Description Marc Schiffbauer gentoo-dev 2016-09-20 21:55:01 UTC
This has been a real headache for me:

s2ram was broken for me with newer versions and I spent hours to find out the reason.

Today I found that CONFIG_FB_UVESA must not be set in the kernel to make it work

So I think it would be very helpful to have something like this in the ebuild

pkg_pretend() {
  if linux_config_exists; then
    linux_chkconfig_present FB_UVESA && die "FB_UVESA must not be set in the kernel"
  fi
}


TIA
