Perl module libnet-ident-perl added to OE

November 17, 2022 — BarryK

Continuing to fix EasyShare. It calls /usr/sbin/; however, I found that it is missing the Net::Ident module.

There is no recipe for it in OpenEmbedded/Yocto, so I had to create it. Github commit:

Tested, it now works.

The perl script is used to obtain the netbios name on another computer on the LAN. The other computer will be running 'fakeidentd' daemon, that will serve the netbios name. This is an alternative to samba's nmbd.
