Freshmeat page:


kchuid is an experimental Linux kernel module that allows you to change the UID/GID/CAPS of a running process (by PID). Think of it as providing a setuid() system call that also has a pid_t argument. But it can do more now: It can alter the working directory and "root" of another process, so it's just about ready for replacing /bin/login. This is the first step in a full authentication system, and further, a full Unixish system devoid of setuid binaries/scripts.

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.

If you're a C programmer with some spare time, take a look at the mod_virgule project page and help us with one of the tasks on the ToDo list!
