The Libcap package implements the user-space interfaces to the POSIX 1003.1e capabilities available in Linux kernels. These capabilities are a partitioning of the all powerful root privilege into a set of distinct privileges.
Compile the package:
This package does not come with a test suite.
Install the package:
make RAISE_SETFCAP=no prefix=/usr install chmod -v 755 /usr/lib/libcap.so
The shared library needs to be moved to
/lib, and as a result the
.so file in
/usr/lib will need to be recreated:
mv -v /usr/lib/libcap.so.* /lib ln -sfv ../../lib/libcap.so.2 /usr/lib/libcap.so
