Description Moritz Barsnick 2000-12-10 16:35:24 EST
For some reason, at-3.1.8-12 requires /etc/init.d:

root@sunshine:/usr/new/RedHat/7.x # rpm -Uvh at-3.1.8-12.i386.rpm
error: failed dependencies:
        /etc/init.d   is needed by at-3.1.8-12

Yet /etc/init.d has been (re-)abandoned for /etc/rc.d/init.d.
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2000-12-11 01:25:22 EST
/etc/init.d has not been re-abandoned. It just requires significant RPM
hoop-jumping to make the switch cleanly.

It requires it because the init script sources /etc/init.d/functions.
Comment 2 Moritz Barsnick 2000-12-11 04:09:12 EST
Sorry, I wasn't aware that I had to jump through the chkconfig hoop, where
./etc/init.d -> rc.d/init.d
is provided.  ;->
