Can you all please stop discussing Libre Office issues in this thread?
If there's anything to discuss about how it works (or not) then it is not relevant to this thread's topic. Please take it outside, create a separate topic and allow people in here to focus on discussing their requests for Slackware-current.

libpcap built with explicit --disable-dbus option.

Having to install dbus because iptables requires libpcap linking to dbus is rather inconvenient on a server. Hopefully dbus hasn't to be running yet. Many popular distros don't link lipcap to dbus (verified in debian, fedora, crux).

In what way is running D-Bus on a server "inconvenient"?

I only looked at Arch and the f30 package in Fedora rawhide, but neither of those are using --disable-dbus. As libpcap links to D-Bus by default, I'd need a pretty good justification to change it.

But I've checked ldd on the libpcap.so on a fedora box, there was no libdbus dependency.

Do you use D-Bus on a server? If yes I would like to know why. My personal only usage of D-Bus is usually bluez/NetworkManager when I need them. It is well known that D-Bus is mostly Desktop Bus. And therefore another piece of software you usually don't need on a server for security reasons.

Please note that Fedora packages are built in mock chroots, so usually with only build-depends specified in the RPM so no systemd, so no libdbus

I just checked the binary from Arch, and it does link to libdbus.

Yes, our servers do run D-Bus.

A more important question than "why?" is "why not?" I can't see the presence of D-Bus significantly increasing the attack surface by running on a server. But if you think that it does, you could always try turning off D-Bus by making rc.messagebus non-executable. Probably libpcap will still work fine for other purposes even if it can't contact D-Bus.

Interesting. I've checked and indeed the Fedora libpcap library does not link to D-Bus.

If it's really a useless dependency, I'd consider rebuilding without it, but I'd like to hear some other opinions first.

That's likely because Fedora's libpcap.spec doesn't have "BuildRequires: dbus-devel", and without dbus-1.pc, libpcap's configure script does not detect dbus' presence and therefore doesn't compile libpcap with dbus support.

What dbus support in libpcap does is it enables one to use libpcap to capture messages on dbus (via "eavesdrop=true,type=..." rules). Whether this makes it a useful dependency or not isn't for me to judge.
