Description of problem: when installing netdump-server-0.7.16-21.el5.x86_64.rpm on a RHEL 5.4 server (new install of netdump)appears to be missing several scripts in /usr/share/doc/netdump-server*/example_scripts.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: easily
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -qlp netdump-server-0.7.16-21.el5.x86_64.rpm
2. look for netdump-nospace and netdump-crash scripts(see
9th paragraph) scripts - shouldn't these in
/usr/share/doc/netdump-server*/example_scripts ? (There may be others)
these files are not present
That should be available (without installing a SRC RPM).
They could be but they don't need to be, they are really meant to be site specific scripts, and they're usually pretty simple, so theres really no much point in including any scripts as such.
The reason I reported bug 568928 as a bug is that there is published documentation pointing to the presence of these files as installed *examples* in the documentation (i.e. /usr/share/doc) directories that should be present after installation of the netdump-server package. They are not there when the package is installed currently, and it appears that there is no other packages that these example files are installed as a part of
(such as a 'netdump-server-doc' package). Are these files located in the source RPM and not distributed in the binary RPM? The docs are sparse in their discussion of this. So I disagree with the CLOSED/NOTABUG disposition of this bug - the defect as reported impedes use of the RPM as distributed.
It really doesn't impede the use of anything. I didn't include the example scripts because honestly, they're not worth including. You could have found them n the old RHEL4 channel if you really wanted them, and you would have seen that they all do the same thing, which is nothing more than firing off an email to an administrator. I was hoping to have a few less files to carry around, but if they're really that important to you, I suppose these no harm in adding them.
