mysql-server uninstall script only removes user mysql
Last modified: 2013-07-02 23:13:38 EDT
Description of problem:
The uninstall script of mysql-server only removes the user mysql although the
install script adds the user + the group mysql.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Uninstall all mysql related things
2. Install all mysql related things
Mysql does not start because of missing user and group mysql.
Mysql should start, the uninstall script should remove the group mysql, also.
actually the plan is to remove the userdel action altogether; it's contrary to
Fedora packaging guidelines.
the problem is that when you removed mysql in fedora 7, you are not able to
install it again without knowing that you have to remove the group mysql.
i do not know what your plans are, but it would be really great to have that
fixed in f7 and rhel5 (also happens there), just for the records :)
