:48:23 EDT
latest up2date and rhnlib packages:

Comment 12 Beth Nackashi 2006-06-01 13:11:52 EDT
mode has been added to the up2date-uuid list of excludes:

%config(noreplace) %verify(not md5 size mtime mode) /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date
%config(noreplace) %verify(not md5 size mtime mode) /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date-uuid
