Re: best way to get feature of systemd v248 in yocto-hardknott (systemd v247)?

Bill Plunkett

Thanks Nicolas.

I was able to get what I needed by backporting the relevant changes (DHCP client LinkLocal address fallback) into the systemd v247 source.  It was a little ugly, but is working now.

I was afraid to try the full systemd v249.

To backport a newer version, I usually just take the trial and error
route by copying the recipe to a custom layer and then, if necessary,
resolving missing or outdated dependencies on the go. This works most
of the time, but it could get a bit more complicated for systemd if
something fundamentally changed.
