Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 26813
rpm -U portmap does not restores state
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:31:22 EDT
The condrestart-rule from /etc/init.d/portmap (used by rpm-U ...) calls
directly the restart()-function without restoring the state (see
pmap_dump/pmap_set part some lines above).
I suggest to put the pmap_dump/pmap_set stuff into the restart()-function.
This bug is critical because important services like NFS or YP must be
registered by portmap and have to be restarted after upgrading portmap. See
Seems like a very good idea.... I'll look into it.
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Florence Release-Candidate #1
Done, in portmap-4.0-34.
