Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 61334
ifup and ifdown are config files?
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:26:06 EDT
I was looking at all the configuration files on the system ($ rpm -qac), and
noticed something weird:
[kaboom@skuld kaboom]$ rpm -qac | grep "^/sbin/if"
Is there a reason why /sbin/ifup and /sbin/ifdown are flagged in the spec file
as being configuration files?
Hm.... not that I recall. Let me see if I can find a reason somewhere.
Still seeing this with initscripts-6.58-1
Still seeing this with 7.3 gold
Still true with beta3 milan
still true w/ beta5 phoebe
Still true with Fedora Core 5 :-)
Maybe at one point it was considered "normal" to edit the ifup/ifdown scripts,
and they were marked as %config in order to not get changes lost when
initscripts got updated? Bill, if you can't figure why they're marked %config,
maybe you could just go and remove the tag for both, as it doesn't seem to make
Done in CVS, will be in the next build.
