- Remove README.SUSE because rh#1693356 and upstream classified it as not a problem
* Sat Mar 20 2021 Andreas Stieger <>
- fix pyton dbus-python build dependency for Leap 15.3 boo#1183818
* Fri Jan 15 2021 Martin Hauke <>
- Update to version 1.90.9
  * Fix multiple daemon lockup issues (#97)
  * Fix print garbage collection to not delete used prints
  * pam: Use the device with the most prints
* Sat Dec 12 2020 Martin Hauke <>
- Update to version 1.90.8
  It seems that we are finally reaching the end of the tunnel with
  regard to regressions. One more issue that cropped up was that a
  pam_fprintd fix to avoid a possible authentication bypass caused
  issues when fprintd was just started on demand.
  * pam: Only listen to NameOwnerChanged after fprintd is known to
  * Place new ObjectManager DBus API at /net/reactivated/Fprint
* Wed Dec 09 2020 Martin Hauke <>
- Update to version 1.90.7
  While 1.90.6 fixed a number of issues, we did have a bad
  regression due causing pam_fprintd to crash when there are no
  fingerprint devices installed.
  * pam: Guard strdup calls against NULL pointers
* Mon Dec 07 2020 Martin Hauke <>
- Update to version 1.90.6
  The 1.90.5 release was unusable due to a number of inter-related
  issues with the DBus interface and authorization. We also found
  a number of problems with possible security implications.
  Currently fprintd will do interactive authorization even if this
  was not requested using the correct DBus method call flag. All
  API users MUST be updated to set the flag as it will be enabled
  in the future!
  * Fix fprintd DBus configuration
  * Change details of what requires authorization
  * Fix various race conditions in pam_fprintd
  * Permit interactive authorization from fprintd utilities
  * Do not allow deletion while another operation is ongoing
- Drop patch:
  * 0001-tests-Fix-test-not-failing-on-error.patch
* Tue Dec 01 2020 Martin Hauke <>
- Update to version 1.90.4
  The 1.90.4 release caused a major regression, as it included a
  USB hub in UDEV the autosupend rule list.
  * Remove USB hub from udev autosupend rules
  * synaptics: Add PID 0x00c9 which is used in some HP laptops
* Sun Nov 29 2020 Martin Hauke <>
- Update to version 1.90.4
  * Authentication is now required to enroll a new print.
  * Add support for the libfprint early reporting mechanism
  * Proper hotplug support together with libfprint 1.90.4
  * Handle STATE_DIRECTORY containing multiple paths
- Add patch:
  * 0001-tests-Fix-test-not-failing-on-error.patch
    Unittest test_manager_get_devices_on_name_appeared is broken
    with this patch applied - so revert it for now.
* Thu Mar 19 2020 Tomá? Chvátal <>

* Sat Nov 16 2013
- Change systemd BuildRequires to pkgconfig(systemd) so that
  configure actually finds the dependency. This fixes an issue on
  systemd-based systems where the fprintd dbus service is not
  starting because it's referencing the non-existing fprintd
  systemd service. Fix bnc#850807.
- Add %pre/%post/%preun/%postun sections to register systemd
- Add %{?systemd_requires} to the dependencies.
