gensio-2.6.7-3.fc37 and ser2net-4.3.13-5.fc37

FEDORA-2023-2d46eb11dc created by heffer 12 months ago for Fedora 37

Fixes ser2net not starting due to missing sysuser ser2net which is defined in the new upstream systemd unit file.

In the course of fixing that by adding the sysuser I also had to fix UUCP locking. Otherwise ser2net (now no longer running as root) was unable to create UUCP lockfiles when a user connected to a network proxied serial port.

The fix entails:

  • requiring lockdev in libgensio (as this is where the locking happens)
  • setting the UUCP lock path in libgensio to /run/lock/lockdev
  • creating a sysuser for ser2net
  • adding that user to the dialout group to allow access to serial devices
  • adding that user to the lock group to allow access to the lock directory
