Description Samuli Suominen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-01-27 17:26:03 UTC
Because of this,

  10 Aug 2009; Samuli Suominen <>
  dvbstreamer-1.1.ebuild, +files/dvbstreamer-1.1-Werror.patch:
  Fix building with GCC 4.4+ by removing -Werror wrt #260919.

It should go stable soon as possible for future GCC 4.4.x stabilization
Comment 1 Samuli Suominen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-02-03 10:42:15 UTC
Moving to security because of,

*dvbstreamer-1.1-r1 (03 Feb 2010)

  03 Feb 2010; Samuli Suominen <>
  +dvbstreamer-1.1-r1.ebuild, +files/dvbstreamer-1.1-libtool.patch:
  Use system libtool wrt #252404, thanks to Diego E. 'Flameeyes' Pettenò
  for reporting.

Before this it was bundling a vulnerable copy of libtool.

Also adding arch's.

Comment 6 Tim Sammut (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-11-20 20:29:24 UTC
GLSA request filed.
Comment 7 Roger 2011-11-17 14:36:50 UTC
Can this bug be closed with the new dvbstreamer-2.1.0.ebuild submission being posted to bug #349457?

Or is proposed dvbstreamer-2.1.0.ebuild attached to bug #349457 vulnerable as well??

Does calling autoreconf -i alleviate this security issue?
Comment 8 Samuli Suominen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2011-11-17 15:24:31 UTC
This bug is already solved in 1.1-r1 and any later versions (upstream switched to using system libltdl).  It's only open because we are waiting for the glsa.
