Description Aleksey Nogin 2002-07-18 18:29:41 EDT
The first time up2date is run it seems to modify a lot of .pyc files. After that
rpm -V updates prints:

SM5....T   /usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/bootloadercfg.pyc

Should this really be happening?

Comment 1 Adrian Likins 2002-08-02 16:03:47 EDT
I"m not exactly sure why it does that...

investigating...
Comment 2 Adrian Likins 2002-08-21 14:00:26 EDT
As best I can tell, this is normal behaviour. The *.pyc files are being
recompiled when the app runs. 

Deffering for now, will take a look at it for the next release.
Comment 3 Aleksey Nogin 2003-01-06 20:19:13 EST
Still there in Phoebe.
Comment 4 Aleksey Nogin 2003-01-10 19:38:30 EST
Still there is Rawhide (up2date-3.0.40-1).
Comment 5 Adrian Likins 2003-08-06 18:33:40 EDT
3.1.x seems to have finally fixed this. Closing.
Comment 6 Aleksey Nogin 2003-09-03 05:25:31 EDT
Sorry, still there.

With Severn + up2date-3.9.20-2, I still get:

Comment 9 Aleksey Nogin 2004-01-19 04:47:16 EST
Still there with up2date-4.3.8-1
Comment 10 Warren Togami 2004-05-06 02:49:14 EDT
I just checked in a fix for mailman that works for that similar
problem.  msw said that recipe should work for any python package.  I
would attempt to modify up2date right now, but I can't find it in the CVS.
Comment 11 petrosyan 2004-06-01 00:52:07 EDT
this bug seems to be fixed in Fedora Core 2 up2date-4.3.19-1
Comment 12 Aleksey Nogin 2004-06-01 01:49:57 EDT
Yes, indeed. Changelog shows:

* Thu May 06 2004 Warren Togami <wtogami@redhat.com>

- #69205 bytecompile for rpm -V

Thanks, Warren!
