Just looking at the fam package, and note that it is described as below

Description: File Alteration Monitor
FAM monitors files and directories, notifying interested
This package provides a server that can monitor a given list of
notify applications through a socket. *If the kernel supports
** (kernels >= 2.4.x) FAM is notified directly by the kernel.
has to poll the files' status. FAM can also provide an RPC
monitoring remote files (such as on a mounted NFS filesystem).
Given we're running 4.x kernels now, and inotify long replaced dnotify,
I am curious if fam relies on dnotify or has in fact been adapted to use
inotify and this package description is simply out of date. Not
immediately easy to assume that it is in fact so out of date.
