[RHEL 5.2] Xen 3.1.1: Move nvram from /usr to /var
Last modified: 2009-12-14 16:25:26 EST
Cset 15383 from xen-3.1-testing.hg moves nvram files from /usr/lib/xen/boot/ to
/var/lib/xen/nvram/ to accomodate for a read-only /usr. This change is
recommended for inclusion in RHEL 5.2.
If we move the NVRAM files, then when any existing user upgrades from 5.1 to 5.2
they loose their persistent VM state. While I agree it makes sense for FHS
compliance, moving files around in this way is not the sort of change we can
slip into an update. IMHO, this is dev-NACK.
Closing as WONTFIX.
