vmware-workstation-220.127.116.110 ebuild and related files
Final ebuild package for VMware 18.104.22.168
Description Sandy McArthur 2002-04-11 19:28:53 UTC
Updated version of the VMware Workstation ebuild. From the Changelog: 11 Apr 2002; William McArthur <firstname.lastname@example.org>: New version of VMware Workstation released. The ebuild was updated for this version. The Gentoo (/etc/init.d/vmware) init script was changed to capture the output from the VMware (/etc/vmware/init.d/vmware) script and prettify (Is that a word?) it's output to look more like the Gentoo boot output. Also, any error lines from the vmware init script are sent to the system logger to hopefully increase their chance of being noticed. I made an icon from the logo off of vmware.com for use in "start" type menus. It can be found in /opt/vmware/lib/icon/ . If kde is in the USE var then menu items are automatically added for the user. # tar tzf vmware-workstation-22.214.171.1240.tar.gz vmware-workstation/vmware-workstation-126.96.36.1990.ebuild vmware-workstation/ChangeLog vmware-workstation/files/digest-vmware-workstation-188.8.131.520 vmware-workstation/files/184.108.40.2060/90vmware vmware-workstation/files/220.127.116.110/VMwareWorkstation.desktop vmware-workstation/files/18.104.22.1680/vmware vmware-workstation/files/22.214.171.1240/vmware.png drobbins: This version of VMware doesn't need the patched 2.4.19 kernel.

Oh yea, once added to portage this also closes Bug #1649

Hi; I'd like to add you as a developer so you can maintain this (and maybe some other?) ebuilds for us. Interested?
Comment 4 Sandy McArthur 2002-04-13 01:23:17 UTC
I dunno, I have enough responsibilities that I don't feel I could maintain a consistent enough level of responsibility. If you want to make me a "junior developer" or something that doesn't place full responsibility on my shoulders then I'm cool with that. Otherwise I'm happy to let my work be added by proxy. That said my current want to do for gentoo list includes: 1) Backgrounding downloads so that the downloads for the next package to be compiled can be downloaded as the current one is compiling. I think slow link users would love this one. 2) Explore how icc could be easily intergrated with the ebuild system. Worst case a semi-ugly `use icc` hack.
Comment 5 Sandy McArthur 2002-04-13 02:21:25 UTC
hold off on adding this. I need to add tcl to the DEPEND. Also I want to make one cosmetic change that didn't warrant a new package release.
Comment 6 Sandy McArthur 2002-04-13 17:41:28 UTC
Created attachment 555 [details] Final ebuild package for VMware 188.8.131.52 This version of vmware works with tcl-8.3.3 so it fixes the vmware-wizzard problem some people have had. The ebuild has been corrected to depend on tcl-8.3.3 and the /etc/init.d/vmware script has been rewritten to handle error output from /etc/vmware/init.d/vmware much much better. (The previous attachement 532 should no longer be used.)
