Our task-base is restructured now into separate task-base-* ones. Each
feature got own metapackage and task-base contain all needed ones for
But there comes problem. Many of our devices have PCI or Pcmcia/CF or USB
Host functionality but do not have integrated Wifi or BT so users adds
external 'cards/dongles' to get it. With current task-base they do not
get them working without installing extra task-base-* packages.
I wrote small patch which change this. If Distro feature wifi then machine
with pcmcia/pci/usbhost feature will get task-base-wifi added into
task-base. Same goes for Bluetooth.
Someone can say that why not add usbhost support for pcmcia/pci machines -
All our pci machines already feature usbhost. USB controllers for cf
devices are expensive so only small amount of users have them.
Read patch, comment, complain.
Beware of Programmers who carry screwdrivers.
