Comment 1 Vitezslav Crhonek 2021-05-31 08:33:03 UTC
Thank you, reproduced.

The default content of /etc/slp.spi is only commentary, which means that the issue can
be simply workarounded by just creating empty file, for example:
# touch /etc/slp.spi
(No need to copy the file from RHEL 7.)

I don't think that dependency on that file is erroneous, it's expected to be used by both
client/server part of openslp. But it was only shipped with server part and that's a bug.

I'll investigate further.

Comment 2 Vitezslav Crhonek 2021-06-07 12:31:01 UTC
I'd like to fix this by moving /etc/slp.spi from openslp-server to openslp.
