Description Robbert 2013-12-08 20:05:27 UTC
When loading tinyscheme for the first time after emerging I get the message "Could not open file init.scm"

robbert /  $ tinyscheme 
Could not open file init.scm
TinyScheme 1.39

This does not happen when I am in the directory /usr/share/tinyscheme (where the init.scm is).

robbert /usr/share/tinyscheme  $ tinyscheme 
TinyScheme 1.39

I believe the tinyscheme excecutable wants to have the init.scm in the same directory, which is not the case at the moment.

It is also strange that I installed tinyscheme 1.40 but on runtime it states 1.39.

True, I'll try make an ebuild for 1.41.
Comment 2 Panagiotis Christopoulos (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2013-12-09 15:44:30 UTC
Well, I just saw the logic inside the 1.40 ebuild and if you execute an "env-update && source /etc/profile && source ~/.bashrc" after emerging the package, you will get a TINYSCHEMEINIT=/usr/share/tinyscheme/init.scm in your environment and won't have the issue with "Could not open file init.scm". I'll leave this open for the moment.

*tinyscheme-1.41 (11 Dec 2013)

  11 Dec 2013; Panagiotis Christopoulos <>
  +tinyscheme-1.41.ebuild, +files/tinyscheme-1.41-makefile.patch:
  Bump to 1.41 contains various fixes for bug #334649, bug #455294, bug
  #455296, bug #455298, bug #455300 and bug #493694, thanks to Agostino Sarubbo
  (ago at gentoo dot org) for reporting the QA issues. Special thanks to
  Michael Mair-Keimberger (iamnr3) who made the patches in bug #455296. Prefix
  (darwin) keywords dropped cause logic inside the ebuild has changed and the
  ebuild needs rekeywording.

I bumped tinyscheme to 1.41. I'm closing this now, remember to start a new shell or source /etc/profile after emerging tinyscheme, and the init file will be loaded. If you still have issues please reopen. Thank you for your report.
