The ConsoleKit package is a framework for keeping track of the various users, sessions, and seats present on a system. It provides a mechanism for software to react to changes of any of these items or of any of the metadata associated with them.
This package is known to build and work properly using an LFS-7.7 platform.

If you intend NOT to install polkit, you will need to manually edit the ConsoleKit.conf file to lock down the service. Failure to do so may be a huge SECURITY HOLE.
Install ConsoleKit by running the following commands:
./configure --prefix=/usr \ --sysconfdir=/etc \ --localstatedir=/var \ --enable-udev-acl \ --enable-pam-module \ --with-systemdsystemunitdir=no && make
This package does not come with a test suite.
Now, as the
switch enables building of the udev-acl tool, which is used to
allow normal users to access device nodes normally only accessible
switch enables building of the ConsoleKit PAM module which is needed for ConsoleKit to work correctly with PAM. Remove if Linux
PAM is NOT
Disable attempting to build with systemd libraries.
--enable-docbook-docs: Use this switch
if xmlto is installed and you wish
to build the API documentation.
If you use Linux PAM, it needs
to be configured to activate ConsoleKit upon user login. This can be
achieved by editing the
/etc/pam.d/system-session file as the
cat >> /etc/pam.d/system-session << "EOF"
# Begin ConsoleKit addition session optional pam_loginuid.so session optional pam_ck_connector.so nox11 # End ConsoleKit additionEOF
You will also need a helper script that creates a file in
/var/run/console named as the
currently logged in user and that contains the D-Bus address of the session. You can create
the script by running the following commands as the
cat > /usr/lib/ConsoleKit/run-session.d/pam-foreground-compat.ck << "EOF" #!/bin/sh TAGDIR=/var/run/console [ -n "$CK_SESSION_USER_UID" ] || exit 1 [ "$CK_SESSION_IS_LOCAL" = "true" ] || exit 0 TAGFILE="$TAGDIR/`getent passwd $CK_SESSION_USER_UID | cut -f 1 -d:`" if [ "$1" = "session_added" ]; then mkdir -p "$TAGDIR" echo "$CK_SESSION_ID" >> "$TAGFILE" fi if [ "$1" = "session_removed" ] && [ -e "$TAGFILE" ]; then sed -i "\%^$CK_SESSION_ID\$%d" "$TAGFILE" [ -s "$TAGFILE" ] || rm -f "$TAGFILE" fi EOF chmod -v 755 /usr/lib/ConsoleKit/run-session.d/pam-foreground-compat.ck
See /usr/share/doc/ConsoleKit/spec/ConsoleKit.html for more configuration.
