comment:2 by bdubbs@…, 5 years ago

Major changes since man-db 2.8.2:


  • Make seccomp sandbox allow madvise, since that's used by lbzip2.
  • Make seccomp sandbox allow kill and tgkill outright, since groff uses kill to pass on signals to its child processes.
  • Make seccomp sandbox allow sibling architectures on x86/x86_64/x32, since people sometimes mix and match architectures there for performance reasons.
  • Fix version check in locale macro loading to tolerate groff release candidates.
  • man now only changes working directory in child processes, so never fails due to being unable to change back to its original working directory.
  • accessdb, apropos, and lexgrog no longer emit spurious gettext headers in their --help output when localised.
