The plex86 ebuild contains the configure option
Unfortunately, on machines with 2.6.0 kernels this causes the plex86 compile
to die with a whole bunch of errors. (see
http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?p=535619 for an example.)
plex86 should ideally be told to use the kernel header files in
any newS ?
what's the status of this?
Re-assigning stale bugs. Someone pick this up or remove the ebuild from portage.
plex86 has many issues and no simple solution to all of them. Considering the
amount of very old kernel code it has, including the way it deals with devfs,
for example, it does not look like it will be easy to fix.
plex86 has three outstanding bugs at the time of this writing: bug 54526, bug
29159 and bug 17388. I have the feeling that if anybody was going to get them
fixed, they would have done so by now.
qemu should fill plex86's role in the future.
I'll probably remove plex86 from the tree very shortly. If anybody feels
different, you're welcome to reopen plex86 bugs and fix them :-)
