polkit memory leak RHEL 6

Latest response

Are there any plans to update polkit in RHEL 6? The current version in RHEL has a known memory leak issue.


Patrick, can you post the version (rpm) of polkit you are referring to? as "current" will change context over time when others read this thread.

The fastest resolution for this issue would be to raise it with Red Hat Support formally.

The memory leak was fixed in 0.98 of polkit.
