source: trunk/server/fedora/specs/shadow-utils.spec.patch @ 1671

Last change on this file since 1671 was 1507, checked in by mitchb, 13 years ago
Temporarily scriptsify shadow-utils to fix max length of group names The upstream shadow-utils package used to hardcode the max length of a group name to 16 characters, and Fedora patched it to make that length match utmpx.ut_name's length (32) and documented it as being 32. The last upstream update that Fedora took changed the code to default to 16, but allow a nondefault value via a --with flag to configure. Fedora's patch thus no longer applied and they dropped the relevant hunk, but neglected to add the --with flag in the spec file, so the max group name length dropped back to 16, causing packages that install groups with names longer than 16 characters to begin failing to install properly mid-release. We'll be pursuing this issue with Fedora.
