Subject: [gentoo-dev] Remove app-emulation/plex86
Date: Sat, 17 Sep 2005 23:16:29
1 Hello there,
3 plex86 has many issues and no simple solution to all of them. Considering the
4 amount of very old kernel code it has, including the way it deals with devfs,
5 for example, it does not look like it will be easy to fix.
7 plex86 has three outstanding bugs at the time of this writing: bug 54526 <>, bug
8 29159 <> and bug 17388 <>. I have the feeling that if anybody was going to get them
9 fixed, they would have done so by now.
11 qemu should fill plex86's role in the future.
13 I'll probably remove plex86 from the tree very shortly. If anybody feels
14 different, you're welcome to reopen plex86 bugs and fix them :-)
16 Cheers,
17 Marcelo
