#226 fixed Investigate state of open-vm-tools under Jaunty and determine whether to fully support them at this time jdreed jdreed

Reported by jdreed, 15 years ago.


This is a continuation of ATN-42, in which vmware tools (and open-vm-tools) was horribly broken under Hardy and Intrepid with recent kernels.

We believe everything except LP 332323 has been fixed in Jaunty.

We need to do the following:

  • Confirm that LP 306835 and 302226 are no longer an issue in Jaunty.
  • Test Debathena on Jaunty as a guest with open-vm-tools
  • Document what works and what doesn't, and make a determination about support.
  • Decide that anything older than Jaunty is not Fully Supported(tm) as a VMware Guest with open-vm-tools

History is available in ATN-42, which is archived at for those without Jira access.

#227 fixed Improve semantics of attach/detach and add jdreed

Reported by jdreed, 15 years ago.


After discussion on Athena10 list and via IM, broder has proposed amendments to attach and detach as they're currently working on debathena/Athena10:

(a) Change liblocker so that the attachtab has a concept of per-user mounts (i.e. in addition to tracking which users have a locker mounted, it can also say "broder has /afs/.sipb/project/whatever mounted at /mit/whatever, but price has /usr/local/whatever mounted at /mit/whatever")

(b) Write PyLocker?

(c) Change pyHesiodFS to use PyLocker? instead of keeping its own cache and additionally, alter it to present a different view onto /mit for each user. (i.e. I would actually *see* /mit/whatever symlinked to /afs/.sipb/project/whatever, while if Greg looked at /mit/whatever, he'd see a symlink to /usr/local/whatever)

  • This is actually not that hard once parts (a) and (b) are done.

PyFUSE has fuse.FuseGetContext?(), which returns the UID, GID, and PID of the process making the given request.

This would allow us to bring back attach -e, and even allow it to be run by non-root users.

Also add -r should remove the locker from the Search path even if it is not attached rather than complaining of a non-attached locker.

This improved interface should be implemented and tested to see if it is better, and if it is better, it should become the default.

#229 fixed CUPS should not scan the local network for printers jdreed geofft

Reported by geofft, 15 years ago.


CUPS by default scans the local network for printers. While this seems at first glance to be either good or neutral. it's the case that lots of users have their personal laptops configured (incorrectly, arguably, but it still happens) to print to Athena printers and then share their local configuration of that printer.

For example, is seeing both a "tree-eater" (which I've locally configured because it's Kerberized; see ATN-28) and a "tree_eater", which someone in the dorm has set up. Users should not click an Athena cluster printer's name in the GUI and get some random laptop as their print server.
