Description Justin Clift 2008-05-15 22:28:38 UTC
This version of ming (0.3.0) is regarded as very old and stable by the Ming developers (which I'm one of).  The software release itself done in Feb of 2006, and we're getting close to doing a new stable release in the next few months.

The ebuild has been running on my desktop system as a dependency of Salasaga for about a month now.  No issues this far.
Comment 1 Peter Alfredsen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-06-08 22:45:50 UTC
Just a thought, but maybe it should be unmasked first.
Comment 2 Peter Alfredsen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-06-08 23:05:16 UTC
AFAICT, libswf is not used by anything in the tree at the moment, while ming is.

Yep, unmasking sounds like a good idea too.

Comment 4 Peter Alfredsen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-07-27 18:19:45 UTC
Please mark media-libs/ming-0.3.0-r1 stable. This version provides much improved support in comparison to 0.2a-r3. Among other things, it actually works as a dependency for autotrace and most other programs that depend on ming.

Comment 12 Justin Clift 2008-09-04 10:20:22 UTC
In response to #7, the conflict for "/usr/lib/" is with itself.  So, for some reason, you already have ming installed. :)

For the /usr/bin/png2swf, yes, ming and swftools are known to not co-exist nicely.

Have just asked the main *ming* developers if they're ok with renaming their png2swf tool to something else, but I doubt they'll back port that to the old 0.3 series anyway.

Hope that helps.
Comment 13 Justin Clift 2008-09-07 07:14:32 UTC
It turns out Debian had the same problem, and got around it by adjusting the ming version of "png2swf" to be named "png2swf-ming" in their packages:

The main development line of ming is version 0.4.0, and the main ming developers are now discussing whether to drop the png2swf tool altogether.  It's functionality has been superceded by another included tool "makeswf".

Either way, that's forward looking and likely not directly relevant to this ebuild.  Want an updated ebuild that renames the tool?  (i.e. 0.3.0-r2)
