+ <barrucadu> I've been going through the xmlfs code, and plan to have it
+ monitor the backing store (xml file) for changes and update the presented
+ directory hierarchy when something is changed; is there a better way to
+ check a file for changes beyond checking its modification time every few
+ minutes?
+ <tschwinge> barrucadu: In the Hurd spirit, you'd use file_notice_changes
+ (fs.defs).
+ <barrucadu> thanks
+ <youpi> we should manage to work out an inotify interface around it, btw
+ <pochu> like gamin?
+ <pinotree> imho making gamin work should gain all the fam-using
+ applications
+ <pochu> (which, looking at the sources, seems to support hurd already, not
+ sure why it's not built)
+ <pinotree> pochu: the hurd_notify of gamin does not build OOTB
+ <pochu> > /build/buildd/gamin-0.1.10/./libgamin/gam_data.c:476: error:
+ 'PTHREAD_MUTEX_RECURSIVE' undeclared (first use in this function)
+ <pinotree> there are few patches in bugzilla to make it compile
+ <pochu> if they work, and you point me to them, I can upload a new gamin
+ with them included
+ <pinotree> #315644, #588337. #605246
+ <pinotree> and iirc there's something else i have locally but not send yet
+ <pochu> please check and submit :)
+ <pinotree> ah no, those three contains all the build issues
+ <pinotree> .. plus relative proposed fixes
+ <pochu> ok, I'll try to get to it soonish
+ <pinotree> and you should know about two of them already ;D
+ <pochu> please remind me if I don't :)
