Bonjour à tous,

Voilà une question que je me pose depuis un moment sans trouver de réponse...
Quand j'ai installé ma première Gentoo le processus permettant de "faire connaître" à gnome qu'un fichier avait été modifié était fam, puis il a été remplacé par gamin (il me semble l'avoir lu dans un ebuild ou une doc de migration officielle ?...).

Après avoir installé sur un pc une gentoo + gnome sans aucun " File Alteration monitor" (ni gamin, ni fam) qui fonctionne à merveille, et a fortiori de constater que gnome ne dépendait ni de fam, ni de gamin, je me retrouve perplexe..

Puis je supprimer gamin sans risques ? A t'il vraiment une utilité pour gnome, ou certains soft ?

Merci d'avance :D

Hello,

La réponse est ici. Je cite le message complet :
Quote:

glib is not a system package. glib was simply pulled into the dependency tree to satisfy dbus-glib (needed by consolekit) and gamin dependencies.
On a linux system with inotify support for userspace enabled (CONFIG_INOTIFY_USER) USE=fam does not give any benefits to glib, because it can use inotify directly if present for userspace and it doesn't fallback to fam/gamin then.
USE=fam exists in glib mostly for Gentoo/FreeBSD purposes now as they don't have inotify, you can put "dev-libs/glib -fam" (without quote) to your /etc/portage/package.use directory or file if you do have userspace inotify support (that is a very very good idea to have). We are still figuring out how to solve this problem properly - if to package.use.mask fam for linux systems and assume inotify support is present, or breaking gamin into two packages to solve the circular (gamin consists of a server and a library and those split into two packages breaks the circular)

Donc, si CONFIG_INOTIFY_USER dans le kernel, fam/gamin inutile sur linux (enfin en tout cas en ce qui concerne glib et gnome).
