Removing ebox does not stop the daemon

Bug #234912 reported by William Lynch on 2008-05-26
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
ebox (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: ebox

I installed ebox to take a look at it, and removed it about an hour later. However, looking at my process table, I see the following:

root 13281 0.0 3.0 224976 29740 ? Ss 03:11 0:00 /usr/sbin/apache2 -k start -f /var/lib/ebox/conf/apache2.conf
ebox 13283 0.0 4.1 252800 40136 ? S 03:11 0:00 /usr/sbin/apache2 -k start -f /var/lib/ebox/conf/apache2.conf
ebox 13373 0.0 4.1 252540 39944 ? S 03:13 0:00 /usr/sbin/apache2 -k start -f /var/lib/ebox/conf/apache2.conf
ebox 13374 0.1 4.4 257108 42612 ? S 03:13 0:01 /usr/sbin/apache2 -k start -f /var/lib/ebox/conf/apache2.conf
ebox 13375 0.0 4.1 252560 39780 ? S 03:13 0:00 /usr/sbin/apache2 -k start -f /var/lib/ebox/conf/apache2.conf
ebox 13464 0.1 4.3 254132 41504 ? S 03:16 0:01 /usr/sbin/apache2 -k start -f /var/lib/ebox/conf/apache2.conf

Mind you, I've also uninstalled apache2. In my opinion, once eBox was removed, the prerm script should have run the stop script.

There was an attempt to stop the whole eBox in prerm, but there was a mistake.

I've already committed the fix to upstream. New packages for intrepid will ship this fix.

Thanks for your report!

Fix in upstream shouldn't change the Ubuntu status. So I'm changing it to confirmed.

I thought Fix committed was the status used to reference that it was fixed upstream, but it's not packaged in ubuntu yet.

I thought so too, but I've been told the opposite on the IRC.

I guess the right thing to do would be adding a watcher for upstream bug using the "also affects" thing.
