Bug Description

In Ubuntu 8.04, Heimdal's kadmind daemon is compiled to look for kadmind.acl in /var/lib/heimdal-kdc/kadmind.acl, but documentation and the sample file locates it in /etc/heimdal-kdc/kadmind.acl

Location was verified using strace:

open("/var/lib/heimdal-kdc/kadmind.acl", O_RDONLY|O_LARGEFILE) = 5

For other users finding this bug, you can easily fix it either by editing the file in /var/lib/heimdal-kdc/kadmind.acl, or by setting up a softlink as follows:

sudo ln -s /etc/heimdal-kdc/kadmind.acl /var/lib/heimdal-kdc/kadmind.acl

But presumably the long term fix is to either fix the man page, or change the compiled-in default. Or, if you must, add the above softlink as part of the install.
