Description Jima 2006-04-24 11:41:00 EDT
Spec URL: http://beer.tclug.org/fedora-extras/dnsmasq/dnsmasq.spec
SRPM URL: http://beer.tclug.org/fedora-extras/dnsmasq/dnsmasq-2.30-1.src.rpm
Dnsmasq is lightweight, easy to configure DNS forwarder and DHCP server. It is designed to provide DNS and, optionally, DHCP, to a small network. It can serve the names of local machines which are not in the global DNS. The DHCP server integrates with the DNS server and allows machines with DHCP-allocated addresses to appear in the DNS with names configured either in each host or in a central configuration file. Dnsmasq supports static and dynamic DHCP leases and BOOTP for network booting of diskless machines.
Comment 1 Jochen Schmitt 2006-04-24 12:57:37 EDT
+ Local build works fine.
+ source tar has the same md5sum as the upstream.
+ Mock build works fine.

- Requires should be:
Requires(post):  /sbin/chkconfig
Requires(post):  /sbin/service
Requires(preun): /sbin/chkconfig
Requires(preun): /sbin/service
- Debuginfo package contains no files.
- Error message when starting services:
Starting dnsmasq: dnsmasq: ISC dhcpd integration not available: set
HAVE_ISC_READER in src/config.h

Thanks for reviewing.  Got some fixes for it.

Spec URL: http://beer.tclug.org/fedora-extras/dnsmasq/dnsmasq.spec
SRPM URL: http://beer.tclug.org/fedora-extras/dnsmasq/dnsmasq-2.30-2.src.rpm

Also uses
http://beer.tclug.org/fedora-extras/dnsmasq/dnsmasq-2.30-fedora-extras.patch .

All aforementioned issues should be resolved.  Let me know.

Built on devel, FC5, FC4, and (after a bit of work) FC3.

Comment 5 Jima 2006-04-27 17:06:28 EDT
The issue in Comment #1 is the result of the default configuration triggering a
deprecated feature in dnsmasq.  The solution the error message suggests
(defining HAVE_ISC_READER) is a hack to re-enable that feature.  The dnsmasq
author asked me quite kindly to not enable the feature, as he'd rather not get
any more users hooked on a feature which will be going away eventually.

The workaround (which you should be doing anyway) is to set dhcp-range and
dhcp-leasefile in the configuration file.

I've released an update (2.30-3) which doesn't have the feature enabled, and
also cleans up my slightly hacked patch situation.  It should be pushed out to
mirrors shortly.
