Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 432582
Last modified: 2008-02-28 16:41:03 EST
Description of problem:
Inside of the spec-file
/var/yp/Makefile should be marked as
Rationale: /var/yp/Makefile is supposed to be edited and customized.
Due to it not being marked %config(noreplace), ypserv package updates will blow
away all customizations users might have applied. As a result ypservers might
become unusable and kill whole networks.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. edit /var/yp/Makefile
2. rpm -U ypserv-<newversion>.rpm
The edited /var/yp/Makefile is being backed up to /var/yp/Makefile.rpmsave and
replaced with the rpm's original /var/yp/Makefile. All customizations are being
lost. The next "make" will create ypserver dbs not meeting the user's
expectations, which are likely to break yp-based networks (As in my case).
