false in /bin/false on CentOS-5

This is the wrong list for the bug report, even if rpmforge's people are around ;)
It's a rpmforge issue, not CentOS.

My CentOS 5.1 machines don't have this, and this is the same list of yum install
items I always use when setting up assp.

Any idea what to do?

Wierd, I just confirmed the issue. There is not a /usr/bin/false, but
there IS a /bin/false on a stock 5.2 install. You might check in the
rpmforge forums/list archives for some mention of this problem.


I thought I might be able to symlink /bin/false to /usr/bin/false (a
kludge, I admit) or copy /bin/false to /usr/bin/false, but neither seems
to work for me. Like I said, probably best to check with rpmforge.


Sorry!
