ignored by rpm -V

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  rpm -V up2date
Actual results:
failures will likely be due to MD5, size, or timestamp change(s) in config file

Comment 9 Beth Nackashi 2006-05-15 19:17:18 UTC
To view the spec file:
1- copy the source rpm onto the client
2- rpm2cpio up2date-x.x.xx-x.src.rpm |cpio -i -d
3- open up2date.spec

Comment 10 Beth Nackashi 2006-05-15 19:40:46 UTC
Package verified:

The following lines were added to up2date.spec to fix this bug:
%config(noreplace) %verify(not md5 size mtime mode) /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date
%config(noreplace) %verify(not md5 size mtime) /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date-uuid

I have seen a mode failure on my x86_64 box, so I am recommending adding mode to
the up2date-uuid list of excludes.

[root@bnackash-64 tmp]# rpm -V up2date
.M...... c /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date-uuid

Comment 11 Beth Nackashi 2006-06-01 14:48:23 UTC
latest up2date and rhnlib packages:


Comment 12 Beth Nackashi 2006-06-01 17:11:52 UTC
mode has been added to the up2date-uuid list of excludes:

%config(noreplace) %verify(not md5 size mtime mode) /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date
%config(noreplace) %verify(not md5 size mtime mode) /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date-uuid
