Comment 3 RHEL Product and Program Management 2011-07-11 07:58:12 EDT
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated
in the current release, Red Hat is unfortunately unable to
address this request at this time. Red Hat invites you to
ask your support representative to propose this request, if
appropriate and relevant, in the next release of Red Hat
Enterprise Linux. If you would like it considered as an
exception in the current release, please ask your support
Comment 9 Ondrej Moriš 2011-08-16 19:16:27 EDT
Kamil, could you propose some reproducer for this RFE? I am using strace to get acl of a link target, but there is no difference between old and new version. I am sure, that there is a more reliable way to trigger this new function call. Is it?
Comment 10 Kamil Dudka 2011-08-17 01:09:42 EDT
Ondrej, what are you stracing actually?  ls -l?  Then you need to use a new enough version of coreutils (as for RHEL-6, it means coreutils-8.4-14.el6 or newer).  Some hints for testing are also in Bodhi since we have already successfully tested the same change in the Fedora acl package:

Comment 11 Kamil Dudka 2011-08-17 01:18:40 EDT
Actually, the coreutils-8.4-14.el6 is not new enough as it was built against an old version of libacl.  We will need to rebuild coreutils against libacl-devel >= 2.2.49-6:

checking for acl_extended_file... yes
checking for acl_extended_file_nofollow... no

If you need to test the acl package now, please use coreutils from Fedora 16, rawhide, or upstream.
