Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 656617
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 lvm2 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
Peter, just FYI, without a fix for this bug, clvmd cannot start in rawhide because /var/run/lvm/ is not there and clvmd cannot create the listening socket.
We're on 2-week dev cycles at the moment - so this one will be planned for the next fortnight (starting Monday).

Thanks for the info. I only wanted to make sure that cause/effect were known (other than changing the spec file to %ghost).
Patch for creating the /var/run/lvm on-demand is now upstream, waiting for packaging now.
The current rawhide package should include all changes needed (lvm2-2.02.81-1.fc15), based on the guidelines found here: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Tmpfiles.d_packaging_draft.
