Description Ulrich Müller gentoo-dev 2010-09-18 17:52:43 UTC
I wonder if the libraries that aren't free software (namely libXm, libMrm, libUil) should be split off to a separate package like emul-linux-x86-motif?

Not all users may like to install a non-free package, and only few of the reverse dependencies require Motif.

Will try to look at this for the next emul set, I didn't know some users didn't like their licenses :-/

> I didn't know some users didn't like their licenses :-/

If users have ACCEPT_LICENSE="-* @FREE" in their make.conf then they can't install the package without adding it to their package.license file.

I've done a quick scan over the reverse dependencies of emul-linux-x86-xlibs, and I could only find net-misc/icaclient as a package that requires the Motif libraries. Not sure if there are any others.

Package openmotif-compat has been last-rited.
All OpenMotif libs are in x11-libs/openmotif now:
- SLOT 2.2 for soname 3
- SLOT 0   for soname 4
