Fedora 10 Update: freeradius-2.1.1-6.fc10



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2008-10392
2008-11-26 04:13:35
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : freeradius
Product     : Fedora 10
Version     : 2.1.1
Release     : 6.fc10
URL         : http://www.freeradius.org/
Summary     : High-performance and highly configurable free RADIUS server
Description :
The FreeRADIUS Server Project is a high performance and highly configurable
GPL'd free RADIUS server. The server is similar in some respects to
Livingston's 2.0 server.  While FreeRADIUS started as a variant of the
Cistron RADIUS server, they don't share a lot in common any more. It now has
many more features than Cistron or Livingston, and is much more configurable.

FreeRADIUS is an Internet authentication daemon, which implements the RADIUS
protocol, as defined in RFC 2865 (and others). It allows Network Access
Servers (NAS boxes) to perform authentication for dial-up users. There are
also RADIUS clients available for Web servers, firewalls, Unix logins, and
more.  Using RADIUS allows authentication and authorization for a network to
be centralized, and minimizes the amount of re-configuration which has to be
done when adding or deleting new users.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

Remove the diaupadmin PHP subpackages. They are not actively maintained by
upstream and have had problems reported against them. Fedora only shipped them
for one release cycle so we're reverting to the previous behavior of not
shipping them again.    Also a number of RHEL/CentOS users want to build this
version since it's not available on RHEL/CentOS so this version of the SRPM has
a minor tweak to the spec file which should permit them to perform a rpmbuild
using this Fedora SRPM on RHEL/CentOS.    Fedora users should not see any
difference in this package version and the previous one unless they were
utilizing the PHP web administration subpackage.

* Mon Nov 24 2008 John Dennis <jdennis redhat com> - 2.1.1-6
- add readline-devel BuildRequires
* Fri Nov 21 2008 John Dennis <jdennis redhat com> - 2.1.1-3
- make spec file buildable on RHEL5.2 by making perl-devel a fedora only dependency.
- remove diaupadmin packages, it's not well supported and there are problems with it.
