Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 191477
avoid trying to reload the keyboard mapping as user
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:25 EST
Description of problem:
The CVE-2005-3257 warns about any user being able to change the keyboard mapping
on console. To fix this, the kernel doesn't allow anymore the user to change
the keyboard mapping, only read it. After fixing this (BZ#172357) the kbd
package breaks because /bin/unicode_start tries to reload the table everytime
the user logs in.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.apply patch https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/attachment.cgi?id=128857 on
latest RHEL-4 kernel
2. try to login as any user
'loadkeys' application prints errors for not being able to change the keyboard
no warnings being printed
there's already a patch on kbd Fedora package:
