Description Steven Hardy 2012-09-04 17:26:24 EDT
Description of problem:

Updating from earlier versions of qpid-cpp-server to 0.16-5 or newer removes /etc/rc.d/init.d/qpidd, which has been repackaged into the qpid-cpp-server-daemon

This change may be OK for rawhide or pre-release Fedora versions, but it has been applied to current stable releases (both F16 and F17 are affected)

This is contravening several guidelines in the Fedora updates policy:


-  Updates should aim to fix bugs, and not introduce features, particularly when those features would materially affect the user or developer experience.
- Avoid changing the user experience if at all possible. 

I think a dependency should be added to qpid-cpp-server so it will automatically install the required qpid-cpp-server-daemon package is installed, keeping the update transparent for existing users.  

The current approach breaks the package for all existing users after a "yum update", in a not-necessarily-obvious way.

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

qpid-cpp-server-0.16-5 onwards

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Do a "yum update" from qpid-cpp-server-0.16-4 or earlier
2. Restart qpidd or reboot
3. Observe the following error
Actual results:

Error message, service is not started, the init.d/qpidd script is deleted.

Failed to issue method call: Unit qpidd.service failed to load: No such file or directory. See system logs and 'systemctl status qpidd.service' for details.

Expected results:

Should not break on update, the init.d/qpidd script should not be deleted on "yum update", this change should be made transparent to end-users and downstream projects for stable Fedora versions.
