Description Daniel Benamy 2006-10-19 13:18:14 EDT
If hardware info is automatically activated, the resulting IN should be written
to disk (overwriting any existing IN). If any INs are activated from the access
a subscription screen, the most recent one should be written to disk.

r104651 should fix this. I didn't test every possible case though.
Comment 2 Ken Ganong 2006-10-25 15:23:45 EDT

The install-num file is written to disk after it has successfully been
determined to produce entitlements.

Verified as of rhn_register (Red Hat Network Client Tools) 0.3.2-1.el5
