-> debathena / cluster-login-config / broder 15:39 (Evan Broder)

I can't actually spend time on it until this weekend, but the short
story is that the cluster-login-config postinst (and postrm) should
reload gdm and run for i in $(seq 1 6); do initctl (stop|start) tty$i

Should be fixed in r23904 and uploaded to proposed. I didn't add the corresponding changes to a postrm, because there's already precedent for requiring a reboot to undo what the postinst does (e.g. getting sshd running again). Also, you know, laziness.

I'm...not entirely sure how to test this (cough #164 cough). You basically want to run an unattended install, but stop it before it actually installs the Debathena packages, add the proposed codenames, and then install debathena-cluster.

Or maybe it's good enough to move this into production if it doesn't break already installed systems. That, at least, is a lot easier to test.

I forgot to ignore failures in either the gdm reload or the initctls. Should be fixed in r23905, which is now in proposed.

  • Status changed from proposed to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed

This was moved into production a long time ago. Not sure why it wasn't closed.
