Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 160486
netatalk init script doesn't handle CNID_METAD_RUN=yes

Description of problem:
The init script "/etc/init.d/atalk" does not take account of CNID_METAD_RUN=yes, defined in "/etc/atalk/netatalk.conf". "cnid_metad" is very important to prevent database corruptions in .AppleDB, so i consider this a bug.
BTW, the whole init script does look a little strange (what does ATALK_BGROUND give?).
Beside this, as a hint/wish: netatalk-2.0.3 is released and has some bugs fixed...
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Just look at /etc/init.d/atalk ...
Yes, I agree - the old /etc/init.d/atalk had alot of inexplicable
features added by a maintainer who is no longer here.
I've now added netatalk-2.0.3-1 to rawhide . This uses the netatalk
distribution's initscript, which does not have these problems.
netatalk-2.0.3-1 should be in rawhide-20050617, and it can also be
downloaded from: http://people.redhat.com/~jvdias/netatalk/ .
Please try out the new version - if there are no problems with it,
I'll get it added to fc4-updates shortly. Thank You!

Removes some old cruft from the spec file
Old atalk and some patches are not needed anymore with netatalk-2.0.3
The new version works like a charm, thank you. (Tested with MacOSX
10.3.9 and 10.4.1 on x86_64)
But while you're on it, why not remove some cruft from the
netatalk.spec file (patch attached)
Kindly file a seperate bug report on the patch cleanup, Mixing several issues on
the same report is not a good practise. Closing this one

Well, it's still not in fc4-updates, and the netatalk currently in fc4 is really not usable (mainly because
the cnid_metad is never started). Could you please do it?

in a current Fedora release (such as Fedora Core 5 or later), please reopen and
