memlockd (1.2) unstable; urgency=low
* debian/control: Add dh-systemd (>= 1.4) to Build-Depends - required to use
dh_systemd helpers
* debian/rules: Add dh_systemd_enable and dh_systemd_start in proper places
Thanks Michał Zając <> for the above.
Closes: #714957
* Changed to Debhelper compat level 9.
* Removed readdir_r() as it's deprected and readdir() now does everything
we need.
* Added $ARCH as a config option for specifiying the host architecture
according to uname(2).
* Compile with -O2

memlockd (1.1.1) unstable; urgency=high
* Made it work correctly with systemd, restarts via systemd and doesn't use
a pidfile.
Closes: #678161
2012-06-16 - Russell Coker <>
memlockd (1.1) unstable; urgency=high
* Use wheezy paths for shared objects on i386 and amd64.  Also added a new
config file option to not log file not found errors so we don't see i386
errors on amd64 and amd64 errors on i386.
Closes: #660321, #480915
* Added systemd service file.
Closes: #652386
* Added a run-parts style config directory, default is /etc/memlock.d and
the config file uses a % to chain to another file or directory.
Closes: #529265
2011-01-11 - Russell Coker <>
memlockd (1.0) unstable; urgency=low
* Changed the default config to have library names that work on AMD64
and to include killall and ps.
* Better use of variables in the makefile.
* Put a copyright statement in the main source file and change the license
to GPLv3.
* Version 1.0, with no serious changes for 3 years it's good for that.
2008-05-07 - Russell Coker <>
memlockd (0.05) unstable; urgency=low
* Stopped including asm/page.h because we didn't use it since 0.03-0.2.
Closes: #479968
2008-03-29 - Petter Reinholdtsen <>
memlockd (0.04-0.1) unstable; urgency=low

memlockd (0.03-0.1) unstable; urgency=low

2007-03-13 - Russell Coker <>
memlockd (0.03) unstable; urgency=medium
* Fixed section and description.
* Made it write a pidfile, and also made the restart option of the init.d
script start a new instance unconditionally so the new instance can kill
the old.  This means that there is no window where memlockd is not
