Description Joseph Shraibman 2003-06-26 16:16:28 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030624

Description of problem:
When upgrading ypserv per https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2003-173.html this

warning: /var/yp/Makefile saved as /var/yp/Makefile.rpmsave

Since the only difference between the to Makefiles in that /bin/gawk was changed
to /usr/bin/gawk (which is a symlink to /bin/gawk anyway) what was the point of
making people put their Makefiles back where they should be?

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

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -Fvh http://updates.redhat.com/8.0/en/os/i386/ypserv-2.8-0.80E.i386.rpm

Actual Results:  warning: /var/yp/Makefile saved as /var/yp/Makefile.rpmsave

Additional info: I'm filing this for the rh 8 rpm, but it probably applies to
all the rpms in the errata.

Red Hat Linux is no longer supported by Red Hat, Inc. If you are still
running Red Hat Linux, you are strongly advised to upgrade to a
current Fedora Core release or Red Hat Enterprise Linux or comparable.
Some information on which option may be right for you is available at

Red Hat apologizes that these issues have not been resolved yet. We do
want to make sure that no important bugs slip through the cracks.
Please check if this issue is still present in a current Fedora Core
release. If so, please change the product and version to match, and
check the box indicating that the requested information has been
provided. Note that any bug still open against Red Hat Linux on will be
closed as 'CANTFIX' on September 30, 2006. Thanks again for your help.
