Description Anthony Basile gentoo-dev 2011-08-04 10:29:11 UTC
sys-fs/sysfsutils is broken and dead upstream.  Dependency on it needs to be
removed so we can remove it from the tree.

I noticed libsysfs is not essential for this package to compile. Is it even necessary for all the package's tools to work? I don't really know how to use the package, but when I compile openhpi-3.2.0 with libsysfs support, it only has one more file with the u+x bit (plugins/sysfs/.libs/ when compared to compiling it without libsysfs support.

I mean to say: it looks like libsysfs might be just one of the possible means of accessing something - and thus a replaceable means. But I don't know how to use the package. Just a hint.
