/var/lib/setroubleshoot/email_alert_recipients strange place for configuration
Last modified: 2008-09-03 10:03:00 EDT
Description of problem:
In the default /etc/setroubleshoot/setroubleshoot.cfg it's suggested that /var/lib/setroubleshoot/email_alert_recipients should be used for specifying recipients of email alerts. IMHO, this file should
1) reside in /etc/setroubleshoot
2) Be marked as %config(noreplace)
3) Contain some (commented out) examples
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -qlc |grep email_alert_recipients
email_alert_recipients is not a config file, it's application data and it's directly written by the application while it's running. According to the FHS such files belong in /var/lib/<app_name>, not /etc.
Can be modified from the gui
> sealert -b
File->Edit Email Alert List
Thanks for the pointers, didn't even check the GUI. Closing this one, sorry for the hassle.
