Subject: [gentoo-dev] why? pciutils with zlib use-flag went stable on x86

1 Hi,
3 so today, pciutils-2.2.4-r3 went stable on x86.
4 It's a known issue, that pciutils compiled with zlib use-flag turned on
5 (which is default) doesn't work with the version of hal, which is
6 currently stable on x86.
8 So at the moment, hal-0.5.9-r1 is stable on x86. It went stable weeks or
9 even months ago. Now, pciutils-2.2.4-r3 is compiled with zlib use-flag
10 turned on. There are now warning, errors, or any other messages about
11 the zlib use-flag - well, until you recompile hal.
13 The hal-ebuild checks, whether pciutils has been built with or without
14 the zlib use-flag. But what is this check worth, if people have already
15 upgraded hal weeks ago and the uncompatibility between pciutils and hal
16 is now unnoticed?
19 Why did you provocate this breakage?
22 This is not a good idea, IMHO.
