Description Jan Kurik 2018-01-22 19:08:48 UTC
This is a tracking bug for Change: Replace glibc's libcrypt with libxcrypt
For more details, see: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/Replace_glibc_libcrypt_with_libxcrypt

There are https://sourceware.org/ml/libc-alpha/2017-08/msg01257.html plans to remove libcrypt from glibc, so we should have a replacement.

Comment 1 Björn 'besser82' Esser 2018-01-24 12:41:31 UTC
`libxcrypt` has been imported and `libcrypt` has been removed from `glibc`.  `libxcrypt` obsoletes the old `libcrypt{,-nss}` packages and is used by all applications, which link against the symbols provided by `libcrypt.so.1`.

Most of the packages linking against `libcrypt.so.1` are rebuilding sucessfully.  Some packages still need to be patched in order to *rebuild* against `libxcrypt` cleanly, but *the present builds* of them *should still work as expected*.

Comment 2 Fedora End Of Life 2018-02-20 15:33:15 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 28 development cycle.
Changing version to '28'.

Comment 3 Jan Kurik 2018-03-06 08:57:56 UTC
On 2018-Mar-08 we reached the "Change Checkpoint: 100% Code Complete Deadline" milestone for Fedora 28 release. At this point all the Changes not at least in "ON_QA" state should be brought to FESCo for review. Please update the state of this bug to "ON_QA" if it is already 100% completed. Please let me know in case you have any trouble with the implementation and the Change needs any help or review.

Thanks, Jan

Björn, can you please provide a status update?

Comment 5 Florian Weimer 2018-03-16 16:00:27 UTC
The core changes are complete, but we have some FTBFS bugs due to the required package porting work.
