Description Magnus Granberg gentoo-dev 2014-01-16 20:51:54 UTC
The ebuilds still use paxctl and that don't have any support for the xattr pax markings. Depend should be change to sys-apps/elfix that have the xattr support.
Call to paxctl should be change to and no need to pass C to the pax-utils eclass or for it should use C when marking, if the first marking fail. The is a bash script version of the pax-utils.eclass.

More of the java vm may be affected to.

I was just thinking the same while looking at the existing PaX code. I'll be updating this in the ebuilds (at least in the overlay) now I'm on a PaX XT-only system myself. Thanks for making me aware of
