Gentoo management system

Just found this.
http://tux.myftp.org/kuroo

It is designed to be a a KDE frontend to portage.
Any chance to get a qt-mac ebuild and try to to a port to pure Qt?
I assume a KDE based on qt-mac (which should technically be possible) is
still too much of work.

Regrads

I think this has been done, but would require some major figuring out
how to do it and put it in an ebuild. There are/were /. posts of
Koffice running natively on OSX, however, that has never got a
continuation AFAIK.

KDE 3.4.3 and KOffice 1.4.1 native seem to be in Fink, and they seem to be
maintained
Ant there are even some information about needed patches on
http://gentoo-wiki.com/MacOS_Native_KDE.

Given the presupposition that somebody got a clean build of qt-mac on
Gentoo-OSX, how difficult would be a basic ebuild?
I think trying to compile and build a Unix library on a Mac system I could
get working, but I until now had no success creating
and running an ebuild from scratch.

Regards
Dirk

If you have the steps to get it compiled, creating an ebuild out of it
should be not that hard. Most of the work is in getting the
dependencies right, and making sure that it will work on more than just
your own system.

I/We can definitely help with that.

So, to just get this started: I just successfully compiled qt-mac-free-3.3.5
on Mac OSX Tiger.
The build uses the standard ./configure && make && make install.
Important: you have to define the correct platform, with
"./configure -platform macx-g++"
The rest seems to be like on qt-x11.

According to the docs Qt prefers to be run in an app folder, but I got a
console application after specifying the correct DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH.

Regards
Dirk

Some news.
I created a _really_ basic ebuild for qt-mac-free and was able to
successfully digest it, i.e. downloading the needed tar gz automatically.
The ebuild can be used to create abinary package (I dod not do an actual
install, yet)

Currently you have to do an ebuild with the actual ebuild file.
If this is to be continued, possibly a new gentoo category is needed.

Regards
Dirk
