Subject: [gentoo-dev] pkg_setup() and sandbox
Date: Fri, 23 Sep 2005 00:51:15
1 Should pkg_setup() be run in a sandbox?
3 The current reasons to not have it sandboxed include:
5 - ebuilds need to add users
6 - ... (any others?)
8 So, would it make sense to sandbox pkg_setup() and only unmask the
9 passwd files needed for adding users? enewuser & friends can be made to
10 unmask those locations on demand, thus making the transition painless.
12 What other reasons are there for having pkg_setup() outside the sandbox?
14 As to why I'm asking -- this[1] abolition of an ebuild made its way on
15 the qmail mailing list and I was shocked that it does not die in the
16 first place.
18 Disclamer: Exercise great caution with the following link. Only read one
19 line at a time or you may be overwhelmed. Take a break every 10 lines or
20 so. Have a sedative handy.
