Bug#365549: gnucash: Font display problems

Package: gnucash
Version: 1.8.12-8
Severity: normal

If I start GnuCash (same version, but x86) on a remote system via SSH it
uses Courier for the font in the startup dialog but then dies with the
console output below.  When started locally GnuCash appears to start fine
but no text is displayed in the user interface (at least as far as the
"this file is locked" dialog).

The font "-adobe-helvetica-medium-r-normal--*-120-*-*-*-*-*-*" does not support all the required
character sets for the current locale "en_GB"
  (Missing character set "ISO8859-1")
  (Missing character set "ISO8859-1")
Warning: gnucash_style_set_register...(): Cannot load font: -adobe-helvetica-medium-r-normal--*-120-*-*-*-*-*-*

Bug#365550: python-support: fails to configure

Package: python-support
Version: 0.1.1
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

Configuration of python-support 0.2 fails with following:

Unpacking python-support (from .../python-support_0.2_all.deb) ...
Setting up python-support (0.2) ...
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/sbin/update-python-modules", line 169, in ?
    for f in os.listdir(sourcepath):
OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/usr/share/python-support'
dpkg: error processing python-support (--configure):
 subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1
Errors were encountered while processing:
 python-support
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

Apparently something in update-python-modules is pointing to
/usr/share/python-support which is non-existent.  The changelog has some
mention of pointing to /usr/share/python-support so I suspect that the
problem is that this directroy has not been created by the package.

Cheers,

Carlo

Bug#365306: Also need to chmod u-s /usr/lib/amanda/dumper

Another thing to note is that with ssh authentication, its root on the
Amanda host that runs 'amandad -auth=ssh' via ssh'ing to backup on the
client. So, any keys that are created for root on the host, can be
limited to only run amandad -auth=ssh.

ie

/var/backups/.ssh# cat authorized_keys
command="/usr/lib/amanda/amandad
-auth=ssh",no-port-forwarding,no-X11-forwarding,no-agent-forwarding
ssh-dss ....

I'd also like ssh-security enabled. I don't know about
dpkg-statoverride, but it works normally if you pass that. Maybe just a
SSH-HOWTO .

Bug#306496: spamassassin: Bug still exists: "Parsing of undecoded UTF-8 will give garbage when decoding entities..."

Package: spamassassin
Followup-For: Bug #306496

Some UTF-8 HTML messages still gives the error message:

Parsing of undecoded UTF-8 will give garbage when decoding
entities at /usr/share/perl5/Mail/SpamAssassin/HTML.pm line 182.

I can give you example mails on request. They are mostly spams,
so many of them can be posted to the bug tracker in compressed
form.

Problematic mails can be found by training the Bayes filter
and looking for the above error message on standard error.

Yeah, I'm on to it :)

I'm waiting for libxp to propagate for all architectures.  Later today,
maybe.

Yeah, if no one else gets to it sooner, I can drum up a draft patch.

Feel free to beat me to it, anyone :)

Some background.  In release 2.28, upstream man-pages added
sem_* pages.  As noted in the ChagelogL

    These pages supercede and provide a superset of the information
    in the glibc (3thr) "semaphores(3)" manual page.

(Obviously, "supercede" is my point of view.  My pages
do contain more, and more up to date, info.  I wish glibc
could decide on just info or just man pages...)

Cheers,

Michael

Sorry, this seems to be a duplicate of #365403: the same workaround
works for it too.

Bug#365552: dwww: with boa don't make a good 'Other documents' link

Package: dwww
Version: 1.9.92
Severity: normal
Tags: experimental

Hello:

I think that Debian needs a good Help Browser, and Dwww is a good app for
it. Many thanks!!

I tested dwww 1.9.92 from experimental. I install it in a Sarge
environment. For made it, I touch the debian/control file, for change in
the Depends line: menu (>= 2.1.27) for menu (>= 2.1.24) (that is the
version of menu package in Sarge). I says it because it may alter the
results in my environment.

dwww-1.9.92 works so well in Sarge with apache-1.3.33. I test a little bit
it and no find bugs. But with boa-0.94.14rc20-1.2 like web server dwww has
a little bug in the 'Other documents' link.

If you made a search (search emelfm package, for exemp.) and made click in
the 'Other documents' link, with Mozilla it says that "don't find :0"
(badly translated from my spanish localization), and with Dillo "ERROR: dns
can't solve".

The link URL is
http://localhost/cgi-bin/dwww/usr/share/doc/emelfm?type=dir, and it works
well with the Apache web server. But for it to works with Boa, the URL must
be http://localhost/cgi-bin/dwww/usr/share/doc/emelfm/?type=dir (note the
last "/").

Did that already before filing this bug.

I don't think I am, but is there any way to find out about this for
sure?
