Good idea.

I second that.

Changelog issues with (among others) tkdiff 1:3.08-4

Issues that lintian reports are, in most cases, bugs.  Bugs that you
have fixed should be explicitly described in the changelog.  After all,
lintian reports many different types of bugs; how can we guess which bug
is the one that applies in this case?

Thank you,
Brian

Yes, gnome-terminal forces me to have a useless (I always use the

You can solve that by adding the external address to the loopback interface:

ip a a 192.168.65.5/32 dev lo

An application that really wants to talk to a server of which it _knows_
it's running on the local machine will likely use a Unix socket, not a
TCP/IP one, to connect to that server.

What usually happens when a system is connecting via TCP/IP to the
localhost is not an application using the name 'localhost', but the user
entering that name; thus, it's not hard to think of a user entering the
machine's hostname instead of just 'localhost'. After all, novice users
may not know that the name 'localhost' refers to the local machine...

I strongly second this.

Re: PAM messages on chrooted console

Thanks everyone for your kind help!

Since I am setting this chroot environment as an experimental area
(maybe I'll install sid there), security is not a big concern.
Therefore I used Andreas' solution: modify /etc/init.d/sysklogd to
    SYSLOGD='/var/chroot/dev/log'
and restart syslogd.

I am going to look into the --bind option of mount.

Bug#114398: dbtcp RFP->ITP

retitle 114398 ITP: dbtcp -- A client for the MS Windows ODBC proxy server
thanks

[Please reply to me, Cc'ing the list, as per the M-F-T header].

Hi all!
Just a quick note to say that I've packaged up dbtcp, and am thus taking
over the RFA (#114398). It was pretty fun to package - a PHP4 module
that ostensibly needs to be built in-tree. However, it took a nice
hand-hacked Makefile to make it build out-of-tree, and even then it has
some fun issues.

PHP4 installs to /usr/lib/php4/≤date>, where date is probably the
release date (it's 20020429, currently). I can work out the directory to
install to (php-config --extension-dir), but how should I handle this in
package relationships? If the date changes, php4-dbtcp suddenly becomes
useless - PHP's looking in a different directory for its extensions.

Anyway, the debs are at:
deb http://www.trinity.unimelb.edu.au/~dstone/debian/ dbtcp/
deb-src http://www.trinity.unimelb.edu.au/~dstone/debian/ dbtcp/

Cheers!
:) d

If this is serious, I second your opinion.

Unfortunately, being totally, completely, and absolutely unhinged must
be one of the worse types of mental illness:  You have spent hours
watching them, writing down all your evidence and conjunctures in spiral
notebooks, tried to warn others, and when you finally take extreme
measures to inform everyone of the squirrel invasion plans, they lock
you up.

Poor guy.
