Introduction to Polkit

PolicyKit is a framework for defining policy for system-wide components and for desktop pieces to configure it. It is used by several packages including Gnome and ConsoleKit. Note that this is not compatible with current versions of HAL; see PolicyKit for the older version.

Dependencies

Required

Optional

PolKit User/Group

groupadd -g 26 polkit &&
useradd -c "Policy Kit Daemon User" -d /dev/null \
        -u 26 -g polkit -s /bin/false polkit

Non-Multilib

If building with support for Gobject-introspection, remove the --disable-introspection option to configure.

Compile the package:

./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc \
    --libexecdir=/usr/lib/polkit-1 --localstatedir=/var \
    --with-polkit-user=polkit --disable-introspection &&
make

Install the package

make install

Multilib

32Bit

If building with support for Gobject-introspection, use the following commands to prepare for compilation, and remove the --disable-introspection option from configure in the next step:

sed -i "/GIRDIR/s/gir-1.0/&-32/" configure.ac &&
autoconf

Compile the package:

export CC="gcc ${BUILD32}"
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH="${PKG_CONFIG_PATH32}"
export USE_ARCH=32
./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc \
    --libexecdir=/usr/lib/polkit-1 --localstatedir=/var \
    --with-polkit-user=polkit --disable-introspection &&
make

Install the package

make install
unset CC
unset PKG_CONFIG_PATH
unset USE_ARCH

N32

If building with support for Gobject-introspection, use the following commands to prepare for compilation, and remove the --disable-introspection option from configure in the next step:

sed -i "/GIRDIR/s/gir-1.0/&-n32/" configure.ac &&
autoconf

Compile the package:

export CC="gcc ${BUILDN32}"
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH="${PKG_CONFIG_PATHN32}"
export USE_ARCH=n32
./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc \
    --libexecdir=/usr/lib32/polkit-1 --localstatedir=/var \
    --libdir=/usr/lib32 --with-pam-module-dir=/lib32/security \
    --with-polkit-user=polkit --disable-introspection &&
make

Install the package

make install
unset CC
unset PKG_CONFIG_PATH
unset USE_ARCH

64Bit

If building with support for Gobject-introspection, use the following commands to prepare for compilation, and remove the --disable-introspection option from configure in the next step:

sed -i "/GIRDIR/s/gir-1.0/&-64/" configure.ac &&
autoconf

Compile the package:

export CC="gcc ${BUILD64}"
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH="${PKG_CONFIG_PATH64}"
export USE_ARCH=64
./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc \
    --libexecdir=/usr/lib64/polkit-1 --localstatedir=/var \
    --libdir=/usr/lib64 --with-pam-module-dir=/lib64/security \
    --with-polkit-user=polkit --disable-introspection &&
make

Install the package

make install
unset CC
unset PKG_CONFIG_PATH
unset USE_ARCH
