krb5 packaging issues
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:53 EST
Description of problem:
krb5-workstation is a pain because it required xinetd.
krb5-workstation should really be _at_least_ two sub packages that
break things out into inet services that require xinetd, client utils
that include the network programs that use gss service, and another
package for manipulating kerberos tickets.
I can do the work and send you a spec file patch if you would like.
I am on a crusade to get rid of all the bogus deps that pull in xinetd.

proposed spec file changes
Attached is a proposed spec file that splits workstation into user and inet
You need to handle the upgrade cases (obsoleting krb5-workstation,
triggering xinetd restarts as appropriate) for this to not break on
Closing per lack of response to previous request for information. This bug was
originally filed against a much earlier version of Fedora Core, and significant
changes have taken place since the last version for which this bug is confirmed.
Note that FC3 and FC4 are supported by Fedora Legacy for security
fixes only. Please install a still supported version and retest. If
it still occurs on FC5 or FC6, please reopen and assign to the correct
version. Otherwise, if this a security issue, please change the
product to Fedora Legacy. Thanks, and we are sorry that we did not
get to this bug earlier.
