I am asking you because you are listed as the maintainer of ipsec-tools: do you know whether the path for racoon has been /usr/sbin/racoon since RHEL 5.0, or if it has changed between releases?


Comment 9 Tomas Mraz 2009-09-03 07:28:16 EDT
The path for racoon was always /usr/sbin/racoon (in RHEL-5.0 as well as in RHEL-4).

Fixed in -r 21655, 5.4. Setting to MODIFIED.

This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion, but this component is not scheduled to be updated in
the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. If you would like
this request to be reviewed for the next minor release, ask your
support representative to set the next rhel-x.y flag to "?".

Verified: now /sbin/racoon
