This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux release.  Since this
bugzilla is in a component that is not approved for the current
release, it has been closed with resolution deferred.  You may
reopen this bugzilla for consideration in the next release.

Comment 1 Ondrej Vasik 2011-02-18 11:40:18 UTC
As RHEL-4.9 is last update for RHEL-4 and it is not suitable for new features
and should address only security, performance and critical issues, I'm moving
the bugzilla to RHEL-5. Package is not present in RHEL-6.

patch to fix init script like in fedora

This patch fixes the init script in the same way as it's done in Fedora.

Comment 10 Honza Horak 2013-03-13 17:43:20 UTC
There is no chance to fix this in RHEL-5 any more, since RHEL 5.10 is going to include only serious fixes. rarpd is not in RHEL-6, so closing as WONTFIX.
