Version: 1.6.12 Vendor: SUSE LLC <>
Release: 6.3.1 Build date: Fri Mar 27 09:21:19 2020

Summary: GeoLite country data for GeoIP
This package does not actually contain any data. It only exists to
give ownership the database files you can fetch using






* Thu Mar 26 2020
  - Update README.SUSE with a description how to get the latest Geo IP
    data after the distribution changes
    (jsc#SLE-11184, bsc#1156194, jsc#ECO-1405)
  - geoip-fetch is now obsolete and just points to the README
* Wed Aug 01 2018
  - can't package database in /var/lib/GeoIP anymore as it breaks with
    transactional updates (boo#1093352). Ideally one would put the
    static version in /usr/share with the files in /var overriding
    that. Since GeoIP is considered deprecated in favor of
    libmaxminddb anyways, we'll just ship GeoIP-data as empty shell to
    own the files for uninstall.
* Thu Mar 15 2018
  - Update to version 1.6.12:
    * Populate metro and area code when performing lookups in IPv6
      City databases. Previously this was only done when using IPv4
      City databases.
  - Modernise spec file with spec-cleaner
* Thu Nov 16 2017
  - Rectify RPM groups.
    Remove pointless --with-pic since there are no static libs.
* Thu Nov 16 2017
  - Update to version 1.6.11:
    * Fix use of a NULL pointer when opening a corrupt database with
    * GeoIP_database_info now returns the full version string rather
      than incorrectly truncating it.
* Thu Jun 16 2016
  - Fix compilation errors seen by GCC6.
* Thu Feb 04 2016
  - Update to 1.6.9
    * Fix a regression introduced in version 1.6.8, which caused
      GeoIP_database_info to erroneously return NULL.
  - Changes for 1.6.8
    * Allow compilation on older systems by relaxing the autoconf
      and automake minimum versions. Thank you, Jose Rubio!
    * Avoid potential problems in multi-threaded environments by
      consistently using pread() rather than read().
    * Fix various small issues reported by clang's static analyser.
* Mon Nov 16 2015
  - Update to 1.6.7
    * Fixed a MSVC parser stack overflow when parsing regionName.c
      and timeZone.c. Fix by elliotlo. GitHub #64.
    * Updated region codes and timezones.
      When using GEOIP_MEMORY_CACHE with an invalid database file,
      the search tree traversal could attempt to read memory outside
      of the memory allocated for the memory cache, resulting in a
      segmentation fault. A check was added to ensure that the
      traversal code does not try to read beyond the end of the file,
      whether in memory, memory mapped, or on disk.
    * Previously the return values from file reads were ignored. We now
      check these values to ensure that there were no errors.
  - copy the tools from the debian package to work with the database
    files. new BR gcc-c++. Files are installed into the same path as
    on debian /usr/lib/geoip/. new binaries:
* Mon Sep 28 2015
  - Update to 1.6.6
    * Replaced usage of deprecated fileno, read, and lseek on Visual
      Studio 2005+ with their ISO C++ conformant replacements.
    * A warning about using a double as a float was fixed.
    * Fixed segfault when doing a lookup on an empty database.
    * Fixed a memcheck error from valgrind in the _check_mtime
    * Fixed _check_mtime to check the return value of gettimeofday
      rather than just assuming it worked.
* Thu Mar 12 2015
  - Remove unused zlib build requirement
  - fix pubpackage arch build error, for SLE 11 SP3
* Tue Mar 10 2015
  * Updated LICENSE, using the upstream version.
    * The GPL license has been removed:test-driver is licensed under the GPL but
    is not packaged, libGeoIPUpdate is no longer part of the package.
    * Changed handling of ghost files.
    * Moved data into a seperate package.
* Fri Mar 06 2015
  - Update to 1.6.5
    * A segmentation fault in geoiplookup was fixed when the utility
      was passed an invalid database. (Reported in Red Hat
      bug #1180874.)
    * Additional validation was added for validation of the size used
      in the creation of the index cache. (Based on discussion in
      Red Hat bug #832913.)
    * Changed the code to only look up country codes by using
      functions which ensure that we do not try to look past the end
      of an array. (Reported by Ivan Sorokin. GitHub #53)
* Sat Feb 21 2015
  - Disable checks, they fail with currently provided data file.
