Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1476553
PSAD expects Firewalld to be running (using iptables)
Last modified: 2018-05-07 06:19:55 EDT
Upstream bug report: https://github.com/mrash/psad/issues/50#issuecomment-318449756
Please bump the package to version 2.4.5: https://github.com/mrash/psad/releases
This will include the possibility to use iptables instead of FirewallD.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 26 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 26. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 26 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Is there a reason for the long delays? If you don't have the time to work on these packages then maybe you can ask for a co-maintainer? The alpha of RHEL 8 is about to be released, it will have a non-functional PSAD package. It would be a real shame if this package will be excluded from the RHEL 8 release due to some of the open bugs, which are probably fixed in the latest upstream release.
You are welcome to apply for co-maintainership and/or submit PRs to fix this.
