#13 closed defect (fixed)

[patch] wrong entry in /etc/services

Reported by: Bodo Meißner <bodo@…> Owned by: somebody
Priority: major Component: debian
Version: 3.1.2 Keywords:


I downloaded the source package as written on and created the Debian package. I installed the package on Ubuntu lucid.

The entry in /etc/services created by the postinst script was wrong:

-e pxeconfigd 6611/tcp # pxe config daemon

This problem results from variations of the echo commands integrated in different shells.

One option to work around this problem is to call some echo commands and check the output to determine the correct syntax. (Done by Autoconf configure scripts.)

I fixed the problem by calling /bin/echo instead of echo. See attached patch.
