Description Richard 2007-02-13 14:58:42 UTC
about sys-fs/udev 104-r11
I had the same message as this on the previous update : 

* A stale coldplug init script found. You should run:
 *       rc-update del coldplug
 *       rm -f /etc/init.d/coldplug
 * udev now provides its own coldplug functionality

So i did it .. and the files arent there .. now this morning 
i install the update : yet again .. same message , i repeat 
those steps and have : 

ric ric # rc-update del coldplug
 * 'coldplug' not found in any of the specified runlevels

Obviously there is something wrong with the script
that checks for coldplug.


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.emerge -u udev

Actual Results:  
installs , only the error message is wrong. 

Expected Results:  
install and check correctly that coldplug has been removed
from the run level.

How about that you finally do `rm -f /etc/init.d/coldplug` as told by the message?
Comment 2 Richard 2007-02-13 18:56:33 UTC
of course that had been done :) 

i wouldn't submit a bug unless both instructions had been 
executed. Sorry for the misunderstanding. What you saw below 
is yet a second time around ! Updating from previous to this new
version.Last time around i preformed both commands , this 
time around it repeats the same though the commands have already
been done with a previous update and the file /etc/init.d/coldplug
dosen't exist nor an entry for coldplug in rc levels

This is the second time.

Well, then get your bash fixed, there's nothing wrong with the check.
