devlabel 0.26 fails if you create a link to hdx6,
then remove dx4 ( so hdx6 is renamed to hdx5 ).
0.3x.x versions can handle this situation.

Although there is a possible config file incompatibility ( but nothing 
insolvable ).

0.38.07 will be in rawhide in the next day or three.
Comment 3 Gary Lerhaupt 2003-06-05 21:08:00 EDT
by the way, that config file incompatability can be handled with `devlabel
reverseremap`.  this prints a warning that its about to ditch column 3 (uuids)
of /etc/sysconfig/devlabel and refigure it out based on what's in column 2 (last
known device name).  to actually do it you have to also specify --force.
Comment 4 David Balažic 2003-06-11 04:02:55 EDT
Bill, you should have waited until we ( me and Gary ) work out an automatic 
upgrade script :-(

IMO "rpm -U devlabel-x.x.x.rpm" should be all that is needed for smooth 
upgrade. Requiring manual execution of some commands is bad, consider automatic 
updates, mass updates etc ...
Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2003-06-11 12:11:22 EDT
Hey, if you don't want me to put it in, don't send me mails saying this new
version is available. :)

Seriously, this is much like upgrades of other apps we have that don't read old
config files.
Comment 6 David Balažic 2003-06-17 13:33:37 EDT
The latest version (0.40.03) has a solution for this. ( note : I did not 
downloaded it yet myself ).

Include this version ! :-)
Comment 7 Gary Lerhaupt 2003-06-18 17:50:37 EDT
Yes, 0.40 handles the upgrade process.  This will significantly decrease 
customer issues.  As well, I have worked with Tom Coughlan to fix some of uuid 
handling issues for weird cases.  Specifically, if the association value is 
non-zero for a page83 id (meaning its the uuid based on the port and is 
unstable), scsi_unique_id no longer returns it.  As well, if a device returns 
two identifiers of the same page and type, devlabel concatenates them rather 
than breaking.  Latest is 0.41.01.
