Description of problem:
The netdump config file is a sample, and changes are required to get netdump to work. But when the config is modified and noReplaceConfig is enabled for up2date, it will not be updated.
When noReplaceConfig is enabled, netdump should still be allowed to update and the config file should not be overwritten (much like the behavior of up2date itself). This equates to building the netdump package with %config(noreplace) in the spec file.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.load up RHEL4 distro
2.cause kernel panic
3.take a netdump
Actual Results: When noReplaceConfig is enabled, netdump didn't allowed to update and the config file got overwritten
Expected Results: When noReplaceConfig is enabled, netdump should still be allowed to update and the config file should not be overwritten.
