Description Wiktor Wandachowicz 2005-06-18 12:54:19 UTC
I upgraded Gnome 2.8 to Gnome 2.10 on June 10th and the network-admin is gone
somehow (and I really like this tool!). I checked the source tarball for
gnome-system-tools package and it seems that the code for network-admin looks to
be in place. However, after emerging the gnome-system-tools-1.2.0-r1 package,
network-admin is not built.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge gnome
2. emerge -av --oneshot gnome-system-tools

Actual Results:  
There are several programs added to the system after emerging this package:

# qpkg -l gnome-system-toolsapp-admin/gnome-system-tools-1.2.0-r1 *

But there is no /usr/bin/network-admin there. And in Gnome 2.8 there was one!

Expected Results:  
I checked the
file, and there is a following part:

# --enable-disks is not (still) supported for Gentoo
G2CONF="${G2CONF} --enable-boot --enable-services --disable-network"

if ! use nfs && ! use samba; then
        G2CONF="${G2CONF} --disable-shares"

The strange thing is that --disable-network switch. Effectively it creates the
following entry in the package's Makefile:

VERSION = 1.2.0
gnomelocaledir = ${prefix}/${DATADIRNAME}/locale
interfacesdir = /usr/share/gnome-system-tools/interfaces
mkdir_p = mkdir -p -- .
pixmapsdir = /usr/share/gnome-system-tools/pixmaps
scriptsdir =

boot_SUBDIR = boot

#network_SUBDIR = network

services_SUBDIR = services

time_SUBDIR = time

users_SUBDIR = users

#disks_SUBDIR = disks

shares_SUBDIR = shares

Just look at this #network_SUBDIR = network line. Now I understand that using
this ebuild there's no chance that network-admin would be built.

I expect that the ebuild file should be updated, and the "--disable-network"
switch should be removed.

Looks like an [intentional?] overlook in ebuild file, resulting in a lessened
functionality regression. Why is that "--disable-network" switch needed here?
(I can understand missing "--enable-disks" switch, but this one???)
