ejabberd rpm is missing ejabberdctl tool
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:38 EST
Description of problem:
All of the offical ejabberd documentation assumes you have a tool called
ejabberdctl, see for example http://ejabberd.jabber.ru/jabberd1-to-ejabberd .
However, this file is not present in the rpm from Fedora Extras for either fc5
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
1.1.1-9.fc5 and 1.1.1-9.fc6
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install ejabberd
2. Try to use ejabberdctl in a context where you would expect to be able to
(e.g., as root with $PATH set appropriately)
Command not found
Command is executed
The file is a simple shell script wrapper around an Erlang program
(/usr/lib64/ejabberd-1.1.1/ebin/ejabberd_ctl.beam); this latter file is present
in the rpm. It's possible to use it via erl, but the syntax is awkward - it's
easier to just pull the script out of the SRPM.
The same problem is still in the current release: ejabberd-1.1.3-1
Any chance this tool can be included. Why is it missing from the rpm anyway?
ejabberd-1.1.3-6.fc7 has been pushed to the Fedora 7 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
ejabberd-1.1.3-6.fc7 has been pushed to the Fedora 7 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
