Created attachment 1126 [details]
thinlinc folder in /opt/

For some reason, the state in the attached thinlinc folder causes install-server/tl-setup to think that there is no previous installation present in the system, as in not asking for how to merge old config files. The folder has not been touched in any way except by running the installer.

As a (likely) result of this, there are still .rpmsave files present after the installer has finished. 

After installation, tl-setup will start noticing previous configs again. This becomes problematic if, for example, you first install 4.14, and then upgrade to a later version. During upgrade, the installer merges configs from the .rpmsave files instead of from the .tlsave files.

Installed on RHEL 9
