Description Jonathan Kamens 2001-06-27 11:14:36 EDT
When I run "rpm --verify bind" with bind-9.1.3-0.rc2.1 installed, I see
"S.5....T c /etc/rndc.conf".  I shouldn't see this complaint, since there's
nothing wrong with the fact that /etc/rndc.conf has been modified, since
it's a config file which frequently gets modified after installation.
Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-06-27 11:23:15 EDT
It's the correct behavior nevertheless. rpm --verify shows which files have 
changed. It does not necessarily indicate a problem. (Yes, rpm --verify apache 
shows modifications in httpd.conf, as well).

The reasoning is that it makes sense to get a list of modified files - someone 
who edited a file will know about it, and know it's not a problem that the 
file has changed.
However, if you know you never touched a file, you can see if it has been 
modified by something else (e.g. cracker, filesystem corruption). It also 
helps consultants and support to find out what files their customer edited.
