dhcpd.leases and rough edges in a fresh install
this isn't critical at all and i'm not sure of whether or not we
even care to do anything about it. but i've notice it almost every
time I bring up a new server running dhcpd.
after installing a fresh netbsd system I usually bring up dhcpd. so
I configure rc.conf and run /etc/rc.d/dhcpd start and I always see:
/etc/rc.d/dhcpd: WARNING: /var/db/dhcpd.leases is not readable.
and then knowing from past experience what is going on I immediately
* first of all the message isn't quite right. it is true it isn't
readable but only because it doesn't exist.
* second in the name of user-experience without rough edges I
think having to manually touch this file is a minor but
I know this is very trivial. do we care? is there a reason why
we don't just install an empty dhcpd.leases or create it if it
isn't found as a part of the rc script or <insert your favorite
of course i've spent more time writing this mail then I ever
will running touch /var/db/dhcpd.leases each time this happens
but that isn't the point.
