Request addition of the linux-gpib driver to yum
Last modified: 2010-12-05 01:45:25 EST
Description of problem: Request addition of the linux-gpib driver (http://linux-gpib.sourceforge.net/) to yum.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 3.2.11
How reproducible: always
Steps to Reproduce:
The first step would likely be getting the kernel drivers upstream, if they are not already.
The drivers are not upstream.
The drivers would need lots of work before acceptance upstream:
They don't use standard PCI driver init methods.
Keeps a private list of GPIB devices with private methods.
Lots of style problems.
The source tarball is a mix of linux driver code and user library and utility code; I didn't look at the library and utilities.
Should we just close this as WONTFIX?
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 12 development cycle.
Changing version to '12'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
This message is a reminder that Fedora 12 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 12. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '12'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 12's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 12 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Yes, It will be great if you add this drivers to Fedora OS.
Witch additional information you need?
Fedora 12 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-12-02. Fedora 12 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
