SL7 Project: F20 component testing

F20 has been abandoned in favour of EL7. See EL7Components for a more up to date list.

For each local package in lcfg_sl6_lcfg we list the current F20 status - ported, needs work, not yet tackled, etc. Key:

  • Yes / Done It seems to function. It's configured and available for F20.
  • TODO It needs work.
  • Things in italics weren't in SL6 but are needed for F20.
  • Crossed out things No will never work on F20 and will not be ported.

Category "core"

lcfg-logserver Yes / Done  
lcfg-ngeneric Yes / Done  
lcfg-om Yes / Done blog: om access for non-root users

Category "core-prereq"

perl-W3C-SAX-XmlParser Yes / Done This will be obsoleted by the v4 LCFG client.
perl-W3C-Util-Basekit Yes / Done This will be obsoleted by the v4 LCFG client.

Category "standard"

lcfg-alias Yes / Done Services unit, auto-build, seems to work
lcfg-auth Yes / Done  
lcfg-boot No Uses init. Not compatible with systemd.
lcfg-cron TODO The component is unable to control crond (Bug 703). Also cronie goes from 1.4.4 to 1.4.11, three years of development. We'll need to see what's changed.
lcfg-etcservices Yes / Done  
lcfg-fstab TODO We should look at changing the default filesystem type.
lcfg-grub No Will be replaced by lcfg-grub2 to cope with this release's major grub update.
lcfg-grub2 Yes / Done blog: grub2
lcfg-hardware Yes / Done Rewritten into perl, some ancient functionality dropped
lcfg-init No /etc/inittab is not used in the systemd world.
lcfg-kernel Yes / Done Setting kernel/initrd links works, not sure about building kernel modules yet. How will we handle boot-time module rebuilds and reboots?
lcfg-lcfginit No Presumably obsolete as /etc/inittab is obsolete.
lcfg-mailcap Yes / Done RAT unit, auto-build, extension of file component, seems to work
lcfg-network TODO RHEL7 uses Network Manager - though maybe in the short term we'll get away with using legacy sysconfig compatibility scripts. (And then there's systemd's networkd to think about.)
lcfg-nsswitch Yes / Done Rewritten into Perl, no change to features
lcfg-nsu Yes / Done  
lcfg-ntp TODO Inf unit, creates config files, not clear if the daemon management is compatible with systemd
lcfg-openssh TODO Inf unit, creates config files just fine, management of daemon needs reworking for systemd world
lcfg-pam Yes / Done  
lcfg-resolvconf Yes / Done  
lcfg-rsyslog Yes / Done  
lcfg-tcpwrappers Yes / Done Rewritten into Perl, no change in features
lcfg-updaterpms Yes / Done Need to consider how to trigger reboots

perl-RPM2 Yes / Done Standard part of Fedora
