Version check

Try this patch, I am not sure if its affected by the work queue changes with 2.6.20 - and I don't have the hardware handy, but I figured I would write the version check patch at least - this patch should apply cleanly to beta1, and also work with kernels 2.6.19 and below (at least)

I did something similar by hand to make it compile for me, but I am trying out your patch and cant get it to apply...

I tried to use this in the ebuild:

src_unpack() {
        epatch ${FILESDIR}/${P}-version-check.patch

I'm sure it is my fault but it is complaining that it can't find the files to patch.

I also tried to have the ebuild apply the patch and failed. The ebuild seems to completely bypass unpack(), but I don't know how. I wonder if it has anything to do with the linux-mod eclass. But I looked at the eclass code and didn't find anything that seems to override the default behavior of unpack(). I was going to submit the bug upstream, since that's where I think it belongs, but ... I don't have an account at berlios. Yeah, I know. Laziness kicked in.

The patch easly works when i do it by hand, if someone could add it to the tree it would be nice :)
Comment 5 Emmanuel Rosa 2007-04-01 16:37:57 UTC
I've added a bug report for a CVS ebuild ( It compiles and runs with my 2.6.20 kernel. The only thing broken now is Xorg :(
