Description Warren Togami 2008-04-13 19:56:12 EDT
Chroot installs and some upgrades from Fedora 8 end up without
event-compat-sysv.  Attempting to boot a system without event-compat-sysv causes
bootup to get stuck shortly after switchroot.

Should initscripts (or something else) require event-compat-sysv?  We clearly
cannot operate without it yet.
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2008-04-14 12:17:56 EDT
I suppose it could, however:

- it's pulled in on upgrades because it obsoletes event-compat-sysv
- it's pulled in on the most minimal installs as a mandatory package in the core
comps group

Ergo, I'm not seeing how you'd end up without it other than by manual removal.
Comment 3 Jesse Keating 2008-04-15 09:40:38 EDT
Warren, can you answer Bill's question.

Bill, can you do a build so that we can close this bug out of the blocker list?
Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2008-04-15 13:27:56 EDT
Fixed in 8.70-1.
Comment 5 Warren Togami 2008-04-15 16:01:05 EDT
I don't know how yum upgrades ended up without event-compat-sysv.

Anyhow, in discussion it was agreed that "it doesn't work without it" is a good
enough reason to depend on it.
