Description Max Loparev 2005-09-16 12:05:15 UTC
I've applied patch from ejabberd maillist and its works fine for a week now on
my ejabberd server.
btw, dependence on tk now depends on X flag.

epoll patch
Comment 3 Matthew Kennedy (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-10-18 14:06:45 UTC
I used your ebuild from Comment #1 and adjusted it to get the poll patch from
distfiles, rather than in files/ to save space.  I changed the file name to use
MY_PV. Attached is my diff from 10.2.6 to the adjusted ebuild for 10.2.7.

I tried it out, it seems to work fine.  vapier, I can commit it to the tree if you
consent.  I have recomputed/checked the other patches we apply.

Comment 5 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2005-10-18 15:31:36 UTC
any chance we can make sure upstream erlang is aware of the epoll patch before
we start using it ?

if you want to test & commit this patch, that'd be cool
Comment 7 Matthew Kennedy (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-10-20 07:09:04 UTC
On second thoughts, perhaps we should apply the epoll patch via a local USE flag?

diff erlang-10.2.{6,7}.ebuild

Support for local USE flag, "epoll".
Comment 9 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2005-10-20 10:01:49 UTC
i dont think we should bother with that ... a quick glance at the code shows
that it should fall back to other poll methods if epoll fails to work
Comment 10 Matthew Kennedy (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-10-29 13:26:55 UTC
Commit Attachement #70981 to portage. Thanks for the bug report and epoll
