Description Steve Conklin 2006-12-14 17:30:30 UTC
When running sosreport, the pam plugin reports the following error:

problem at path /etc/alternatives/mta-pam/

Also, the error is not followed by a line return.

Comment 1 Steve Conklin 2006-12-18 15:34:18 UTC
This was a more general problem. The message occurred if a file was linked as
the destination of more than one link that was copied by sosreport. In second
and subsequent copy attempts, this message was printed.

This message is no longer printed in the case that copy failure occurs because
the file has already been copied.
