Subject: [gentoo-dev] kerberos, virtuals, rattling cages

1 (I really don't have time to actively participate on this list right
2 now, but I believe that if I bring it up on b.g.o, I'll be directed
3 here, so...)
5 So I'm playing with net-fs/samba-4.0.3, AD and kerberos, and tried to
6 enable kerberos system-wide on my server.
8 No joy, as net-fs/nfs-utils has an explicit dependency on
9 app-crypt/mit-krb5 (bug 231936) and net-fs/samba-4.0.3 depends on
10 app-crypt/heimdal (for reasons noted in bug 195703, comment 25).
12 Questions:
14 1) If upstream isn't going to support mit-krb5, then use of samba-4.0.3
15 and kerberos demands that things with explicit dependencies on mit-krb5
16 either be fixed or not used at all.
18 I'm the first activity on bug 231936 in two years...could someone please
19 look into that one?
21 2) Is it possible to slot mit-krb5 and heimdal instead of pulling them
22 through a virtual? My suspicion is "no", but I don't know enough about
23 kerberos to say whether or not it would work, even as a hack.
25 I'm sure explicit dependencies on mit-krb5 and heimdal will continue to
26 crop up, so (and forgive the nausea this might cause) it might help to
27 slot mit and heimdal, and have virtual/krb5 depend on the presence of at
28 least one.
