Description Anthony Basile gentoo-dev 2011-08-04 10:22:06 UTC
sys-fs/sysfsutils is broken and dead upstream.  Dependency on it needs to be
removed so we can remove it from the tree.
Comment 1 Jeroen Roovers gentoo-dev 2011-08-04 14:08:44 UTC
Stopped using libsysfs a long time ago:

Version 0.15 2005/6/29
  - builds on version 0.13 (does not use libsysfs)
    {because dlist_sort_custom() does not have filter() callback}

Version 0.14 2004/9/20
  - version of 0.13 based on libsysfs-1.20

Version 0.13 2004/8/20
  - add 'timeout' to long device option output
  - quiet (unless verbose) if no mid level (hence no SCSI devices or hosts)
