Bug#584434: krb5-kdc: Should it start before gdm/kdm/etc and after DNS servers?
I ran into a problem in Debian Edu, where kdm refused to log in a user
with its password in Kerberos after boot. I believe it is caused by
krb5-kdc starting after kdm is started, as making sure krb5-kdc start
before kdm seem to solve the issue.
This make me suspect krb5-kdc should start before the display
managers, and thus its init.d script should include
# X-Start-Before: $x-display-manager
The alternative is for each *dm script to list krb5-kdc in its
should-start header, as requested in #584434, and it seem like a
better idea to solve it once and for all in krb5-kdc.
Also, should krb5-kdc need a working DNS server, it should include
$named in its should-start header, to make sure it start after the DNS
server is operational also when the DNS server is on the local
