Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 17782
Invalid dependency on /etc/init.d (openldap-1.2.11-11)
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:58 EDT
The 1.2.11-11 SRPM has an explicit prereq for /etc/init.d, but manipulates scripts in /etc/rc.d/init.d. A comment in the changelog dated July 17
2000 says "Move the initscript back" but the prereq was not removed from the spec file.
Question: If I remove the prereq from the spec file, will Bad Things happen?
Answering my own question, yes, the provided init script looks for the functions script in /etc/init.d.
What new package provides /etc/init.d? Has that package been tested on RH6.*?
Ok, this package needs the latest Rawhide initscripts (currently at 5.44), which provides symlinks for /etc/init.d and /etc/rc[0-9].d to support FHS.
