Usage of secure_getenv prevents build against musl libc
Status in Snappy Launcher:
Status in snap-confine package in Ubuntu:
Status in snap-confine source package in Xenial:
snap-confine relies on glibc function secure_getenv() to work. This
function is not available on musl so the build cannot complete. With
this bug fixed snap-confine now contains an implementation of
secure_getenv() that is used when the standard library does not
provide a copy of this function.
snap-confine can be built with musl C library.
This change does not affect the Ubuntu package.
* This bug is a part of a major SRU that brings snap-confine in Ubuntu
16.04 in line with the current upstream release 1.0.41.
* snap-confine is technically an integral part of snapd which has an
SRU exception and is allowed to introduce new features and take
advantage of accelerated procedure. For more information see
== # Pre-SRU bug description follows # ==
Building snap-confine against the musl libc breaks due to the use of
secure_getenv() which is a GNU extension.
It would be nice to allow building snap-confine against musl as it's
the default libc for OpenWRT and derived trees. This could be achieved
by providing a secure_getenv alternate implementation or just falling
back to getenv().
