#164 fixed installer should know about apt-release clusterinfo amb broder

Reported by broder, 15 years ago.


Soon, hopefully, machines in various Moira clusters around campus will have "production", "proposed", and/or "development" values for the "apt-release" key in clusterinfo.

The Debathena installer script should somehow know about this field, and should use it to frob /etc/apt/sources.list.d/debathena.list appropriately at install time.

This allows us to test how a system handles being installed with the packages in -proposed (or -development).

This one is a little trickier than #163 because we don't have debathena-clusterinfo or debathena-getcluster installed when /etc/apt/sources.list.d/debathena.list is written.

It may be that we want to install debathena-getcluster, find out the clusterinfo, and then re-generate /etc/apt/sources.list.d/debathena.list, but even this seems slightly non-ideal, as for a small period packages will only be pulled from production.

#167 wontfix debathena-lert-server binds only to localhost broder

Reported by broder, 15 years ago.


debathena-lert-server uses gethostbyname(uname().nodename) as the address to bind to. Unfortunately, on most Ubuntu systems, this works out to being instead of the actual IP address, thanks to Ubuntu's /etc/hosts hacks.

More fun, the krb4 code needs the destination address of incoming packets for the encryption of the reply, so we can't simply switch to listening on INADDR_ANY with no other changes.

I see two options:

  1. Change the code to use recvmsg instead of recvfrom, in which case you can get at the destination address of the incoming packets at the expense of substantially increased complexity. See for an example of how to do this.
  1. Tear out the krb4 code. The krb5 protocol was introduced in 2002, and it seems pretty unlikely that krb4 clients are still around. It's already nicely conditionalized out so that it'll build on squeeze.
#169 fixed Live CD adjustments for debathena-login-graphical xavid broder

Reported by broder, 15 years ago.


I assume that the Live CD wants to run debathena-login-graphical, but install debathena-workstation.

This is just to track that that gets dealt with.
