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

Reported by jdreed, 13 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.

#477 worksforme debathena-lprng cron job causes daily mail with error to be sent jdreed kchen

Reported by kchen, 13 years ago.


I get daily mail from two Debathena machines with:

/etc/cron.daily/debathena-lprng: 2010-01-06-06:28:43.020 abra Init_tempfile: bad tempdir '/var/spool/lpd/%P'

One is a jaunty machine, and one is a hardy machine. (Hmm... actually, I haven't gotten mail from the jaunty machine in half a month, but it's possible MIT is eating it. I'll focus this bug report on the hardy machine, which is still sending me mail.)

kchen@abra:~$ ls -l /etc/cron.daily/debathena-lprng -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 1241 2008-06-17 13:50 /etc/cron.daily/debathena-lprng

It looks like debathena-lprng-no-server-config is supposed to remove the cron job. One thing I just noticed is:

kchen@abra:~$ dpkg -S debathena-lprng-no-server-config | grep diversion diversion by debathena-lprng-no-server-config from: /etc/cron.daily/lprng diversion by debathena-lprng-no-server-config to: /usr/share/debathena-lprng-no-server-config/etc++cron.daily++lprng

Should /etc/cron.daily/debathena-lprng be diverted in addition to /etc/cron.daily/lprng? Or not installed? (I don't actually know what the cron job is supposed to do... I just know it sends me mail with an error every day.)

#483 fixed auto-update should deal with conffile conflicts on cluster jdreed broder

Reported by broder, 13 years ago.


Right now, if anything triggers a dpkg conffile conflict, auto-update will hang indefinitely. Not the best failure mode.

On cluster machines, since we are the sysadmin, we should be passing -o Dpkg::Options::=--force-confnew to aptitude.
