- Use %license instead of %doc [bsc#1082318]
2018-02-18 - avindra@opensuse.org
- update to 1.9.2
* Cross compile fixes
* Limit watermark max to less than pool size to avoid 100% cpu
* Add service.suse init script
- drop fix-enforced-clock-gettime.patch (fixed upstream)
- cleanup with spec-cleaner
2016-06-19 - jengelh@inai.de
- reset rpm groups

- Add haveged-no-syslog.patch to remedy the potential for deadlocks
when booting the system: journald reads from /dev/random, which
receives entropy from haveged, which in turn logs to syslog
before providing any. Ideally, haveged would provide a proper
command-line flag to disable use of syslog. Will work with
upstream to resolve this in a cleaner way. (bnc#959237)
- Remove "After=systemd-random-seed.service" from systemd service
file to avoid the potential for deadlocks when booting the
system: systemd-random-seed needs /var to read its previous
state; mounting /var needs journald; journald needs entropy; and
entropy is provided by haveged, which needs systemd-random-seed.
2015-12-10 - tiwai@suse.de
- Fix missing dependency on coreutils for initrd macros (boo#958562)
2015-10-09 - meissner@suse.com
- haveged.service: reverted the dependency on systemd-journald.socket
for now, as it causes a dependency loop. bsc#949728 bsc#950857
2015-09-30 - meissner@suse.com
- modules-setup.sh should be module-setup.sh in dracut, also 755
- add dependency on systemd-journald.socket to make haveged
really start before journald in the initrd. bsc#898669
2015-09-29 - dmueller@suse.com
- add fix-enforced-clock-gettime.patch to fix build on generic
platforms like e.g. aarch64, which is only needed due to
our (non-recommended choice) of using gettime (fate#318370)
2015-02-17 - meissner@suse.com
- haveged-dracut.module: include haveged into the initrd for
randomness generation. bsc#898669
- haveged.service: adjust so it is started before journald
and also make sure it is shutdown quite late. bsc#898669
- regenerate initrd on installation. bsc#898669
2014-08-29 - tchvatal@suse.com
- Adjust the service to start early enough for all usecases.
Should fix bnc#892096.
