#475 fixed Talk to save about de-supporting "setup save" and nuking most of /mit/save/bin jdreed jdreed

Reported by jdreed, 14 years ago.


"setup save" only works for tcsh users, and makes all kinds of assumptions about our printing infrastructure. /mit/save/bin is full of bitrotted csh scripts and old copies of "lpr2" which are actively harmful these days.

We should talk to save about desupporting "setup save" and nuking most of /mit/save/bin. If there's any functionality that's missing after the cleanup, we can talk about providing it in Debathena directly.

#476 fixed Follow-up with Kernel on ENOEXEC/ENOENT for libc5 binaries jdreed jdreed

Reported by jdreed, 14 years ago.


This continues #219 and ATN-41.

Geoff sent a patch to, which was rejected. Relevant threads are and

It's fairly clear from the POSIX spec (see the "ERRORS" section of that the current kernel behavior of ENOENT when /lib/ doesn't exist is wrong, and that it should be ENOEXEC or EINVAL.

Note the paragraph under RATIONALE which begins "One common historical implementation is that the execl(), execv(), execle(), and execve() functions return an [ENOEXEC] error...".

We should follow up and point out that the current behavior does not conform to POSIX. They may or may not decide to care.

#478 fixed mh-smail calls send -msgid, which doesn't work geofft

Reported by geofft, 14 years ago.


As pointed out by an OLC user, if I run emacs -e mh-smail, type in a message into the provided fields, and run C-c C-c to send the e-mail, I get

spost: -msgid unknown
send: message not delivered to anyone

We can either upgrade nmh to a version that supports the -msgid option (which adds a Message-ID: header to the outgoing mail), or wrap /usr/lib/debathena-nmh/spost to drop the -msgid option, or figure out how to make mh-smail not use the -msgid option.
