Summary: lirc-0.7.0_pre7 fails saying use config-kernel
Product: Gentoo Linux Reporter: Roman Gaufman <hackeron>

Description Roman Gaufman 2005-01-18 15:28:06 UTC
* Due to the 2.6 kernel build system, external module compilation
 * with a normal setup requires write access to //usr/src/linux
 * There are several ways to fix/prevent this.
 * Users can willingly let portage make this writable by doing
 * # config-kernel --allow-writable yes
 * However, this is considered a security risk!
 * The prefered method is to enable Gentoo's new 'koutput' method
 * for kernel modules. See the doc
 * To enable this, you'll need to run
 * # config-kernel --output-dir /var/tmp/kernel-output
 * and then install a new kernel

!!! ERROR: app-misc/lirc-0.7.0_pre7 failed.
!!! Function kmod_make_linux_writable, Line 214, Exitcode 0
!!! Incompatible kernel setup
!!! If you need support, post the topmost build error, NOT this status message.

I think it should say enable i2c and the various other modules needed since config-kernel seems to be deprecated and recommended against.

Well, now that 0.7.0-r1 is marked stable, everything works fine. Thanks.
