#143 closed defect (fixed)

Ubuntu packages are broken because of non-existing /usr/libexec or /usr/local/libexec dirs

Reported by: blackhole123 Owned by: Antoine Martin
Priority: critical Milestone:
Component: Global Keywords: Ubuntu bug crash


/usr/libexec and /usr/local/libexec do not (and should not, I suppose) exist under a standard Ubuntu install, and yet the packages contain references to them.

In particular, replacing them by /usr/lib/ and /usr/local/lib in

/usr/lib/python2.6/winswitch/utils/ at lines 126 and 128 (+/- 1) is needed for the server to start.

oops, didn't re-test the server on debian specifically after the libexec change...
i'll re-spin the debs shortly.

for the record: i'm with redhat on this one, the excuses i've read for not having libexec on debian sound like pedantic "standard compliance" posturing rather than real thought out technical concepts.

The DEBs I re-built now fallback to using /usr/lib if the distro does not support /usr/libexec. (see r3626 and r3624)
Works for me on Ubuntu 10.10
