Description Ioannis Aslanidis (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-08-04 00:27:50 UTC
Perhaps it is well-known, but is there a workaround to make qingy work with these kernel series?

The most we can expect when using qingy with kernel 2.6.7 is a hangup.

I am aware that s4t4n is on the move on this one.

Additional forum URLs:

As refered to the first URL, it seems that it does work with kernels 2.6.8, so I would advise to put a note when emerging qingy... and also to upgrade gentoo-dev-sources to kernel 2.6.8

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use qingy with gentoo-dev-sources (kernel 2.6.7)
Actual Results:  
Spawning qingy hangs the computer.

Comment 1 Michele Noberasco (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-08-14 05:52:48 UTC
I'm in the midst of compiling the new 2.6.8 vanilla sources, let's see if they resolve these issues...
Comment 2 Ioannis Aslanidis (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-08-14 09:52:19 UTC
I hope it works with the new kernel. Otherwise there might be needed a code revision in qingy.
Comment 3 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2004-08-14 10:11:09 UTC
added a warning to 0.4.1
Comment 4 Ioannis Aslanidis (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-08-15 03:21:28 UTC
Final comment: qingy does work with kernel 2.6.8 but with problems. Opening a new bug: 60402
