I committed a little bit of cleanup / some XXX comments to the soundsystem, extended the linux(4) man page a little bit and removed some alpha specific section 4 man pages which where overlooked at the time alpha was removed from current.
I think I will enjoy the sun in the backyard a little bit now… 😎
Portmgr committed the switch to the new default linux base port yesterday. After returning home from work I committed the corresponding UPDATING entry.
Today I marked all unmaintained/old linux base ports as deprecated (some are marked because they are EOL, some are marked because of bitrod). I use a expiration time of about 3 months. So while there’s plenty of time to update, you should do it now.
I just removed the COMPAT_43 option from the GENERIC kernel in current. This may result in increased performance for some workloads.
In the last days I also “mentored” a little bit my SoC students. Reviewing some changes, suggesting some imrovements, committing some stuff which is ready, discussing various things and so on.
And last but not least, I hope that the last bugs in the update to the new linux base port are ironed out on the ports build cluster (I did some commits in the last days).
Just committed the FC4 port Boris did after Joe did the repocopy (Thanks Joe!). It seems this is the newest FC based linux_base port we can use with the current linuxolator.
