Description ritz 2008-08-18 05:08:58 EDT
Description of problem:
When updating the "system-config-netboot-cmd" package, the *.msg files in "/tftpboot/linux-install/msgs/" are overwritten regardless of whether they're modified.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
yum install system-config-netboot-cmd
yum remove  system-config-netboot-cmd
yum install system-config-netboot-cmd
Actual results:
the *.msg files in "/tftpboot/linux-install/msgs/" are overwritten

Expected results:
none of the .msg files should be overwritten if they have been changed locally.  They should be handled like any /etc configuration files.  The boot.msg file is critical to the system build process and should not be overwritten.

Additional info:
update spec file to reflect 
%config /tftpboot/linux-install/msgs/
