#259 desai koen at systray dot be fixed not able to manage services on a rh based machine

I want to manage services on a rh based machine I configured the XML files which will manage these services, all seems to work correctly.. Config management works too and it detects which services are running using chkconfig. (when using verbose output on the client) The services specified below are names of services which are specified in the XML file on the server, and can be started perfectly with the init.d script.

It's not exactly a bug, I just can't find the reason why the bcfg2 client can't handle these services...

Could you tell me where to look at? I'm pretty sure the configuration side on the server is ok..

#767 desai dclark fixed new bcfg2 dep python-profiler is non-free

r5389 added a .deb packaging dep on python-profiler based on a dep in bcfg2-server code.

python-profiler is not free software:


As shown at python-profiler is in multiverse, which is not enabled in default ubuntu installs, and is described like this:

"multiverse" component

The "multiverse" component contains software that is "not free", which means the licensing requirements of this software do not meet the Ubuntu "main" Component Licence Policy.

The onus is on you to verify your rights to use this software and comply with the licensing terms of the copyright holder.

This software is not supported and usually cannot be fixed or updated. Use it at your own risk.


As shown at python-profiler is in non-free

The free packages go into main; the non-free ones into non-free, and the free ones which depend on non-free ones into contrib.


I'm not going to comment on legal / ethical / moral issues at the moment, but from a sys admin annoyance POV this means that users running Debian and Ubuntu are unable to install bcfg2-server in a default configuration, and users of distributions like Trisquel and gNewSense that do not distribute any nonfree software will be completely unable to install it.

The best overall writeup of the problem seems to be at

It looks like there is a project to replace with a freedom-respecting version at:

It's marked as beta, last updated 22 Aug 2006. In a 2008 thread the author recommends against using it.

There is a more recent project at: (code) that includes threading support, but is marked as being alpha.

I use lsprofcalltree, which fires up KCacheGrind to visualize the
results of profiling from cProfile (aka lsprof).

It looks like there are some details on how to do this at

#539 solj [email protected] worksforme negate package

I think it would be useful to be able to negate a package or specify that a package should be uninstalled(possibly purged with apt-get).

At the moment, I am using actions and dynamic groups to do this. The only problem is that the actions are run every time I run bcfg2.
