Description Karel Volný 2010-06-18 11:20:44 EDT
Description of problem:
The .spec file for edac-utils does not follow packaging guidelines.
Please see https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/SysVInitScript#Initscript_packaging

1. The .spec is missing dependencies:
Requires(post): chkconfig
Requires(preun): chkconfig
Requires(preun): initscripts

2. To be honest, I really do not understand the condition
if [ $1 = 1 ]; then
in %post ... the guidelines suggest to run chkconfig --add unconditionally

3. The .spec is missing
if [ "$1" -ge "1" ] ; then
    /sbin/service <script> condrestart >/dev/null 2>&1 || :

As far as I understand the docs, reloading the service after update makes sense, because /etc/edac/labels.db may get updated and thus the change wouldn't get applied if reload is not present.
