Subject: [gentoo-dev] deblobbing kernel sources redux (ATTN all overlays with kernel sources packages)
Date: Mon, 26 Apr 2010 08:08:44
1 This notice is mainly intended for everybody that maintains kernel
2 sources ebuilds in their overlay.
4 This evening I merged the deblob support from bug #266157, and depending
5 on your kernel source ebuilds, you may need to run a digest pass or
6 tweak them.
8 There are two new variables recognized by kernel-2.eclass now:
9 K_DEBLOB_AVAILABLE - ternary [0, 1, empty], is deblogging available,
10 not, or should we try to guess?
11 K_PREDEBLOBBED - binary, your sources already have blobs removed
13 If you want your kernel sources ebuilds to never be considered for
14 deblobbing, add the following line BEFORE kernel-2 is inherited:
17 If your kernel source ebuilds are >=2.6.27, and you do not add the above
18 line, you will need to run a digest pass on them for the new distfile.
