Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 656562
Please Update Spec File to use %ghost on files in /var/run and /var/lock
Last modified: 2012-05-31 15:39:35 EDT
Your package condor appears to include a file in /var/run or /var/lock. With an upcoming change in Rawhide these directories will now be mounted as tmpfs. For details about this change please consult http://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/devel-announce/2010-November/000726.html For your package this means that you need add %ghost to all files that are placed in either of these two directories. Please make sure to make this change in time for the F15 cycle. For details about %ghost see http://www.rpm.org/max-rpm-snapshot/s1-rpm-inside-files-list-directives.html#S3-RPM-INSIDE-FLIST-GHOST-DIRECTIVE , for more information on the F15 feature see the feature page https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/var-run-tmpfs . If your package already uses %ghost on these files, feel free to close this bug report right-away. Sorry for this mass bug filing, and if you have any further questions, don't hesitate to ask on fedora-devel or ask me personally. Thank you, Lennart
Any news here?
The "files" in question are:
It looks like we aren't %ghost'ing, but we do provide a tmpfiles.conf.
Brian, will you take a look at this?
The following says "not to" do this for directories:

%ghost'ing (7.7.1-0.1) appears to be a problem because /var/run/condor will not exist between install and system reboot. The result is the condor_procd failing and any daemons relying on it (condor_schedd, condor_startd) will not run without manual intervention of,
sudo mkdir /var/run/condor
sudo chown condor.condor /var/run/condor
