Description Klaus Kusche 2015-07-12 10:30:04 UTC
When emerged with "hardened", dev-lang/orc-0.4.24 logs

WARN (postinst)

Please run "revdep-pax" after installation.
It's provided by sys-apps/elfix.

Running "revdep-pax" just prints a help message.
Please specify the command to run *exactly*,
I don't know what to do.

(why is this needed anyway? 
No other package ever asked me to run revdep-pax!)
Comment 1 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2015-07-13 14:34:02 UTC shows the affected libs and binaries... @hardened, what would be the complete revdep-pax command line to tell people to use?

Comment 2 Gilles Dartiguelongue gentoo-dev 2016-01-02 11:29:29 UTC
Honestly, I don't really understand these pax tools. I had to set m on rygel yesterday because it would be killed otherwise calling orc on a hardened kernel but I am not sure if this is right or why it wouldn't be applied automatically by pax tools.
