Sadly other distributions do not do that to this moment (afaict) - Arch, Gentoo, Fedora (?), Suse (?).
To put it bluntly - with one approach things will eventually break [and get fixed by distro maintainers], while with the other things will just work. Afaict the latter does add much more code/complexity over the former, right ? -Emil _______________________________________________ waffle mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.freedesktop.org/mailman/listinfo/waffle
