Description Hans de Goede 2007-11-13 15:50:40 EST
Description of problem:
I've been working on packaging i2c-tools, see bug 380951 for the review. Most of
the tools in i2c-tools, need i2c-dev to be loaded, after some discussion on
fedora-devel-list, the conclusion was that this is best done by creating the
/dev/i2c-# device nodes statically by adding them under /lib/udev/devices, and
then using kmod to load i2c-dev as needed.

In order for this to work an alias for i2c-dev is needed in modprobe.conf.dist,
please add the following line to modprobe.conf.dist:
alias char-major-89-* i2c-dev
Comment 1 Hans de Goede 2008-02-26 15:44:12 EST
Erm, this big is trivial to fix, yet highly annoying to people who want to use
i2c-tools, ping?
Comment 2 Hans de Goede 2008-03-11 08:09:43 EDT
Hello, pingi di pingi pong, this bug is trivial to fix, so ... ping again?
Comment 3 Hans de Goede 2008-04-04 05:37:56 EDT
I'm sorry todo this, but this is _really_ trivial to fix, yet no response at
all. So please consider this your first ping (of 2) in the light of the AWOL
maintainer policy:

I just noticed a different email address of yours in the rawhide report, trying
to add that to the CC hoping you do read bugzilla mails there ...
Comment 5 Jon Masters 2008-04-04 11:23:48 EDT
Yeah, for some reason BZ has the jonathan@jonmasters.org address too, but
really, I use jcm@redhat.com for Bugzilla. Thanks.
