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

Reported by kchen, 14 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.)

#562 fixed Debathena restart of CUPS during upgrade sleeps for 2 minutes kchen

Reported by kchen, 14 years ago.


It's non-intuitive that:

Setting up debathena-cupsys-config (1.9~ubuntu8.04) ... Status of Common Unix Printing System: cupsd is running.

  • Stopping Common Unix Printing System: cupsd

[ OK ]

  • Starting Common Unix Printing System: cupsd

[ OK ]

just waits here for two minutes in the middle of an apt-get upgrade. I control-C'd it several times, before finally digging into the source to see what's going on.

#603 fixed edsc should deal with unexpected discuss errors kchen

Reported by kchen, 14 years ago.


My .meetings file contains entries including:

1:0:313:spatula-city.MIT.EDU:/var/spool/discuss/dates:dates,dates: 1:0:0:dragons-lair.MIT.EDU:/var/spool/discuss/generic:Generic,generic:

When I run command-line discuss, I get: discuss: RPC server too old while authenticating to discuss server

for these meetings. doesn't have any problem with generic, but reports "Connection reset by peer (104)" for dates. (I have no idea what dates is anyway.)

In any case, this seems to cause problems for edsc. When I start up emacs and run M-x discuss, I get:

error in process filter: End of file during parsing

and I am unable to use discuss in emacs. If I remove these two meetings from my .meetings file, I am able to successfully use discuss in emacs.
