dkms-2.0.5.ebuild

I would recommend the category sys-kernel.
Comment 2 Joseph Pingenot 2006-02-07 12:07:51 UTC
any updates on this?  This would potentially be pretty handy to have.
Comment 3 Carsten Lohrke (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-02-12 12:52:51 UTC
- S="${WORKDIR}/${P}" is superfluous
- fix the ebuild header
Comment 4 Carsten Lohrke (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-02-12 12:52:51 UTC
- S="${WORKDIR}/${P}" is superfluous
- fix the ebuild header¹ and reopen

dkms 2.0.9 ebuild

Removed specification of "S" var, fixed header, updated version to latest available. Verified that it installs correctly.

Reopening per developer feedback.

Is this still maintained? Fetching the source fails.

Yes. See http://linux.dell.com/dkms/

This is needed for bug #272100 and possibly for others too. How is the progress on this bug going?
Comment 12 Brad Allen 2010-06-13 15:14:44 UTC
I'm seeing recommendation to use DKMS from BTRFS project at <https://btrfs.wiki.kernel.org/index.php/Btrfs_source_repositories>.

Is there something incompatible between DKMS and Gentoo regarding the theories of source management?  Is this another jealousy thing from some parochial Gentoo lords?  Is DKMS some arcane management tool that's simply not in widespread use?  Is DKMS clunky?  Is it something which requires a lot of management from module developers, or from distribution maintainers?
Comment 13 Cynede gentoo-dev 2013-09-03 09:01:24 UTC
Is there some block for this request? There is 2.2 version already.
