Bug#412937: /sbin/update-grub is run by default by kernel postrm if it exists, and complains

Package: kernel-package
Version: 10.066
Severity: normal

Unpacking replacement linux-image-2.6.18-4-686 ...
Running postrm hook script /sbin/update-grub.
You shouldn't call /sbin/update-grub. Please call /usr/sbin/update-grub instead!

Although my /etc/kernel-image.conf is standard (postrm_hook = update-grub),
this message is displayed because the postrm, rather than using `which` to
see if the program exists, manually looks for unqualified executables in its
own hardcoded path, which has /sbin before /usr/sbin. So it finds the
transitional update-grub first.

I suppose that this could be avoided by, if a nonstandard path has to be
used for some reason (which I can't fathom), at least searching for
it in the standard order (/usr/sbin before /sbin).

Bug#411777: mbind(2): there is no "end" parameter

tags 411777 fixed-upstream
thanks

fixed for 2.44

Salut Samuel,

> mbind(2) says in the ERRORS section, for EINVAL: ``end was less than
> start''. But there is no "end" parameter. This part should probably be
> just dropped.

You are right that there is a problem.  But the fix isn't quite what you
suggest.  There is kernel code for this syscall that looks like this

end = start + len;

if (end < start)
    return -EINVAL.

So the text in question has now been changed to read:

    or start + len was less than start

Thanks.

Michael

Hi Justin,

Was this subtle humour? ;-)

This seems already to have been fixed in some post 2.39 upstream release.

I do not even see the problem in 2.39.  Please provide more info.

I do not even see the problem in 2.39.  Please provide more info.

Bug#368251: winbind NSS, omitted groups

Hi.

I just noticed this bug report when looking through to solve another problem of mine.
I too encountered this problem in the past but it was fairly easy to fix.
You need to make sure you have the following settings in your /etc/samba/smb.conf file:

	winbind enum groups = yes
	winbind enum users = yes

These used to be the default values in Samba 3.0.14 that I was previously using, but the defaults had changed
when I moved to Samba 3.0.24.
Once you add these clauses (and I think restart samba and winbind) then the 'groups' command will start
returning the secondary groups again.

Regards,
