Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 24733
gps component causes startup/shutdown errors
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:30:51 EDT
Package gps-0.8.1-10 causes errors on startup and on shutdown because:
(1) /etc/init.d/rgpsp has a typo (tries to return '?$' instead of '$?')
(2) on startup, gps launches subsystem rgpsp_linux instead of just rgpsp
(1) edit /etc/init.d/rgpsp to return '$?'
(2) ln -s rgpsp_linux /etc/init.d/rgpsp
The Red Hat gnome-utils package does not come with gps - you must have either
downloaded it and installed, or gotten your gnome-utils from another source
(Helix?). You may send a bug report to the maintainer of Gps at:
While this did not come with RedHat 7.0, it is distributed with Red Hat 7.0

Suggested fix (2) above should read
ln -s rgpsp /etc/init.d/rgpsp_linux
Ah - powertools. My apologies, you are correct. Assigning.
FWIW, problem #1 was fixed(it's in rawhide). For problem #2 I am going to rename
rgpsp to rgpsp_linux to avoid having symlinks in /etc/init.d.
You should see the updated package in rawhide the next time rawhide is updated
with both of these fixes.
