GFS2: gfs2_edit should be moved from /sbin/ to /usr/sbin/
Last modified: 2016-04-26 09:38:08 EDT
Description of problem:
Found during TPS tests, /sbin/gfs2_edit depends on a library in /usr.
gfs2_edit should probably be moved to /usr/sbin.
=== SharedLibTest =====================
gfs2-utils-0.1.53-1.el5_3.2.i386: /sbin/gfs2_edit relies on libs in /usr: libncurses.so.5 => /usr/lib/libncurses.so.5 (0x006fc000)
SharedLibTest: 11 regular binaries and 11 debug files were found.
Checked 13 of these 22 ELF objects, and 1 error was found.
Unless otherwise reported, any unchecked objects are part of debuginfo and may be ignored.
TPSRESULT: SharedLibTest Returning: FAIL
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. ldd /sbin/gfs2_edit | grep /usr
I have no problem moving it to /usr/bin. My concern is what happens
to people who currently have it located in /sbin? The Makefile should
probably also make sure it gets deleted from /sbin.
I had a discussion with Chris Feist and Nate Straz and we decided it
was a bad idea to move the binary mid-release. Therefore, I'm
deferring this bug to RHEL6.
Spoke with Fabio, and it turns out that in F11, gfs2_edit does
reside in /usr/sbin. So the issue here for RHEL6 is more that
some of the others, such as fsck.gfs2, need to be moved to /sbin.
Fabio is going to take care of that upstream, so this should be
a non-issue for RHEL6. Closing it as NEXTRELEASE.
