Description Jan Pazdziora 2009-01-16 10:17:25 EST
Description of problem:

Fedora Packaging says on their page
   Packages with SysV-style initscripts must put any them into
   /etc/rc.d/init.d. A rpm macro exists for this directory, %_initrddir.

   In the past, some packages were putting files in /etc/init.d instead
   of /etc/rc.d/init.d. (/etc/init.d is a symlink to /etc/rc.d/init.d)

   This split made it more difficult to use yum install against the
   initscript filename and path. Since /etc/init.d is the symlink (and
   because the Filesystem Hierarchy Standard does not mandate a location),
   Fedora requires that all SysV-style initscripts must go into the full
   /etc/rc.d/init.d directory. 

The package spacewalk-proxy-tools states the location of rhn-proxy initscript is /etc/init.d/rhn-proxy.

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -ql spacewalk-proxy-tools | grep '/etc'
Actual results:


Expected results:


Additional info:

Well, maybe the rhn-proxy should be gone from /etc/*/init.d altogether and moved to /usr/sbin, just like rhn-satellite was moved away from /etc.
