Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 436031
Service does not start
Last modified: 2008-03-05 16:31:33 EST
Description of problem:
When invoking "service mediatomb start" on a non-English installation, the start
fails and an error is reported.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up a non-English Fedora
2. Install mediatomb
3. Try to start the service
An error is reported and the service fails to start. On a German installation,
the error is: "Applying multicast settings to eth1... Starting mediatomb:
mediatomb: Diese Option benötigt ein Argument -- »i«"
The service starts successfully.
The issue is caused by /etc/init.d/mediatomb, line 41, where ifconfig is invoked
and the output is grepped against "inet addr". On a German installation, the
appropriate ifconfig line is "inet Adresse", so the grep won't match anything.
The line should be language independent.
Can you try the one in updates-testing being version 0.11 and see if that works
Yes, 0.11 works. Thank you! :-)
