Description

Please upate dbus to version 1.2.26. It will be needed by my port of HAL 0.5.14.

Downloading the source and configuring and installing with:

./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --with-localstatedir=/var --with-dbus-user=daemon --with-dbus-daemondir=/usr/lib

Works fine on my system.

The development release after oi_151 will likely ship with at least 1.2.26 since it was updated in JDS b157.

First of all I made a mistake in the original post, it's --localstatedir=/var, not --with-localstatedir=/var.

I've been running this version of dbus for a couple of days and it's obvious now that it has issues - most notably it leaks memory.

I'm in the process of testing 1.4.8 and the issues with 1.26.6 seem to be fixed. You will need to apply the patch attached to build it though.

I haven't tried 1.2.28 but with 1.2.26 as well as leaking memory I found that apps that use dbus would hang on exit. You can test for this with gedit where it's pretty obvious. That said, 1.4.8 is still working fine here. I've been using it for about 4 months with no issues so far.

Hope that helps.

Part of JDS migration update (was told by lead maintainer that we currently follow JDS updates by default). Created dbus-1.5.6 package for interim usage and integration testing.
