Comment 3 Vitezslav Crhonek 2009-10-27 12:26:58 UTC
sblim-smis-hba requires headers and routines defined in hbaapi package:


Probably just libHBAAPI.so and hbaapi.h is needed. We do not have this stuff in RHEL (and Fedora) AFAIK.

hbaapi package is under SNIA Public License (https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Licensing/SNIA_Public_License), which is FSF Free and is not GPLv2/GPLv3 compatible.

Comment 5 John Jarvis 2009-10-27 13:54:47 UTC
This enhancement request was evaluated by the full Red Hat Enterprise Linux 
team for inclusion in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux minor release.   As a 
result of this evaluation, Red Hat has tentatively approved inclusion of 
this feature in the next Red Hat Enterprise Linux Update minor release.   
While it is a goal to include this enhancement in the next minor release 
of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, the enhancement is not yet committed for 
inclusion in the next minor release pending the next phase of actual 
code integration and successful Red Hat and partner testing.
