Description Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2017-10-19 15:32:44 UTC
Qt4 is dead and in the process of being removed from the tree. While the fbreader project itself seems to be dead, a user has come up with a patch that ports the necessary parts of the code to build with Qt5, see $URL for the Gentoo github PR.
