Subject: [gentoo-dev] Pending Removal of $KV
Date: Mon, 19 Jun 2006 15:18:06
1 Portage currently exports $KV as the current kernel version. We detect
2 this by attempting to mess around with the things in /usr/src/linux
3 (.config, make files, etc...)
5 This is duplicating the superb efforts of the kernel team and of
6 linux-info eclass. As such I would like to deprecate $KV in favor of
7 using linux-info eclass. I don't see the need for portage to export $KV
8 into the environment for all packages.
10 There are a few packages left that use this. There will be a tracker
11 bug shortly. Mostly this mail is just a heads up ;)
