Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 100559
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:37:34 EDT
Initscripts sets up the console fonts but does not have a dependancy on the
console fonts being installed. It also doesnt suck in the keyboard map stuff
althogh I'm not 100% sure that it should - it just seems sensible
The network scripts (ifup) need dhclient but don't require dhcp - again not sure
if this is intentional because dhcp can be avoided. If so then dhcp is missing
from the dependancies for the redhat-config-network tool instead 8)
I'm unsure whether we really want to require in initscripts all the support
tools for *all* the interface types; this would reqiure dhclient, pppd,
isdn4k-utils, irda-utils, ipsec-tools, cipe, and rp-pppoe for all installs.
As for the console stuff, that should just gracefully do nothing if kbd isn't
installed. If it's showing errors, it needs fixed.
I also get dependancy problems, but from the Bluetooth module. Is this a known
problem or should I file a new bug report?
The kernel dependency failure is known, yes.
regarding comment #1,
if kbd package isn't installed initscripts prints an ugly error
message can't set default font [FAILED] (in red letters).
this should be fixed.
this was reproduced in stock FC2 with all the updates.
Alan should change the version number ( 1 -> 2 )
Are you running in a non-unicode locale (just to make sure I've found
the right case where it fails...)
I was probably running unicode locale but couldnt be sure and can't
really check any more
Error case removed in cvs, will be in later initscripts builds.
initscripts-7.57-2 still gives an error message if kbd package is not
Erm, later than 7.57-x. I should roll a new tarball at some point.
