Description Need Real Name 2002-07-23 23:22:59 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.0.0) Gecko/20020530

Description of problem:
Config info for afpd in /etc/atalk/afpd.conf is ignored as the program
looks in /usr/etc/netatalk.

$ strings /usr/sbin/afpd | grep afpd.conf

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Change config in /etc/atalk/afpd.conf
2. Run /etc/rc.d/init.d/atalk restart

Actual Results:  Configured Servers fail to appear

Expected Results:  Well they should be registered!

Additional info:

The fix is to add --with-pkgconfdir=/etc/atalk to the spec file and
rebuild the package (see below).

CFLAGS="$RPM_OPT_FLAGS -fsigned-char" ./configure --prefix=%{_prefix} \
        --with-cracklib --with-pam --with-shadow --with-tcp-wrappers \
        --with-ssl --with-flock-locksi --with-uams-path=%{_libdir} \

Alternatively add the -F /etc/atalk/afpd.conf to the init script.  Note that the
-F switch is not in the man page.
