Description Patrik Backlund 2002-05-18 20:10:01 UTC
If devel/fam is not installed nautilus configure will complain with the
following message (but still work):

checking for FAMOpen in -lfam... no
configure: warning: *** FAM support will not be built (FAM library not 
found) Nautilus depends on FAM to provide notification when files are 
altered (either through filesystem polling, or a kernel notification 
mechanism). If Nautilus is built without FAM support, directories 
viewed with Nautilus will not remain in sync with the actual filesystem 
when they are altered by external processes. Particularly if you are a 
distributor please compile Nautilus with FAM support. FAM is available 
from http://oss.sgi.com/projects/fam/. A patch to add Linux Kernel 2.4 
directory notify support to FAM (highly desirable) is available from 
http://people.redhat.com/alexl/files/ ***

However if devel/fam happens to be installed on the system nautilus
will link against it, but of course no package dependency will be

Fix: Always link to and depend on devel/fam
How-To-Repeat: 1. Install devel/fam
2. Install x11-fm/nautilus
3. Remove devel/fam
