Description Beth Nackashi 2006-02-06 20:57:18 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #180268 +++

Description of problem:
The TPS rpm --verify tests fail because the /etc/sysconfig/rhn/rhn-applet config
file will always be different from default.  Why?  Because the uuid field gets
populated during the installation process.  The spec file needs to be flagged
with approriate %verify bits so it passes this test.

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

Blocking rhnupr4u4 and rhnupr3u8 to track the progress of the release

Comment 2 Robin Norwood 2006-05-03 21:02:45 UTC
Should be fixed in CVS.

Comment 6 Beth Nackashi 2006-06-02 20:00:31 UTC
Package tested:

Architectures tested:
i386, ia64, x86_64, s390, s390x, ppc

All had a timestamp change on the config file.  Should timestamp be added to the
list of excludes as well?

[root@test01-ia64 tmp]# rpm -V rhn-applet
........C c /etc/sysconfig/rhn/rhn-applet

Comment 7 Beth Nackashi 2006-06-02 20:07:56 UTC
Hmm.  After further research, I see that this is not timestamp related at all. 
This is some sort of "context" flag.  It means that the context stored in the
file's extended attribute on disk is inconsistent with the file_contexts
configuration.  To fix, run /sbin/restorecon on the file(s) in question.

So, should "context" be added to the list of excludes?  Is that even allowed?

Comment 8 Robin Norwood 2006-06-27 21:58:16 UTC
ok - this has been fixed by adding the following to the %post section:

chcon system_u:object_r:etc_t /etc/sysconfig/rhn/rhn-applet

Comment 9 Beth Nackashi 2006-06-27 22:28:53 UTC
verified on s390, s390x, ppc, ia64, i386, and x86_64 with package

rpm -V now gives empty response

TPS tests *should* pass.  Let's hope so.
