Description Tomas Janousek 2007-05-11 14:50:00 UTC
Description of problem:
gdm used to be built with tcp_wrappers on previous RHEL releases, although the
BuildRequires was missing there as well. The tcp_wrappers package just happened
to appear in the buildroot.

I believe it's nice to be able to limit XDMCP connections using hosts.{allow,deny}.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Additional info:
If you're going to fix this, don't forget that bug 181302 applies here as well.

Comment 5 RHEL Program Management 2008-09-25 15:22:38 UTC
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion, but this component is not scheduled to be updated in
the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. If you would like
this request to be reviewed for the next minor release, ask your
support representative to set the next rhel-x.y flag to "?".

Comment 6 Alan Matsuoka 2009-02-06 17:33:09 UTC
I'll need the 5.3 flag cleared.
