UNIX — Unix domain sockets


If you say yes here, you will include support for Unix domain sockets; sockets are the standard Unix mechanism for establishing and accessing network connections. Many commonly used programs such as the X Window System, syslog, and udev use these sockets even if your machine is not connected to any network. Unless you are working on an embedded system or something similar, you therefore definitely want to say yes here.
