Description Gabor Kovesdan freebsd_committer 2009-06-03 19:10:01 UTC
So far we haven't had a unified support for dealing with cases where a specific
version of Linux emulation is necessary.  We have the same for GCC versions or
Perl version but not for Linux emulation, so I thought it would be useful to
add similar knobs to the Ports Collection infrastructure.  Also, the current
IGNORE reasons that ports give, don't seem quite clear to our users, I got a
PR for my Gentoo port because a user couldn't understand the actual problem.
This is another reason I thought of unifying this part.

Responsible Changed
From-To: freebsd-ports-bugs->portmgr

bsd.port.mk is portmgr territory (via the GNATS Auto Assign Tool)

Ping? I still think it would be a nice feature.

Infrastructure PR.
Comment 4 Edward Tomasz Napierala freebsd_committer 2020-01-08 15:39:21 UTC
I'm not sure it's worth the effort.  Given currently reported version of 3.2.0, are there any packages which depend on it being set to some other value?
Comment 5 Edward Tomasz Napierala freebsd_committer 2021-03-11 19:21:02 UTC
Not sure what was the original motivation, back in 2009, but I'm not aware of any software that depends on a particular kernel version other than the latest supported.
