#455 wontfix Inventory WRW apps on Athena and determine how they print jdreed jdreed

Reported by jdreed, 14 years ago.


We need to inventory the WRW apps, and determine how they print. The goal is to figure out:

  • If they use GTK or Java
  • if they allow a user to specify a command line (and if so, is it lpr or lp)
  • if they hardcode any paths to printing commands
  • what their default output format is (PDF, PS, etc).
  • anything else we think is relevant.

Going forward, we come up with a set of guidelines, and new 3partysw on Athena has to conform to those guidelines (maybe to the point where a program cannot be installed on Athena if it hardcodes /usr/bin/lp).

Note that this will be difficult, because we need to look at both the Ubuntu packages and any locker software.

If we encounter printing stupidity in Ubuntu packages, we should be sure to file a bug upstream.

#468 fixed Can we drop a force-update and reconfigure-network script in /usr/share/recovery-mode/options/ ? jdreed jdreed

Reported by jdreed, 14 years ago.


/usr/share/recovery-mode/options is what gets presented to the user when they choose "recovery mode" at the grub menu. Hotline notes there's no way to force an update now.

Can we dump a shell script in /usr/share/recover-mode/options that forces an update and then a "real" reboot? (a kexec reboot occasionally will end up back in recovery mode, which is not what we want)

And when we have our debathena-change-the-ip-address-of-this-cluster-machine pony, that should go in the recovery-mode menu too.

I'll note that naming them "athena-update" and "athena-network" will cause them to appear at the top of the list (it's sorted alphabetically) which is desirable.

#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.
