  • KDBUS Is Still Outstanding, Not Part Of The Mainline Kernel

    Phoronix: KDBUS Is Still Outstanding, Not Part Of The Mainline Kernel

    While the KDBUS kernel D-Bus code was quick to advance and garner interest by upstream kernel developers and other stakeholders, with plans of merging KDBUS into the Linux kernel in 2014, it hasn't happened yet...

    Then you have the privledge... and by privledge I mean: sole duty, responsibility, unpaid requirement-of-life, of designing, speccing, and coding a top-of-the-line IPC protocol and system for the kernel! All on your own!

    The kernel goes in whatever directions the people who code for it decide it goes in, within reason. Everyone else gets to shut their pie-hole unless it is to thank the developers for providing them with a free operating system.

      Greg's KDBUS repository also hasn't been touched in nearly one month.
      development takes place here: https://code.google.com/p/d-bus/

      latest commit is 3 days old.

        I agree, except it should be okay to kindly request things. Though most people act like they are Linus' boss or something.

          Care to expand? How is it crap? Dbus and IPC is and has been a core part of at least the linux desktop for years. Kdbus aims to make it better: faster (less context switches) and more efficient (less copying about).

          Like most kernel stuff, it surely will be made available as a module that can be compiled out.

          What's the issue? Don't confuse kdbus with systemd or anything else...

            Welcome to the internet where people who probably can't program worth a crap talk out of their ass all day long.

              TL;DR of the article: "Nothing happened."

                maybe he did that already unwillingly by his rant 2 month ago:

                remember?
                maybe the kdbus developers are just offended now and stopped working on it...

                  according to Poetterings talk today at linuxcon japan, they are waiting for some AIO changes to hit mainline first. He couldnt state a date for kdbus to enter mainline because of it, but said that kdbus in it self is basically ready.
