Description Paul Taylor 2006-04-19 18:50:17 UTC
sys-apps/hotplug-20040923-r2 produces the following installation message:
   * If you still have the file /etc/hotplug/isapnp.rc on your system,
   * please delete it by hand, the file /etc/hotplug/pnp.rc superseeds it.

However, this file is actually installed by hotplug:
   # equery belongs /etc/hotplug/isapnp.rc
   [ Searching for file(s) /etc/hotplug/isapnp.rc in *... ]
   sys-apps/hotplug-20040923-r2 (/etc/hotplug/isapnp.rc)
Deleting the file, then re-emerging hotplug causes it to be recreated.

If the message is correct, hotplug shouldn't create this file; if it isn't correct, the message should be removed or amended.

Heh, good catch.  The file now contains nothing, but we don't realize it...
Comment 2 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-09-04 00:04:55 UTC
sys-apps/hotplug is useless with any recent udev version, and 2.4 kernels are no longer supported. Unmerge it and move on.
