Please do, so we can get it corrected.

Can you please send me some compile log? Debian testing is my development 
system, and it compiles fine here. Almost all my systems run Debian by now.

The released version has been rock solid on all my UP systems so far, and I 
stated often enough that I had no SMP system. Most bugfixes came after bug 
reports from other people, some needed careful tests to reproduce on my (new) 
SMP test system and no bugs showed up on UP systems.

Sorry to say that - if you want a more stable release, please help in testing 
the pre releases. If you have some RSBAC related instability, please post it 
on the list and I will try to fix it. But please do not complain if you do 
not read the bugfixes page and ignore the bugfix posts.

I do my best to test on different systems and fix all reported bugs as fast as 
possible. Most bugfixes are first posted on the list and only put up on the 
Web page after success reports. The official bugfixes are both posted on the 
list and put up prominently on the RSBAC entry page.

Additionally, rsync.rsbac.org and the rsync server at rsbac.dyndns.org are 
updated after every bugfix, sometimes there are even additional smaller 

The prepatched kernels are *not* updated after every bugfix - what is easy to 
see from their package dates. Prepatched kernels for new kernel versions get 
all existing bugfixes applied, you will see a -bfX for latest bugfix X in the 
package name.
