Description Hunter Matthews 2002-02-26 18:24:29 EST
Description of Problem:
The makefile (/var/yp/Makefile) does not appear to be treated as a config
file, and it really is.

Here in biology, we've added several tables for the automounter, chosen 
not to use shadow passwords, etc etc. 

So, when I upgraded our NIS server, imagine my .... surprise to discover 
that the first make after adding a new group results in a broken NIS for 
the department.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
ypserv 1.3.12-2

However, I note that in a verify:
[root@pogonia yp]# rpm -V ypserv
....L...   /var/yp
SM5....T c /var/yp/Makefile
SM5...GT c /var/yp/securenets

That the makefile is marked as a config file. However, rpm (during the 
anaconda upgrade from RH 7.1) most definately did not create an rpmsave or 
rpmnew file.

/var/yp/Makefile is marked as %config, so everything should be fine.

Yes, which I noted in the bug report. 

Care to comment why we had a problem then? Did you try it? Or just make it 
WORKSFORME after reading the spec file?

This seems to be reported in 20106 too.

This is in fact a bug in rpm.
