Ticket #372 (closed defect: fixed)
Temporary bundling exception for kernel event library
|Reported by:||fweimer||Owned by:|
|Component:||Bundled Library Exception||Version:|
There seems to be a library for processing kernel monitoring events called "pevent", "libtrace", "traceevent" etc., which might originally come from the kernel package (and is used there by perf), but is copied at least into powertop and rasdaemon.
On of the upstream kernel developers, Steven Rostedt, indicated that a proper DSO can be expected in the Linux 3.14 ore more likely, 3.15 time frame, so a temporary exception seems in order.
I have not filed any bugs against the affected packges yet.
