Description Cameron 2002-03-17 21:25:11 EST
Description of Problem:
I ran up2date on a RedHat 7.0 box, (i586, P200MMX, 96MB Ram -if it matters-); everything seemed to be fine, went to login and I could not. All 
services seemed to be running fine and other methods of authenitication, (VIA samba, wu-ftp, etc), were working properly, but I could not login. 
Decieded to try a boot floppy to see what I could find on the HD. The sym-link that is /etc/init.d was pointing to rc.i/init.d instead of rc.d/init.d... It 
caused some odd problems. I don't think that it is a huge issue, probably just a type-o in the install script, just thought I should let someone know...

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

How Reproducible:
install the above package with up2date?

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Install
2.  try to login
Actual Results:

Expected Results:
won't get shell access VIA ssh or direct console.

Additional Information:
none that I can think of.

Have a good one.

Hm. The initscripts update is for 7.1, not 7.0, and it neither owns /etc/init.d,
nor has any %post scripts that modify the link.
