Description Joe Christy 2007-02-09 17:31:08 UTC
Description of problem:
Update to yum-priorities overwrites /etc/yum/pluginconf.d/priorities.conf

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Update yum-priorities from 1.0.1-1 to 1.0.2-2
2.Compare current and old /etc/yum/pluginconf.d/priorities.conf
Actual results:
If old version had been changed locally to enabled=1, new one is back to enabled=0

Expected results:
Either locally modified conf file is saved as priorities.conf.rpmsave or new one
is created as priorities.conf.rpmnew, preferably the former.

Additional info:
I wondered why all of a sudden yum wanted to "update"/revert some of my
customized packages which exist both in my local repo and external repos.

Comment 1 Tim Lauridsen 2007-06-18 08:57:45 UTC
This is strange 'yum-priorities' is build with
%config(noreplace) %{_sysconfdir}/yum/pluginconf.d/priorities.conf

So it should not replace the conf file, maybe the have been a issue with an
earlier release, but it should be ok now.
