Description Claudio Calvelli 2021-05-04 12:45:17 UTC
After upgrading net-dialup/minicom to 2.8, it creates /etc/minicom/minirc.dfl but the installed program looks for it in /etc/minirc.dfl

This seems to be related to the following econf option missing from the ebuild (it was present in minicom-2.7.1.ebuild):


So the ebuild is inconsistent in that it asks for minirc to be in the default sysconfdir (${prefix}/etc) but it installs it in /etc/minicom

I can confirm this regression.

Additionally, the existing configuration files in /etc/minicom/ are no longer used.
