Description monty 2007-04-08 15:19:35 UTC
Description of problem:
When up2date installed the recent update to mysql (RHSA-2007:0152-01) it replaced the file /etc/
init.d/mysqld even though the file had been modified before running up2date. This change to the file 
broke the MySQL installation on the server.

up2date did not create a backup of the file before it was replaced.
up2date did not send any notification.
up2date did not log the change.

This is not a bug with up2date.  rpm -Uhv would exhibit the same behavior.  Only
config files are persisted through an rpm upgrade. Please log this error against
mysql, if you feel that packaging needs modification.
