Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 235627
up2date clobbers modified files
Last modified: 2007-11-16 20:14:55 EST
Description of problem:
When up2date installed the recent update to mysql (RHSA-2007:0152-01) it replaced the file /etc/
init.d/mysqld even though the file had been modified before running up2date. This change to the file
broke the MySQL installation on the server.
up2date did not create a backup of the file before it was replaced.
up2date did not send any notification.
up2date did not log the change.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
User email@example.com's account has been closed
This is not a bug with up2date. rpm -Uhv would exhibit the same behavior. Only
config files are persisted through an rpm upgrade. Please log this error against
mysql, if you feel that packaging needs modification.
