Description Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-01-15 12:56:57 UTC
25 Aug 2005; Brent Baude <> iprutils-
  Adding a dependancy for hotplug to iprutils- so that the
  microcode update utility will work.

Uhm, this really doesn't work w/ recent udev only? See Bug 147006 and Bug 145809 for reasons why I'd like the unconditional dependency to go away and be switched to something like || ( >=sys-fs/udev-096 sys-apps/hotplug )

I'm fine with this solution. although ranger should comment on this, too.
Comment 3 Brent Baude (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-04-08 12:52:17 UTC
I remember adding it because it didnt work without.  is there a reason why we should break the two?  This would require a fair amount of testing, but if there is a good reason, I am happy to go through it.

tgall says ranger is the one that things need to be checked with.
