Given what I've wrote about three years ago in bug 220347, does libsysfs still work ?

Yes, I know net-misc/iputils use it, but it's not exactly a well maintained package (in regard of upstream, of course - it's been on IV for how long again ?).
Comment 2 Greg Kroah-Hartman (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2011-08-03 15:37:53 UTC
No, it doesn't work, and is not supported, and I would be amazed if it even did anything anymore.

So I'll just close this out as the whole package should be removed one day soon.

gregkh: removal of it isn't going to be easy, there are a lot of packages that depend on it.

Oh, I know, but odds are those packages aren't really using the library
as it hasn't worked in a long time.
Comment 5 Anthony Basile gentoo-dev 2011-08-04 01:52:59 UTC
Should we open up a tracker bug to track the removal of the library from those packages?

Obviously, or otherwise this bug should get reopened, and what has said would get lost.
