Description Enrico Scholz 2005-12-26 19:32:45 EST
Spec Name or Url: http://ensc.de/fedora/x11-ssh-askpass.spec
SRPM Name or Url: http://ensc.de/fedora/x11-ssh-askpass-
GNU Arch: ensc@ensc.de--fedora (http://ensc.de/tla/{archives}/fedora)


x11-ssh-askpass is a lightweight passphrase dialog for OpenSSH or
other open variants of SSH. In particular, x11-ssh-askpass is useful
with the Unix port of OpenSSH by Damien Miller and others, and Damien
includes it in his RPM packages of OpenSSH.

x11-ssh-askpass uses only the stock X11 libraries (libX11, libXt) for
its user interface. This reduces its dependencies on external libraries
(such as GNOME or Perl/Tk). See the README for further information.
Comment 1 Ville Skyttä 2005-12-27 02:35:44 EST
You have asked and got a confirmation that x11-ssh-askpass won't be coming back
in the near future FC openssh packages, right?
Comment 2 Enrico Scholz 2005-12-27 05:29:00 EST
"Feel free to package the x11-ssh-askpass in Fedora Extras." from bug #176312#1
should be enough...
Comment 3 Warren Togami 2006-01-24 23:44:37 EST
Error: Missing Dependency: /etc/X11/app-defaults/ is needed by package

Am I missing something?  This is FC5.
Comment 4 Ville Skyttä 2006-01-25 02:02:03 EST
That's /usr/share/X11/app-defaults in FC5.
Comment 5 Warren Togami 2006-01-25 02:10:07 EST
This could be done with a simple conditional in the spec.
Comment 6 Enrico Scholz 2006-03-26 08:47:13 EST
* Sun Mar 26 2006 Enrico Scholz <enrico.scholz@informatik.tu-chemnitz.de> -
- fixed path of app-defaults dir

Comment 7 Enrico Scholz 2006-05-20 05:05:25 EDT
* Sat May 20 2006 Enrico Scholz <enrico.scholz@informatik.tu-chemnitz.de> -
- removed '%config' from the app-defaultsdir
- do not own the app-defaultsdir anymore
- added some tricks to the -random patch to avoid removal of the
  clear-the-passphrase-memset() due to optimization

Comment 8 Warren Togami 2006-07-25 14:00:31 EDT
Source matches upstream.  spec inspection is OK, rpmlint warnings are ignorable.
