Subject: [gentoo-dev] linux-headers-2.6* now linux26-headers
Date: Sat, 10 Jul 2004 00:56:48
1 just a heads up - i've moved all the 2.6 header packages to
2 sys-kernel/linux26-headers so that they can be keyworded without having them
3 accidentally install on the system of a 2.4 kernel user. hopefully soon this
4 will mean we can unmask the newer glibc ebuilds on x86, which have a dep on
5 the 2.6 headers when using nptl (instead of using /usr/src/linux, which is
6 problematic at best and quite often broken at worst).
8 another note re: NPTL is that nptl no longer has a version number of it's own
9 as of 2004-06-29. i'm guessing this means that ulrich drepper considers nptl
10 to be fairly stable, but i dont think i'll be so quick to put words in his
11 mouth. when i'm sure that everything's good and calm with the linux26-headers
12 change i'll poke at making a new snapshot to see if it passes "make check"
13 yet. :)
