Description Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2018-10-13 17:54:37 UTC
It seems like all we would need is a patch to the build system to alternatively accept elogind. HAVE_SYSTEMD should probably be renamed to HAVE_LOGIND in case the future brings further systemd support.
Comment 1 vltg0903 2018-11-09 17:38:58 UTC
Alternatively, one could just add a consolekit USE flag, no matter whether logind is supported or not (not everyone is breaking out in hives at the thought of logging in as root).
Comment 2 Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2018-11-10 12:45:37 UTC
That's not how this works.

Comment 5 Joakim Tjernlund 2019-02-25 12:48:12 UTC
This should have been added to fwupd-1.2.5 which was released just before adding
elogind support.
Comment 6 Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2019-02-25 12:58:55 UTC
Please open a separate bug regarding a version bump, it is not in the scope of this bug.
Comment 7 Joakim Tjernlund 2019-02-25 14:03:29 UTC
Done, see
