Subject: [gentoo-dev] turning off a default compile option
Date: Mon, 05 Jul 2004 13:36:48
1 I was talking to g2boojum and he suggested I ask on here. I was going
2 through my bind bugs recently and came upon
5 The user would like a way to disable linux compatability if your kernel
6 does not support it by using the 'caps' use flag. Maybe I dont fully
7 understand 'linux compatability' but if we're all running Gentoo, arent
8 we all running linux in the first place?
10 My problem surfaces: Bind enables 'linux compatability' by default.
11 Gentoo does have a linux compability flag (caps), but this is only to
12 ENABLE linux compatability, not to disable it. I attempted to use the
13 bugger's suggestion, but repoman got pissed on a full scan. Grant
14 mentioned maybe making 'caps' part of the default use flag.
16 Basically I'd like a way of using a "reverse" use flag, -caps, and if
17 -caps is set, disable linux compat; if the flag is not set, do not add
18 any --config-option at all.
20 I'm up for any suggestions.
