Description Aleksey Nogin 2002-03-28 05:18:05 UTC
The kdebase package from Skipjack updates (as pulled by up2date) is doing
something rather strange with configs:

rpm -qlv kdebase-3.0.0-0.cvs20020321.1 | grep kdmrc
-rw-r--r--    1 root    root            17071 Мар 21 10:35 /etc/X11/xdm/kdmrc
-rw-r--r--    1 root    root            17072 Мар 20 08:58 /etc/kde/kdm/kdmrc
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root    root               29 Мар 21 10:35
/usr/share/config/kdm/kdmrc -> ../../../../etc/X11/xdm/kdmrc

rpm -qlv kdebase-3.0.0-0.cvs20020321.1 | grep Xacc
-rw-r--r--    1 root    root             1926 Мар 14 08:51 /etc/kde/kdm/Xaccess
-rw-r--r--    1 root    root             1926 Мар 21 10:34

Why does it have 2 *different* copies of kdmrc *and* a symlink???

This is fixed in the current version.

Comment 2 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2002-04-02 11:09:05 UTC
(The symlinks are needed because of Bug #61413; the real fix would be to 
replace /usr/share/config/kdm with a symlink to /etc/X11/xdm).
