Hello softflowd developers and users,
I commited (hg pushed) a patch for sfotflowd.
This patchenable to change privdrop chroot direcotry for non BSD
The chroot dir was constant parameter in softflowd.h.
# define PRIVDROP_CHROOT_DIR "/var/empty"
"/var/empty" exists in (Open)BSD. On the other hand the directory does
not exist in (Ubuntu) Linux.
I added "--with-chrootdir" option in configure.ac. It is able to change
privdrop chroot directory.
If you want to change PRIVDROP_CHROOT_DIR to
"/var/run/softflowd/chroot", please type as follows :
