Hello Steven,

Steven Shiau a écrit :
When I inspect the code of sbin/drblsrv, I see the following lines:

# Source DRBL setting
. /opt/drbl/conf/drbl.conf

I will write a script to modify such lines (in any script) into

# Source DRBL setting
. /etc/drbl/drbl.conf

Do you think that such a general change might provide a consistent set
of scripts?
I believe so. Once you finalize that, we will change that in the newer

As you agree, I applied the changes, and uploaded the release 1.10.31-2
to Debian.

It should be available shortly at

Please can you check whether this release provides at least something
usable? I shall be able to make simple checks later when things will be
stabilized. However I fear major inconsistencies at the beginning.
Happy new year!
I did some tests on the latest sid:
steven@sid:~$ sudo apt-get install drbl
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
The following extra packages will be installed:
ash ipcalc libcrypt-passwdmd5-perl mtools syslinux syslinux-common wakeonlan
Suggested packages:
  floppyd dosfstools
The following NEW packages will be installed:
  ash drbl ipcalc libcrypt-passwdmd5-perl mtools syslinux syslinux-common

Need to get 4,119 kB of archives.
After this operation, 12.3 MB of additional disk space will be used.
The installation is OK. However, when running "drblsrv -i", it gave this error:
steven@sid:~$ sudo drblsrv -i
/usr/sbin/drblsrv: line 32: /opt/drbl/sbin/drbl-functions: No such file or directory

Therefore you have to change the above line to
. /usr/share/drbl/sbin/drbl-functions

By the way, there should be some dependency from drbl to parclone, isn't
Yes, definitely.
The required packages are mentioned in /etc/drbl/drbl.conf, they are described by these variables:

One thing occurred to me is, after you rewrite everything, what's the best method I adopt that in the unstable DRBL? Now the version is 1.10.77-1drbl, and it is much different from 1.10.31-2.

Thanks again.

Best regards,			Georges.
