Description

Installation of default config files overwrites etc/osmocom/*.cfg!
We must definitely stop doing that.

#2 Updated by neels 8 months ago

Discussion on IRC has brought up the opinion that we shouldn't install in $prefix/etc/osmocom/ at all during 'make install'.

  • that is the job of the package manager
  • doesn't make sense to reinvent the wheel for that
  • we install in share/doc/examples during 'make install' anyway, that should be enough

For this we need to adjust packaging and remove the installation to etc/osmocom/.

(Maybe some of our CI processes (docker-playground?) will fall on their faces after this?)

Is there similar issue with osmo-msc, osmo-bsc etc? I agree that we shouldn't try to replace package manager with makefiles though.
