DragonFly kernel List (threaded) for 2003-07
Re: Synching patch for src/bin/Makefile
: Also, we need to axe a few more things, like KerberosIV and
: netns. Also, it might be a good idea to nuke Perl from base,
: but that's a big step for now I think. Curretly, we need to get
: DragonFly in a state which is almost up-to-scratch with 5.x,
: userland wise, because around the base, there are a lot of
: asumptions made on the kernel, such as some sysctl oids etc, and
: some particular functionality which doesn't exist in
KerberosIV can be removed at any time. Perl has to stick around for
the forseeable future.
Generally speaking sysctl OID dependancies should be changed over
to sysctl-by-name, but it isn't critical. There are still a lot of
hardwired sysctls in use by applications, some not even using macros,
so finding and fixing all the dependancies is not trivial.
