I couldn't agree more. If you're not building a kernel module, there shouldn't ever be a reason why the package should die in pkg_setup. We hit this *every* release with at least one package that completely breaks GRP building, since the GRP target doesn't have a configured kernel. We always have to use hacks and workarounds to resolve the issue. With a new release coming soon, now would be an excellent time to start fixing all of these that aren't fixed. Release Engineering will send jforman over to love you long time if you don't. *grin* -- Chris Gianelloni Release Engineering - Strategic Lead x86 Architecture Team Games - Developer Gentoo Linux
