Description Konstantin Münning 2013-02-13 15:17:15 UTC

Please add a use flag for the configure option --with-dont-check-for-root of sys-libs/freeipmi in official ebuild. Thank you.
Comment 1 Sergey Popov gentoo-dev 2014-03-04 09:21:16 UTC
I would call this flag either 'without-root', 'unpriv' or 'unpriv-user'
Comment 2 Konstantin Münning 2014-03-04 10:16:35 UTC
Any of these would be fine for me.
