Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 432155
selinux and audit configure options all mixed up
Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:54:43 EST
Description of problem:
In configure.in there is a single SELINUX_LIBS variable which is used for both
selinux and audit libraries. This is plain wrong because they are independent
options. Worse still, in bus/selinux.c the entire file is contained within an
#ifdef HAVE_SELINUX yet it contains audit_init() definition which is needed when
WITH_AUDIT is defined.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. configure with --enable-selinux=no and --enable-audit=yes
Fails to compile
If you are going to tamper with open source code and degrade it with
audit/selinux then please do the community a favor and make sure it compiles
properly. And if you really are serious about security, then implement it at
kernel/user interface ... not in individual applications.
Please send a patch to the dbus list.

No I wont, because you cannot even be bothered to tell me where the dbus list is.
If RedHat cannot arrange for automatic transferal of bugs reported in the list
to an upstream list when necessary, then one has to assume that RedHat has
Have a nice day.
Thanks for your comments.
