%patch11 for spec file

After upgrading to 2.3.x, PAM authentication stopped working:

Error in system's security log:

PAM audit_log_acct_message() failed: Operation not permitted

Error in dovecot.log:

auth-worker(*REMOVED*): Info: pam(*REMOVED*): pam_authenticate() failed: System error

Removing NoNewPrivileges=true and adding CAP_AUDIT_WRITE to CapabilityBoundingSet fixes this error.

It seems the option NoNewPrivileges=true is not only a problem for apparmor, but also for PAM.

I've attached a patch that can be used as %patch11 in the spec file.

Comment 1 Michal Hlavinka 2018-08-13 15:46:54 UTC
this change should be already included

Comment 2 Helmut K. C. Tessarek 2018-08-13 15:57:21 UTC
No, it isn't. At least not in 2.3.1. They finally fixed that in 2.3.2.

Comment 3 Michal Hlavinka 2018-08-14 08:11:27 UTC
rawhide contains dovecot
