Description Fabio Erculiani (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2013-03-22 11:11:54 UTC
On my server systems, /etc/conf.d/net is a symlink to a git repository in where I locally keep the server configuration files.
Installing sys-apps/openrc breaks my symlink due to this piece of code in pkg_preinst:

        [[ -e "${EROOT}"etc/conf.d/net ]] && \
                cp "${EROOT}"etc/conf.d/net "${ED}"/etc/conf.d/

I should be changed to "cp -d" or "cp --no-dereference" or "cp --preserve=links".

Reproducible: Always

Actually, this code should be removed entirely.
Comment 2 William Hubbs gentoo-dev 2013-08-23 16:19:08 UTC
This was removed in OpenRC-0.12.
