Re: [hatari-devel] Re: Hatari SCSI Driver patch

[ Thread Index | Date Index | More Archives ]


I see what you mean, but as far as I can tell the SCSI Driver code is rather
small compared to other non-optional Hatari features. If there are concerns
that the Hatari binary gets too big for some platforms it would probably be
useful to make more features optional, e.g. 68030 support.

Anyway, as a first step I have added automatic detection of whether libudev
is available. I will send Eero the diffs.

Take care
