Description grischa 2007-12-03 18:44:52 UTC

The actual version of the ventrilo server is 3.0.2. Since it contains security related fixes the current ebuild version 2.3.1 should be updated.

Reproducible: Always
Comment 1 JD Gray 2007-12-07 12:27:17 UTC
It's worth noting that ventrilo server version 3.x is not backwards compatible with client version 2.x, nor is client version 3.x compatible with server version 2.x.

emerge 3.0.2 from overlay (failed) log

Can anybody help here? I followed the guide from the wiki ( ) , but the package is not installed correctly due to the "cannot stat" error.
Comment 3 Kyle Evans 2007-12-14 23:40:14 UTC
...So I cheated. I canceled the emerge mid-build and 

cp /var/tmp/portage/media-sound/ventrilo-server-bin-3.0.2/work/ventsrv/vent* /opt/vent*/

Created a new ebuild that should fix this bug and bug 135996.

The daemon now runs as the user ventrilo instead of root

All config files are stored in /etc/ventrilo

Moved binaries to /usr/sbin

added ventstatus option to init.d

Changed ${NICE} to ${VENT_NICENESS} in conf.d

Has this ebuild been placed into an overlay, and if so, which one?  Also, why is it taking so long to land this in the Portage tree?  It hasn't had any action in 6 months and works fine.
Comment 10 Bjarke Istrup Pedersen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-03-02 00:25:49 UTC
Bumped to 3.0.3, logs and pid file is placed in /opt/ventrilo-server-bin, since they do not belong in /etc, and it is not possible to change the location to somewhere else than the directory from which the configs are placed.
