Bug#178944: discover: Fix still needed for sarge.



Package: discover
Version: 1.1-6
Followup-For: Bug #178944

I'm reporting this from a woody system but I have just looked on a
testing(sarge) system and /etc/init.d/discover contains 2 instances of
the "cut" command.

"cut" in sarge is still in /usr/bin/ 

The first instance (in discover_1.5-2_i386.deb) is:
ARGUMENTS=$(sed "s/#.*$//" $CONFFILE | grep "^boot " | cut -c6-)

This could be replaced by something like:
ARGUMENTS=$(sed "s/#.*$//" $CONFFILE | grep "^boot " | sed -e's/^.....//')

The second instance is:
if cut -d" " -f1 /proc/modules | grep -q "^${module}\$" ; then

This could be replaced by something like:
if cat /proc/modules |(while read col1 junk ; do echo $col1)|grep -q "^${module}\$" ; then
 -OR-
if cat /proc/modules | sed -e's/ [:digit:]* .*//' |grep -q "^${module}\$" ; then


"sed" lives in /bin/ so should be OK!

I hope this helps!
