Description of problem:
The release of the Red Hat 8 beta is a good time to properly correct the
nonstandard, legacy location of the init.d directory. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Read the LSB
2.Examine /etc/init.d. It is a symlink to a legacy location.


Additional info:

This may be necessary to pass the LSB testsuites, though I'm not sure - anyone?

Can't do this, it breaks upgrades. :(

Comment 2 Mike MacCana 2002-08-21 06:57:06 UTC
Then perhaps reassign the bug to anaconda, if anaconda can't handle the
relocation? Otherwise, I think one should defer the bug - this will have to be
fixed at some point.

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2002-08-21 16:40:23 UTC
The upgrade issues are independent of anaconda. It's not practical to do the
switch. (we've tried before)
