Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 656600
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 httpd 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
Quick fix: add /etc/tmpfiles.d/httpd.conf containing the one line:
d /var/run/httpd 710 root apache
And add a dependency on systemd-units for ownership of the /etc/tmpfiles.d directory.
Should /etc/tmpfiles.d/httpd.conf be marked %config, %config(noreplace), or not at all?
does this work?

I'd suggest not at all since there should be no reason to modify it at all, and any additional local entries could be added to a separate tmpfiles.d file. Not marking it as %config(noreplace) generates an rpmlint warning but I'd live with that.
If this stuff isn't meant to be modifiable at all, it shouldn't be in /etc.
Some of the conf files in /etc/tmpfiles.d might be valid to edit, for example, to change cleanup intervals and stuff like that. However, to the Apache case this doesn't really apply.
