#141 worksforme Firefox extension should update application defaults? broder

Reported by broder, 13 years ago.

Description

Regardless of how the PDF reader debate plays out, there will be a particular PDF reader that Debathena prefers.

If it's not acroread, we should consider upgrading people's Firefox profile defaults when they use Debathena.

We should figure out a good way to do this - preferably one that doesn't break acroread under Athena, and also allows users to change the defaults back.

Something akin to a .generation file within the Firefox profile may be a good start here, but I'm not sure what the whole implementation would look like.

#146 worksforme unauthenticated 'logout' fails to log out user kaduk

Reported by kaduk, 13 years ago.

Description

If I 'kdestroy;unlog' before running logout from a terminal window, the 'logout' command appears to not actually do anything.

jdreed says he has seen this behavior as well, but it may be intermittent, or dependent on something non-obvious.

#160 worksforme Live CD needs improvement for general consumption xavid jdreed

Reported by jdreed, 13 years ago.

Description

I finally got around to playing with the Live CD. It's a great start, but it needs some improvement before it's ready for general consumption:

  • Networking: Logins fail miserably if the machine isn't registered. I realize this is a function of our environment, but since we're aiming this CD at new Debathena users, we should probably figure out a way to do something clever if the machine isn't registered for DHCP (a zenity dialog would be fine, prompting the user for a static IP would be awesome). What would be clever would be if the livecd did some sort of check before starting the greeter. In a dhreg situation, all DNS requests return an A record for 10.72.0.47, which is nic.mit.edu's other interface. So perhaps the livecd could try to fetch, say, http://debathena.mit.edu/livecd.txt, and parse the output. If it it matches what is expected, then they have network. If it's a 404 error, or some other page, it means they're actually talking to nic.mit.edu. And if it can't connect, then there's no networking at all.
  • Partitioner in GUI installer: The partitioner does not understand LVM. As most Linux distributions have been defaulting to LVM for a while, this means a user cannot, for example, replace an RHEL installation without nuking their entire volgroup. I realize this is an upstream problem, but this is kind of a dealbreaker, since the tty mode partitioner (available via a PXE install) understands LVM just fine. The user should at least be informed of this before trying to install. Perhaps the "install" utility on the desktop can be wrapped with something which warns the user what will and won't work.
  • Installation choices: Ideally, we'd give users the option of installing everything they can install from the installer script (except -cluster). However, in the short term, -standard and -workstation are fine. When we rename stuff, we should figure out if the latter will still mean -workstation or if we should change it to -graphical-login.
