Subject [jira] [Created] (DAEMON-256) jsvc parameter --without-libcap for compilaton on Unix
Date Thu, 23 Aug 2012 19:00:44 GMT
Michal Krejci created DAEMON-256:

             Summary: jsvc parameter --without-libcap for compilaton on Unix
                 Key: DAEMON-256
             Project: Commons Daemon
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Jsvc
    Affects Versions: 1.0.10
         Environment: Linux, CentOS/RHEL 5,6 for example
            Reporter: Michal Krejci
            Priority: Minor

It would be nice to have special parameter for compilation JSVC without "Capabilities" option.
JSVC is compiled automatically with this option when libcap-devel package is installed. During
compilation without libcap-devel package is only printed line:
WARNING: cannot find headers for libcap.
I use jsvc quite often, with "Capabilities" option is behaviour unexpected, no messages after
run binary without assigned correct rights, in documentation is not described what and how
to properly set.
For my purposes is "Capabilities" option unnecessary complication. I would appreciate to have
possibility deactivate this option, e.g.:
$ ./configure --without-libcap ...
