2. lenny status
2.1 lenny status: #1409: Iceweasel does not save exception rule for
<h01ger> according to the ticket, there is still work to do for #1409
<pere> I suspect it is working now, but an error is logged during
installation anyway. The error is from snakeoil-on-ice executed within
ltsp-make-client, and it fail because http://www is unavailable. I
suspect the check in snakeoil-on-ice simply is checking things in the
wrong order or something.
2.2 status lenny: 1408: Diskless Workstation not working yet
Bug #1408 seem to be the dumping ground for everything diskless related.
The original problem was ldap connection related. But dvd installs
should now be working.
Diskless workstations when using netinstall on real hard ware has meen
working the last 3 weeks. There are strong indications that this bug is
only related to install on vbox.
debalance will check if #1408 is still there tomorrow
2.3 status lenny: 1138: We need to check and act on the non-free
packages on the DVD
h01ger said he was going to look at this (pere, 19:21:05)
I created a wiki page to keep information on what we figured out for
each non-free package. (pere, 19:21:34)
2.4 status lenny: 1415: Cannot unlock KDE lock session
needs investigation, afaics
There was a bug (#534714) about missing /etc/pam.d/kde in Debian which
caused the same behaviour.
The scenario of log-in working, but unlocking a session not, is when
/etc/pam.d/kdm is there, but /etc/pam.d/kde is not
21:21 < klausade> aah. must test screenlock.... that doesn't work.
2.5 status lenny: 1412: Errors when building the LTSP chroot are not
reported to the user
ltsp-build-client failed to return an error, and thus the udeb failed to
pass the error on.
doesn't detect ltsp-build-client failures "every time"
the bug being that it doesn't detect ltsp-build-client failures
Concludes #1412 still needs some work
Lets copy an image tonite, test it, and call it alpha3 tomorrow?
* h01ger will try to find a good moment to make an alpha3
If alpha3 looks promising, i'd like to see rc1 RSN. Where looks
promising = not absolutly unreleasable.
5. any other business
5.1 any other business: should we modify lwat to allow editing passwords
No agreement how we should deal with lwat + changing passwords. Needs
more discussion, probably on the list.
<OleA> update the wiki about extending the range of statics?
<h01ger> OleA, considering that the documentation for etch was
(almost: a lot) worse, i dont think the documentation is a blocker per
se. rather the opposite
5.2 AOB: should we test stable-proposed-updates by default in the CD image?
6. next meeting

Meeting ended at 19:59:48 UTC.
