Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 49114
/etc/issue not updated during upgrade 7.1->7.2beta
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:21:47 EDT
Description of Problem:
/etc/issue still reads:
Red Hat Linux release 7.1 (Seawolf)
Kernel 2.4.3-12smp on an ia64
redhat-release and /proc/version indicate that the system is
running the proper kernel and release.
Is there an /etc/issue.rpmnew?
Putting bug in NEEDINFO state.
This defect considered MUST-FIX for Fairfax gold-release.
* /etc/issue and /etc/issue.rpmnew are both present.
* /etc/issue contains the pre-upgrade kernel/release info
* here are the contents of /etc/issue.rpmnew:
Red Hat Linux release 7.1.92 (Fairfax)
Kernel \r on an \m
Looks like an initscripts issue.
Woohoo, a real, live, redhat-release bug.
Still thinking how to fix this.
Happened to me too.
Wouldn't removing noreplace be sufficient? Is (normally dynamically) created
/etc/issue* considered fair game for removing?
Hm, maybe. But if they change it, there's no need to replace it.
So, what you'd want is:
%config (first time it's installed)
%config(noreplace) all subsequent times
Of course, you can't implement this this way, since you never know at what
point will be the first time they install it.
Actually, you *can* implement it that way - fun with triggers!
Will be fixed in the next beta release.
