Description Mohammed Arafa 2012-04-12 07:08:10 EDT
Description of problem:

the rpm for ddclient says the version is 3.8.1 however /var/cache/ddclient/ddclient.cache says the version is 3.8.0 and this is causing an unnecesary noise in the logs everytime it runs:
WARNING:  file /var/cache/ddclient/ddclient.cache, line 1: program version mismatch; ignoring /var/cache/ddclient/ddclient.cache

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run /etc/init.d/ddclient start
2. tail /var/log/messages
3. see: WARNING:  file /var/cache/ddclient/ddclient.cache, line 1: program version mismatch; ignoring /var/cache/ddclient/ddclient.cache

Actual results:
the file ddclient.cache is ignored

Expected results:
the cache file is not ignored

Comment 2 Fedora End Of Life 2012-08-07 14:09:45 EDT
This message is a notice that Fedora 15 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 15. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '15' have been closed as WONTFIX.

(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 15 reached end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that
version of Fedora.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here:
