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.
Comment 2 Davide Bolcioni 2007-05-03 06:08:41 EDT
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.
