Description lenzi.sergio 2014-10-14 03:04:49 UTC
Created attachment 148285 [details]
this patches the file files/patch-hald_freebsd_probing_probe-video4linux.c

When you build a custom kernel, generally you do not put optios STACK in the kernel, so the sysctl kern.proc.pid is not available
Hal needs that sysctl in order to detect video interfaces. but it is only a test, so can work without that test.

A patch to fix this issue (in the attach) fixes the file /usr/ports/sysutils/hal/files

Than cheese and others that needs hal detection will have /dev/videoX

This PR timed out, moving to patch ready (gnome approval no longer required)

on a side note, I have no idea how the auto-assigner figured out this was a gnome@ port with the given title.

Build-test on 10.1a, 9.3a, 8.4i has build fail on 8.4i:

Comment 6 Kurt Jaeger freebsd_committer 2015-05-21 19:57:24 UTC
builds on 10.1i, so it's not an i386 problem.
