bsduck Needed and needed...
pin When I installed NetBSD for the first time, I remember I'd to collect bits and pieces of information from different places, some of which were rather old and outdated. So, I've decided to write this stuff down and publish it here.
Honestly, this was among the bits and pieces. That said to have
famd running you need
REQUIRE: DAEMON rcpbind.
If you don't need fam or to have access to NFS, than probably you won't need
Other things from the bits and pieces that I have already removed were
avahi, which might be needed in some user cases as well.
I've now removed
fam from my system and disabled
rcpbind. If, I run into any issues what so ever, I'll report them back here.
