Installer bugs, features and some security features
Last modified: 2015-01-07 18:38:32 EST
Some features were missing from installer. These misses
might have some security implications:
- (Bug) In packet selection it is not mentioned which
packages should be recommended and which packages are
installed automatically wheter user wants is or not
- (Bug) Installer automatically put a very wrong address to
primary nameserver field. In previous versions this
address appeared to gateway. Eg. IP is 18.104.22.168 then
installer decides that prim. nameserver is 22.214.171.124.
This .1 used to be a 'default gateway' in previuos
- (Security) What has happened to 'select daemons to start'
at the end of installation? Wrong asnwer is Interactive
bootup. This selection should be able to make at
installation time. For example if I happen to install eg.
sendmail and I don't want it to start at boot. How can this
- (Security) There is no way to disable the interactive
startup. This is a horrible feature if your console is not
all the time behind locked doors.
You can disable the interactive stuff.
At the end of /etc/sysconfig/init:
# Set to anything other than 'no' to allow hotkey interactive
Also, you can run ntsysv (or an equivalent) after the install.
We're working on integrating that into the install (doing this
before installation is non-trivial.)
