Description Wolfgang Herget 2007-01-16 11:33:29 UTC
There is no ebuild for incron (

Incron is a daemon that executes programs when certain file system
operations take place (as offered by the kernel INOTIFY notification system),
much like time-based cron.

I have made an ebuild for this, maybe someone can improve on it
and commit it to the portage tree. (there still is a typo in the
init script, which was shamelessly ripped off gpm...)

Reproducible: Always

My version of an incron ebuild, please review (and have mercy on me, this is
one of the first ebuilds I've written).

Please, don't attach tarballs...

Comment 3 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-01-16 12:16:22 UTC
Attach a plaintext ebuild and reopen then; thanks.

not really a well done patch, but it works
Comment 6 Wolfgang Herget 2007-01-16 13:02:14 UTC
attached files as requested. reopening.
Comment 7 Paweł Hajdan, Jr. (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-01-16 14:12:06 UTC
You can perform check for kernel features in a much more clean way (example from nvidia-drivers):

inherit (...) linux-mod (...)


ebegin "Checking for MTRR support"
linux_chkconfig_present MTRR
eend $?

if [[ $? -ne 0 ]] ; then
	die "MTRR support not detected!"

Updated ebuild and patch in sunrise overlay...

Comment 10 Ryan Reich 2007-07-14 19:17:16 UTC
Apropos of the previous entry where my bug was marked a duplicate of this one...fair enough, since we both submit ebuilds for incron, but I don't want it to be lost that my bug also concerns the cron setup, and so is strictly a superset of this one.  More accurately this should be the duplicate bug, not mine...
