Enhancement #648

Updated by Marc Dequènes over 4 years ago

Please update the TODOs below and add a note to comment on the progress. 

 Identified oneshot changes: 
 * before migration: 
 ** -add buster in our repo and check if packages needs to be ported- (spoolinger is done, lxd needs more work, nothing else needs porting) 
 ** Migrating from legacy network interface names: see 
 *** added Ansible rules to configure renaming 
 *** defined [[Naming Rules#Network-Interfaces]] 
 *** all machines migrated to the new scheme except Nicecity which it down 
 * after migration: 
 ** /usr is now merged by default and most softwares expect path to be updated (look at the _softwares incompatible with usrmerge layout_ below): apt install usrmerge 
 ** SysV init related packages no longer required: apt purge initscripts sysv-rc insserv startpar 
 ** -PostgreSQL PostgreSQL databases need to be reindexed- (in fact pg_upgradecluster dumps/imports so it is not necessary) reindexed: sudo -u postgres reindexdb --all 
 ** -apt-transport-https is no longer necessary- 
 ** on web servers _php7.0-common_ needs to be removed manually: : apt purge php7.0-common 

 Identified deployment changes: 
 * -hidepid with systemd and polkit: see 
 * -install debian-security-support- 

 Problematic softwares: 
 * phpmyadmin: not in Buster but still in Debian; I see a "RFA": with work towards newer versions but that requires many new dependencies, thus a backport of the latest 4.6.6 in our repo seems to be the way to go as I don't think an official backport is going to happen 
 * -ftp-ssl: still in Debian but missing in Buster because it was not ready for openssl 1.1; 0.17.34+0.2-4.1 contains a patch and could be backported in our repo (unless it comes in Debian first)- 
 * softwares incompatible with usrmerge layout: 
 ** -molly-guard problems ( (molly-guard and usrmerge backported in our repo)
