The openssh scripts bomb if openssh is installed before the dev package is
present. This to all intents and purposes "can't happen" with the standard RH
installer though.

Can you be more specific about the failure in this case?  Are we
talking about redirection to /dev/null creating an empty file which
gets overwritten with a device node when 'dev' is installed, or
something more serious like an application attempting to communicate
with a tty which isn't there?
Comment 2 Alan Cox 2003-11-12 18:28:03 EST
If its installed before the dev package the scriplets fail when its
being installed. It would fail to run without dev but thats a bit of a
different problem.

I found this with a custom install builder for a small box, that
happened to do ssh before dev and got script errors
Comment 3 Nalin Dahyabhai 2003-11-12 19:23:39 EST
... fails how, exactly?  Error message?
Comment 4 Alan Cox 2003-11-12 19:29:11 EST
I'll try and find a box to rerun the test set on next week or two.

Its "low" priority for good reason tho
Comment 5 Tomas Mraz 2005-02-04 11:10:15 EST
No response here.
Comment 6 Tomas Mraz 2005-04-01 03:13:47 EST
Does it still apply now that we have the udev?
Please reopen if still needed.
