dbus 1.15.4 (UNRELEASED)
Building with CMake now requires CMake 3.9.
Build-time configuration changes:
On Unix platforms, a path in the runtime state directory (often /run)
is now used for the well-known system bus socket by default. OS
distributors should check that the path used is equivalent to the
interoperable path /var/run/dbus/system_bus_socket, especially if
running on an OS where /var/run is not guaranteed to be a symbolic
link to /run.
(dbus#180; Issam E. Maghni, Simon McVittie)
· With Autotools, this is controlled by --runstatedir, which defaults
to ${localstatedir}/run but is often set to /run by OS distributors.
The path to the system bus socket can be overridden with the
--with-system-socket option if required.
· With CMake, this is controlled by the RUNSTATEDIR option, which has
behaviour similar to Autotools. There is no separate option for the
path to the system bus socket.
· With Meson, this is controlled by the runtime_dir option, which
defaults to /run if the installation prefix is set to /usr, or has
behaviour similar to Autotools otherwise. The path to the system bus
socket can be overridden with the system_socket option if required.
