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

Announcement ID:    SUSE-RU-2021:0677-1
Rating:             moderate
References:         #1177039 
Affected Products:
                    SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12-SP5

   An update that has one recommended fix can now be installed.


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

   - Bump to version 6

   - Make upstream '%systemd_{pre,post,preun,postun}' aliases to their SUSE
     counterparts. Packagers can now choose to use the upstream or the SUSE
     variants indifferently. For consistency the SUSE variants should be
     preferred since almost all SUSE packages already use them but the
     upstream versions might be usefull in certain cases where packages need
     to support multiple distros based on RPM.

   - Improve the logic used to apply the presets. (bsc#1177039) Before
     presests were applied at a) package installation b) new units introduced
     via a package update (but after making sure that it was not a SysV
     initscript being converted). The problem is that a) didn't handle
     package a renaming or split properly since the package with the new name
     is installed rather being updated and therefore the presets were applied
     even if they were already with the old name. We now cover this case (and
     the other ones) by applying presets only if the units are new and the
     services are not being migrated. This regardless of whether this happens
     during an install or an update.
