#898 duplicate discuss doesn't support building shared libraries mitchb

Reported by mitchb, 13 years ago.


srsly? We should embrace the 90's or something. Anyway, in as much as we want to be an upstream, only being able to build static libs conflicts with some other distros' philosophies.

#908 duplicate accept hostnames instead of IP address in installer geofft

Reported by geofft, 13 years ago.


I kind of want to be able to enter e.g. "yaz-pistachio" or "w20-575-10" or whatever in the installer instead of needing to go to another machine to look up the IP. The installer should resolve against MIT's DNS servers.

#920 duplicate Prevent users from doing stupid things with PATH jdreed

Reported by jdreed, 13 years ago.


There's a bad snippet of code (that appears to be from 6.170) going around that encourages users to do this:

setenv PATH .:${JAVA_HOME}

And of course all the login scripts fail and they can't log in (because gnome-session isn't in PATH). After .environment and .cshrc.mine (or their bash equivalents) are sourced in the Athena dotfiles, we should sanity-check path and make sure /bin and /usr/bin are in there. At that point, we have two options:

  • append them to $PATH (frankly, I can't think of a legitimate reason to have /usr/bin and /bin not present in your PATH at all -- I can think of reasons for them to be at the end, but not absent)
  • Popup a zenity dialog telling the user that they're Wrong(tm) and pointing them at a Hermes article.
