Subject: [gentoo-dev] net-irc/xchat-xsys: Test request for ~x86 & ~amd64
Date: Sun, 17 Apr 2005 11:34:25

1 Could any xchat-xsys users that are not afraid of using an experimental
2 patch unmask version 1.9.3 with /etc/portage/package.unmask and see if
3 the /video output gives you the right information.
4 If I get 10 reports that it works, I'll unmask it and unleash it on ~x86
5 and ~amd64.
6 (Any other arches will most probably miss out on some CPU-related
7 information, tell me if at least /video works, and I'll try to get it
8 supported fully).
10 What the patch does is getting rid of the lspci dependency. Upstream
11 reports that it can cause stale processes that will not disappear until
12 X-Chat is closed.
13 The code in question has been replaced with a sysfs tree-walker that
14 should find the AGP video card in any system. If anyone out there has a
15 PCI-Express adapter, I'd like to know if this code finds it or not.
17 Thanks,
18 Tony (Chainsaw).
