Description Lennart Poettering 2010-11-23 23:31:09 UTC
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

Comment 1 Paul Howarth 2010-12-01 14:39:26 UTC
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.

Comment 2 Joe Orton 2011-01-04 15:52:38 UTC
Should /etc/tmpfiles.d/httpd.conf be marked %config, %config(noreplace), or not at all?

Comment 3 Joe Orton 2011-01-04 16:11:55 UTC

does this work?

> at all?

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.

Comment 5 Joe Orton 2011-01-04 17:17:22 UTC
If this stuff isn't meant to be modifiable at all, it shouldn't be in /etc.

Comment 6 Lennart Poettering 2011-01-21 00:49:52 UTC
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.
