Description Davide Bolcioni 2007-05-02 07:17:17 EDT
Description of problem: The dhcdbd uses nmblookup but does not find it on the KDE live CD Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): dhcdbd-2.7-1.fc7 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Boot the Fedora 7 test 4 live CD 2. Observe console messages 3. Actual results: Starting dhcdbd:sh: nmblookup: command not found Expected results: No error messages Additional info: I guess dhcdbd needs either to (a) only invoke nmblookup if it's there or (b) if it's really needed (odd, I have no need of SMB on a 15+ host network) introduce a dependency to bring it in.

Attach the script you are talking about. dhcdbd has nothing to do with nmblookup and it's not in the init script.

Sorry, it was a case of "post hoc, ergo propter hoc" misattribution. The actual component involved is LISa, i.e. kdenetwork-3.5.6-3.fc7, which starts a few steps before dhcdbd in the KDE live image; this tricked me into believing it was actually dhcdbd triggering the behavior indirectly. Some LISa binary blindly starts nmblookup without ever checking if it's actually there; the resulting error messages appear on the console, at fixed intervals. They are not visibile when running under X. This behavior can be turned off in /etc/lisarc or through the LISa panel in the Local Network Browsing panel of KDE's control center. This turned out to be a cosmetic bug; the best bet for FC7 is probably to ship with recourse to nmblookup disabled in /etc/lisarc, as it is easily enabled in the GUI when needed.

it's now fixed in kdenetwork-3_5_6-4_fc7. Thanks for your report.
