Problem description

Below you find a list of changes sorted alphabetically by package name.
gnome-volume-manager
  • Fixed bug #216903 by fixing the spec file to install the schemas file as 644 r ather than 755.
  • Added mount-opts-wildcard.patch to as an addendum to 196281.patch, allowing admins to more easily set default mount options for all filesystem types using "*" rather than having to individually set each one.
  • Added fmask.patch to implement the fmask= support to finish off the fix for bug #119900
  • Added 196281.patch to allow customers to set their own custom mount options on a volume/drive basis.
gtk-sharp2
  • Submit to sle10-sp (Fate #301111)
  • added mono-devel to buildrequires
  • Use install-data-hook instead of install-hook.
  • Update to 2.8.3
  • Fix: Multiple calls to Gnome.Vfs.MimeType.Description triggers glibc error (77534)
gdm
  • Run autoheader during build, so the audit changes will take. This should be the last fix required for bug #234133.
  • Updated patch gdm-2.8.0.7-234133-audit-login.patch, removing some spurious audit messages generated by gdm_verify_check ().
  • Added audit-devel to buildrequires, so the previous patch will actually have an effect.
  • Add patch gdm-2.8.0.7-234133-audit-login.patch. It fixes Novell bug #234133 (GDM cannot log authentication attempts).
  • Ensure that we always call fillup_and_insserv earlygdm in the post-install script. fillup_only does not need to be called for displaymanager post 10.1 since these variables were moved to aaa_base. This fixes bug 192998.
