Bug in distributed-net initscript stops cron
A warning to anyone who's installed the latest version of distributed-net
from woody: It has a thinko I added in the initfile which causes it to
fail on restarting - which the logrotate file does, so the entirety of cron
grinds to a halt. Anyone with the new version of distributed-net installed
most likely will notice cron waiting on /etc/init.d/distributed-net restart.
Just kill the script, and edit /etc/init.d/distributed.net as follows:
--- oldinit Mon Nov 27 16:27:38 2000
+++ distributed-net Mon Nov 27 16:28:58 2000

# distributed-net has to do housekeeping. It doesn't
# always shut down in time. thus the sleep.
while start-stop-daemon --quiet --stop --signal 0 \
- --user daemon --oknodo \
+ --user daemon \
--name distributed-net \
This will fix the problem. An updated version of distributed-net can also
be found at http://gemini.woot.net/~hosehead/packages/distributed-net
(not aptable, sorry).
Could I also have a sponsor (I've asked Joey Hess too much) upload these
to woody? Thanks!
