digitalmars.D.announce - Status of gentoo ebuild?

Is there somebody maintaining gentoo ebuilds?

Currently there is 1.016 and 2.008 in the official portage tree, but 2.008
can't compile the phobos libraries.

There is also an overlay for d, but it seems to be also unmaintained. The
versions 1.014 and 1.020 are available, which are also rather old.

Please file a bug for this in Gentoo's bugzilla. If the current maintainer doesn't have time any more for maintaining dmd I can take over ;)

I've posted an ebuild for dmd-2.012 from my personal overlay here [1]. Please let me know if there are any problems with it. It works for me but needs a little bit of clean-up. Best, Markus [1] http://dev.gentoo.org/~markusle/dmd-bin/dmd-bin-2.012.ebuild

Hi Markus,

Done. :-) See bug 212793.

It would be great! :-)

Thank you very much! I've just tried it out and unfortunately it has the same problem as the ebuild for v2.008 has. (Compilitaion error with the phobos libraries.) The problem should be fixed in gentoo CVS for v2.008 (see bug 206346), probably it's the same issue. Many thanks and regards, David
