Description giorgio bellussi 2003-04-01 05:18:41 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.2) Gecko/20030208
Netscape/7.02

Description of problem:
When Freshening sendmail rpm any user modification to /etc/pam.d/smtp will be
lost. It may be critical when user choosed a non default autentication method
(pam_ldap, e.g.).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
8.12.8-1 

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.update your /etc/pam.d/smtp
2.rpm -F sendmail-*.rpm with a newer release
3.
    

Actual Results:  /etc/pam.d/smtp is replaced by the default one.

Expected Results:  When modified, rpm should create a .rpmnew file.

Additional info:

The sendmail.spec file contains a directive for /etc/pam.d/smtp file not 
prepended by any "%config(noreplace) " string.
(it's easy).

Ok, added %config(noreplace) for the next version

Thanks,

Florian La Roche
