Updated ebuild for Cadsoft Eagle 6.4.0

This ebuild was copied from sci-electronics/eagle-6.2.0 with a minor change to get the desktop icon to show up.  Works for me on amd64.

Looks like no maintainer has enough time for this, would you be willing to proxy maintain this package?
Comment 4 Alan Hourihane 2013-07-22 13:59:14 UTC
Any chance soon ?

No idea.

This package has no maintainer so this bug may go unnoticed for a long time.

ebuild for eagle-6.5.0, with abi dependencies

When diffing the ebuild here with the one from the tree, one difference was in the dependency list. At first sight, it looks like the idea of the code in the tree is to adapt the dependencies to the new multilib(?) system. But I'd, of course, prefer if someone else could confirm this.
Comment 7 Oldrich Jedlicka 2013-10-13 20:02:27 UTC
There is new version of Eagle available - 6.5.0.

ebuild for eagle-6.5.0, with abi dependencies

The same ebuild seems to be able to install 6.5.0 here. But, on the first run, it said 6.5.1 was available (I was not able to install it, it seems the binary is not at the expected location).
Comment 9 Kalin KOZHUHAROV 2013-10-21 13:51:18 UTC
Hmm, I am again reinventing the wheel...

Spent some time fiddling with compiling libpng14 with ABI_x86=32 to use eagle-6.2.0, then found out there is eagle-6.5.0 out so made ebuild. About to submit revbump request and found this bug.

In case someone needs it, eagle-6.5.0 is in my pkalin overlay

So far it seems to work fine (as freeware) on amd64.
Comment 10 Malte E. 2013-11-17 21:15:27 UTC
I can confirm, eagle-6.5.0 works just fine here, without libpng14 (I had that problem with 6.2, too). I used the 6.2.1_beta1 ebuild and simply renamed it. No problem. Please bump this and you can remove the (broken) 6.2.0 ebuild from the tree.
Comment 11 Oldrich Jedlicka 2013-11-18 08:04:47 UTC
I am using the 6.5.0 ebuild from pkalin overlay and it works for me on x86 (32bit). I have not tried much from the application yet, though. The application started with no problems and I was able to add components from the library and edit them.
Comment 12 Christian Ruppert (idl0r) gentoo-dev 2013-12-19 20:14:50 UTC
6.5.0 has just been added. Thanks guys!
