Forgotten debug print in samba-winbind code?
Last modified: 2012-10-26 12:13:15 EDT
Whenever I use evolution-ews I see on the console this string (only hightlighted as quoted text):
> could not obtain winbind domain name!
It seems to me as a forgotten debug print and it's kinda annoying, when I see about twenty on the terminal, indicating how many times the binary was called.
halfline pointed me to this grep command:
$ grep "obtain winbind" /usr/*bin*/* 2> /dev/null
Binary file /usr/bin/ntlm_auth matches
Binary file /usr/bin/wbinfo matches
Could it be possible to get rid of the debug string, please?
Do you want to use winbind for evolution ntlm authentication and don't have it running by any chance ?
I do not want to use it :) I mean, it is not used directly by evolution. The debug print shows up when I have enabled evolution-ews account, which is using libsoup, which is using ntlm_auth. Thus the chain is pretty long, and the worse is that this is called from a "low-level" library, shared among many projects.
The message seems to me as a debug print, thus I thought to point it out, thus it could be removed, or conditioned as expected (to be printed only with debugging enabled), otherwise console of evolution is full of these messages after some time of usage of evolution-ews.
I've proposed a patch upstream to silence it in future.
