Description Ian Smith 2002-02-09 15:40:14 UTC
Minimal & hopefully safe, but I KNOW you'll want to change stuff to use
variables etc. that I haven't found out about.  My testing on this is ongoing
(!), but I wanted to set the ball rolling . . .

ebuild patch followed by digest:

sparky linux-sources # diff linux-sources-2.4.17-r99.ebuild

Comment 1 Daniel Robbins (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-02-09 15:46:27 UTC
This actually makes the download much bigger than if you simply download 2.4.17
and our gentoo patch.
Comment 2 Ian Smith 2002-02-09 16:01:32 UTC
. . . until 2.4.18 comes out . . .  and OK I suppose people who purge their
distfiles might not appreciate it.

Is it really such a bad idea?

Comment 3 Daniel Robbins (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-02-09 16:18:53 UTC
To download 2.4.0 and every patch since then?  Yes, that's a bad idea.  Please
don't reopen this bug
