there is a minor bug in openvpn.spec (v2.0_beta19). In the %files
section the init script is always taken from /etc/rc.d/init.d instead
of /etc/init.d in case of a SuSE distribution. This results in an
rpm build error on SuSE systems.

The appended patch should fix this.



What gives "rpm --eval '%{_initrddir}'" on SuSE? In RH/FC it gives "/etc/rc.d/init.d", which I use in my .spec file: --- cut --- # to fix later: '--program-suffix 2' is optional, so use * here %{_initrddir}/* --- cut --- instead of --- cut --- /etc/rc.d/init.d/%{name} --- cut --- If accepted then --- cut --- %if "%{VENDOR}" == "SuSE" %__install -c -d -m 755 %{buildroot}/etc/init.d %__install -c -m 755 suse/%{name}.init %{buildroot}/etc/init.d/%{name} %else %__install -c -d -m 755 %{buildroot}/etc/rc.d/init.d %__install -c -m 755 sample-scripts/%{name}.init %{buildroot}/etc/rc.d/init.d/%{name} %endif --- cut --- should be just one line :) --- cut --- %__install -c -d -m 755 %{buildroot}%{_initrddir} --- cut ---

Using %{_initrddir} would be fine, if all rpm installation would treat it correctly.

SuSE 9.2 correctly reports /etc/init.d, but SuSE 9.1 doesn't :-(

rpm --eval '%{_initrddir}' results, _initrddir is defined in

SuSE 9.1: /etc/rc.d/init.d
%_initrddir             %{_sysconfdir}/rc.d/init.d

SuSE 9.2: /etc/init.d
%_initrddir             %{_sysconfdir}/init.d

SuSE 9.1 has no directory /etc/rc.d/init.d. Instead /etc/rc.d is
a link to /etc/init.d thus resulting in /etc/init.d/init.d. This
messes up the installation of the init-script.

The tests for SuSE in the spec file are correct in
sections %description, %install, %post and %preun, they are
only missing in the %files section.
