I have a page ready and will commit. Please, check it is written properly and if the instructions are correct. Please, Armin, have a look, because I have tried to reproduce a part of your posts to Dan.

Hopefully, I will not need to revert the whole thing.

Is there a way to move all discussion from #4520 here, reopen this one and close the other one as duplicate?

comment:4 by Armin K, 9 years ago

The ticket is rather for what it says - to split the instructions that shouldn't be there to their correct locations - openssh and sudo pages.

comment:5 by Fernando de Oliveira, 9 years ago

And this one asks exactly that. Worse yet, you are named in the description. Why did you not reply here?

comment:6 by Armin K, 9 years ago

How would I know? I don't really follow everything now.

Sorry, in thunderbird, the link always comes broken.

Replying to [http://wiki.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/ticket/4454?replyto=1#comment:1 bdubbs@…:

I agree that the building and configuring of ssh-askpass should be in

the ssh page, but this is a complicated scenario. We need ssh, sudo, and gparted working together to run the program as a regular user.

OK.

As far as 'which' goes, the package *is* mentioned in the text.

However, I'd prefer to incorporate 'type -pa pkexec' instead.

Thanks, that worked fine. It is my first encounter with it.

Have been thinking about this. I would suggest that Armin send a patch here to fix it and myself or preferably somebody else would take it and commit, after possible discussions.

Description from duplicate ticket #4520: "Gparted-0.17.0 contains instructions that should belong to other package"

First of all, it isn't clear to me why does GParted page contain instructions for building a software from OpenSSH source?

Second, these instructions belong to the OpenSSH page, with deps and explanations on why they are necessary or what not.

Furthermore, gparted_polkit script uses "which", but the package isn't listed as a dependency or even mentioned at all.

First, perhaps.

Second: no. It is a completely different package.

Third: clearly invalid.

So, what to do?

First: either remove completely, or create a new package ssh-askpass. Or understand the instructions as, eg, the ones for GLU, in MESA, or some "docs" that need download, perhaps configure, but needs make and make install, after the real package is installed. Anyway, this already takes care of "second".

Third: if some modification can be done is a question of preference: remove completely, or s/which/type/ (thanks Bruce) and rename the configuration file. And simplify the script, although the way it is is more robust.

I will not reply to any comment by the rude man.

Thanks for all comments.

Tried to be as close as possible to the comments.

Please spend a time reading to correct anything wrong, including definitions, commands, tags, English.

Hopefully fixed at r12536.

Leaving open for a couple of days, until fixes are included.
