Version 4.6.1

  • Because of changing checksums before and after installation which caused
    the integrity tests to fail we avoided directly linking libsimaka, libtls and
    libtnccs to those libcharon plugins which make use of these dynamic libraries.
    Instead we linked the libraries to the charon daemon. Unfortunately Ubuntu
    11.10 activated the --as-needed ld option which discards explicit links
    to dynamic libraries that are not actually used by the charon daemon itself,
    thus causing failures during the loading of the plugins which depend on these
    libraries for resolving external symbols.
  • Therefore our approach of computing integrity checksums for plugins had to be
    changed radically by moving the hash generation from the compilation to the
    post-installation phase.
