Description Niels de Vos 2012-08-27 07:53:22 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #829734 +++

Description of problem:
When uninstalling the glusterfs RPMs, files and directories under /var/lib/glusterd are not removed, not renamed to have a .rpmsave extension.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
glusterfs-3.2.6 but also glusterfs-3.3.0-1

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install some glusterfs RPMs, or install the RHS-2.0
2. yum remove glusterfs
Actual results:

# yum remove glusterfs
  glusterfs.x86_64 0:3.3.0-1                                                    

Dependency Removed:
  glusterfs-fuse.x86_64 0:3.3.0-1   glusterfs-geo-replication.x86_64 0:3.3.0-1  


# find /var/lib/glusterd

Expected results:
All important configuration files should be kept and automatically have a .rpmsave extension added (marked as %config in the .spec).

Any empty directories available under /var/lib/glusterd should be removed automatically.

Created attachment 590243 [details]
proposed changes to the spec file

These changes for the spec file make sure that all files and directories under /var/lib/glusterd are removed. Tests on one of my RHS installations were successful.

A test-build based on glusterfs-3.3.0qa45-1.el6 is underway:

The customer who filed this problem is running 3.2.6 on Amazon. Shall I clone this bug for 3.2.6 and propose a fix there as well?
