Description josip 2001-01-23 14:48:59 EST
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

Suggested fix:
(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
Comment 4 David Mason 2001-01-23 16:39:01 EST
Ah - powertools. My apologies, you are correct. Assigning.
Comment 5 Tim Powers 2001-01-23 16:58:56 EST
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.
