Description James Bourne 2003-03-03 16:08:15 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2) Gecko/20021126

Description of problem:
Adding (noreplace) to the .spec file would correct this.  I know that it is not
normal for the startup script file to be modified but when it is modified, it
would be nice to have the choice of upgrading the init script.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
8.11.6-23.73

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -Fvh sendmail*23.73.rpm

    

Actual Results:  previously modified /etc/init.d/sendmail was replaced

Expected Results:  Either the original modified version of /etc/init.d/sendmail
should be backed up as sendmail.rpmorig or the new file saved as sendmail.rpmnew.

The RHL7.3 version as well as the errata rpm for RHL7.3 have this file
marked as %config file. So if you don't have a backup file, this would
suggest that your original file has not been changed. Maybe you have
thought about /etc/sysconfig/sendmail instead?

greetings,

Florian La Roche
