tallero : I do not understand your question. Why would you need ubuntu-keyring for? According to the file list of this package, it installs Ubuntu's keys in /usr/share/keyrings/ and etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/. But if you want Serge Hallyn's key to verify the signature of the downloaded archive, you need to add it to the keyring of the user who builds shadow-selinux, not to some system-wide directories. This action can be done for example with "gpg --recv-keys ..." or by searching the key on a key server, downloading it and importing it with "gpg --import ...". By the way, all PGP keys which are needed to build SELinux packages hosted on the AUR are also available on .

TL;DR I do not think ubuntu-keyring should be added to the build dependencies.

Serge Hallyn key can be found on Launchpad.

Could the package need the ubuntu-keyring build dependency?

Renamed to shadow-selinux

Build fails in ./configure on my system:
checking selinux/selinux.h usability... yes
checking selinux/selinux.h presence... yes
checking for selinux/selinux.h... yes
checking semanage/semanage.h usability... no
checking semanage/semanage.h presence... no
checking for semanage/semanage.h... no
configure: error: semanage/semanage.h is missing

Installing selinux-usr-libsemanage solves this issue. Please add this dependency.

@Nicky726: Thanks for the update! My /etc/group file didn't change when I went from shadow -> selinux-shadow or from selinux-shadow -> selinux-shadow, so I don't think there's anything wrong with the package.

Rebased to the latest [core] and added the binutils patch and selinux ldflags. I had shared libraries disabled, as the build failed, but seems one of those fixes so I enabled it.
Had to fix inconsistencies in /etc/group though, don't know if it was caused by something in this package, though.

chenxiaolong commented on 2011-12-12 05:30 seems that '-lselinux' also needs to be added to the LDFLAGS.

Could you add 'audit' to the dependencies and also some build fixes from the original PKGBUILD ( Specifically, these:

# fix linking issues with binutils 2.22
sed -i '/^user\(mod\|add\)_LDADD/s|$| -lattr|' src/

# Ugh, force this to build shared libraries, for god's sake
sed -i "s/noinst_LTLIBRARIES/lib_LTLIBRARIES/g" lib/

Thank you, fixed.
