Description Bryan Hoover 2010-07-25 02:25:27 EDT
Description of problem:

No symlink from inadyn-mt.conf to inadyn.conf.

Since version 02.18.26, config file moved from /etc/inadyn-mt/inadyn-mt.conf to
/etc/inadyn-mt.conf.  Previous Fedora RPMs symlinked from /etc/inadyn-mt/inadyn-mt.conf to /etc/inadyn.conf.

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

rawhide, devel, inadyn-mt.spec r1.13.

How reproducible:

install inadyn-mt on a system with /etc/inadyn.conf present, and no /etc/inadyn-mt present.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. move any existing /etc/inadyn-mt.conf to a back up file

2. create /etc/inadyn.conf if it does not exist

3. install inadyn-mt
Actual results:

file /etc/inadyn-mt.conf configuration file containing a template configuration is installed.

no symbolic link from /etc/inadyn-mt.conf to /etc/inadyn.conf is installed

Expected results:

there should be a symbolic link, /etc/inadyn-mt.conf, pointing to /etc/inadyn.conf.

Additional info:

I've attached a patch to implement this behavior in the event /etc/inadyn.conf exists.  

A simple:

ln -sf /etc/inadyn.conf /etc/inadyn-mt.conf

would have been ideal, but in my testing, it appeared,

%config(norelace) /etc/inadyn-mt.conf 

did not honor symlinks, appearing thereby to overwrite any symlink created in %pre.  So my implementation was more complex.  Please allow it to serve as psudocode if there is a more obvious, simpler solution.

May require additional uninstall cleanup code.

Attached patch is against:
http://cvs.fedoraproject.org/viewvc/rpms/inadyn-mt/devel/inadyn-mt.spec r1.13.


#on %pre, if exists, /etc/inadyn.conf, detect and remember 
#if no /etc/inadyn-mt.conf
#on %post, if can remember that from %pre, remove 
#install /etc/inadyn-mt.conf template configuration
#and symlink to /etc/inadyn.conf

%pre sysvinit
if [ -f /etc/inadyn.conf ]; then
  if [ ! -f /etc/inadyn-mt.conf ]; then
   ln -sf /etc/inadyn.conf /etc/inadyn-mt.conf.rpmlnk

%post sysvinit
/sbin/chkconfig --add inadyn
if [ -f /etc/inadyn-mt.conf.rpmlnk ]; then
  rm /etc/inadyn-mt.conf
  mv /etc/inadyn-mt.conf.rpmlnk /etc/inadyn-mt.conf
