Description of problem: The dhcdbd uses nmblookup but does not find it on the
KDE live CD
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot the Fedora 7 test 4 live CD
2. Observe console messages
Starting dhcdbd:sh: nmblookup: command not found
No error messages
I guess dhcdbd needs either to (a) only invoke nmblookup if it's there or (b)
if it's really needed (odd, I have no need of SMB on a 15+ host network)
introduce a dependency to bring it in.
Attach the script you are talking about. dhcdbd has nothing to do with
nmblookup and it's not in the init script.
Sorry, it was a case of "post hoc, ergo propter hoc" misattribution. The
actual component involved is LISa, i.e. kdenetwork-3.5.6-3.fc7, which starts a
few steps before dhcdbd in the KDE live image; this tricked me into believing
it was actually dhcdbd triggering the behavior indirectly.
Some LISa binary blindly starts nmblookup without ever checking if it's
actually there; the resulting error messages appear on the console, at fixed
intervals. They are not visibile when running under X. This behavior can be
turned off in /etc/lisarc or through the LISa panel in the Local Network
Browsing panel of KDE's control center.
This turned out to be a cosmetic bug; the best bet for FC7 is probably to ship
with recourse to nmblookup disabled in /etc/lisarc, as it is easily enabled in
the GUI when needed.
it's now fixed in kdenetwork-3_5_6-4_fc7. Thanks for your report.
