Description Jay Fenlason 2006-11-10 10:55:27 EST
Description of problem: 
On my rawhide box, I built a new rpm of xinetd (new upstream release) and 
installed it for some unit testing.  Here's a cut-n-paste of my terminal 
[root@fenlason-rhide devel]# rpm -Fv i386/rsync-2.6.9-2.i386.rpm  
Preparing packages for installation... 
warning: /etc/xinetd.d/rsync saved as /etc/xinetd.d/rsync.rpmsave 
[root@fenlason-rhide devel]# cd /etc/xinetd.d 
[root@fenlason-rhide xinetd.d]# ls 
amanda          cvs             echo-stream   kshell         swat 
amandaidx       daytime-dgram   eklogin       ktalk          tcpmux-server 
amidxtape       daytime-stream  ekrb5-telnet  rexec          telnet 
chargen-dgram   discard-dgram   gssftp        rlogin         tftp 
chargen-stream  discard-stream  klogin        rsh            time-dgram 
cups-lpd        echo-dgram      krb5-telnet   rsync.rpmsave  time-stream 
[root@fenlason-rhide xinetd.d]# cd /local/home/hack/rsync/devel 
[root@fenlason-rhide devel]# rpm2cpio < i386/rsync-2.6.9-2.i386.rpm | cpio -t 
Note that /etc/xinetd.d/rsync is in the rpm, but after the upgrade it is 
missing from /etc/xinetd.d 
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 
How reproducible: 
Steps to Reproduce: 
Actual results: 
As described above 
Expected results: 
All files included in the rpm get installed 
Additional info: 
I believe this bug may be responsible for my mysteriously missing /etc/inittab 
the other day too.
