#2812 closed defect (fixed)

Issues with dbus, ntp, qt

Reported by: Arthur Demchenkov Owned by: blfs-book@…
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: BOOK Version: SVN
Severity: normal Keywords:


1) freeglut:

It depends on mesalib.

2) dbus:

2.a) make check fails when run in Midnight Commander's subshell

2.b) initscript failes because it doesn't use pidfile. Right script is in attachment.

3) cairo:

3.a) Recommended dependencies:

xcb-util-0.3.0 and pixman-0.12.0. - pixman is installed during xorg-lib installation, xcb-util shouldn't be external link, as it's covered in the book

3.b) Optional dependencies:

... libxcb-1.1 (also requires xcb-util) ... - these links are external, but installation is covered in the book

4) ntp:

Initscript hangs for about a minute when starting.

The solution:

  1. remove 'ntpd -gqx'
  1. change 'loadproc /usr/sbin/ntpd' to 'loadproc /usr/sbin/ntpd -g'

Right script is in attachment.

5) qt3:

Why don't add MANDB_MAP entry in man_db.conf?

6) qt4:

There's no man pages installed. Why do we need MANDATORY_MANPATH set?

7) samba:

Installed Directories: /var/lib/samba - not installed. It should be created manually

1 and 3 are fixed. 2a is a problem with MC, out of my realm since I don't use it. 2b and 4 I may revisit at a later time. 5 and 6 I no longer use with the addition of Brasero to BLFS (Gnome-2.26), and 7 will be covered by the samba update. Removing myself from the ticket so that somebody who uses QT can fix the remainder of the issues...however I may take the ticket again at a later time if and when I get to KDE-3/4.

Summary: Issues with freeglut, dbus, cairo, ntp, qt and sambaIssues with dbus, ntp, qt

The /var/lib/samba dir is created during installation. That only leaves #'s 2,4,5,6 and we can close the ticket.

#6 taken care of by removing the mention to the man file stuff as there are no man files in Qt4

Only #'s 2,4,5 remaining

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

#4 was addressed by Bruce with a recent update to the init script.

#2a Not to worried about, and there is a mention of the issue in the book.

#2b This one is a "Worksforme" deal. I don't have any problems with the existing init script.

#5 fixed by adding the required lines to the man_db.conf update.

Closing. If there is anything that was not properly addressed, please open an new individual ticket for each issues. Global tickets are hard to keep up with.
