Dansguardian.config edit using perl or sed
DansGuardian Wiki FAQs
Usage #26. There was a bug in DansGuardian versions 126.96.36.199 through 188.8.131.52 (but not 184.108.40.206 and before, or 220.127.116.11 and after) that caused list lines containing an invisible TAB character to be mis-parsed. That caused all kinds of weird and wonderful behaviors, including what appeared to be the exact same line behaving differently when retyped, and lines being sensitive to the presence of comments! (Use something like dansguardian -v to find out the DansGuardian version, which isn't always the same as the package version.)
To solve the problem do any one of:
Edit the list files to use only SPACEs never TABs.
Convert all existing TABs to the right number of SPACEs (maybe use something like sed or Perl).
Upgrade to at least DansGuardian 18.104.22.168
Since this is only my first miserable attempt at installing a slackbuild
and i have zero experience creating my own. Upgrading to DansGuardian 22.214.171.124 seems beyond my ability at the moment. Does anyone on here have the ability to easily "Edit the list files to use only SPACEs never TABs.
