Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 335141
rpcbind service prevented from starting by a typo
Last modified: 2008-04-04 13:02:07 EDT
Description of problem:
In start() function of /etc/rc.d/init.d/rpcbind script there
is the following:
# Check that networking is up.
[ "$NETWORKING" = "no" ] || exit 6
So with $NETWORKING set to "yes", as you would expect this
terminated with a status 6 and no daemon is started. You likely
intended "&&" instead of "||".
Does any other value but "no" indeed guarantees that networking is
up? What about "NO", for example, no empty?
It looks like that as a side effect this is causing also non-zero
status from rpm while removing rpcbind-0.1.4-8.fc8 so one ends up
with a duplicate. A subsequent 'rpm -e rpcbind-0.1.4-8.fc8'
succeeds as rpcbind is not running anymore.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
