   SUSE Recommended Update: Recommended update for systemd-rpm-macros

Announcement ID:    SUSE-RU-2020:2888-1
Rating:             moderate
References:         #1173034 #1176932 #1177034 
Affected Products:
                    SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12-SP5

   An update that has three recommended fixes can now be


   This update for systemd-rpm-macros fixes the following issues:

   - Introduce macro '%service_del_postun_without_restart' to resolve
     blocking new releases based on this. (bsc#1173034)

   - Backport missing macros of directory paths from upstream
     + %_environmentdir
     + %_modulesloaddir
     + %_modprobedir

   - Make sure %_restart_on_update_never and %_stop_on_removal_never don't
     expand to the empty string. (bsc#1176932) Otherwise sequences like the
     following code: if [ ... ]; then %_restart_on_update_never fi would
     result in the following incorrect shell syntax: if [ ... ]; then fi

   - Passing %{?*} when calling a macro is broken, so workaround it.
