Description Carlos Vendramini 2005-08-24 17:19:45 UTC
Paco is a source code package organizer for Unix/Linux systems, originally 
written to aid package management when installing an LFS system. 

When installing a package from sources, paco wraps the "make install" command 
(or whatever is needed to install the files into the system), and generates a 
log containing the list of all installed files.
Technically, this is done by preloading a shared library before installation 
using the environment variable LD_PRELOAD. During installation this library 
catches the system calls that cause filesystem alterations, logging the created 
At the moment this method is known to work only in Linux, and Solaris. 

Like any other package manager, paco also provides several options to print 
package information in different formats. It can remove packages too, among some 
other basic operations. See the man page for more details. 

Gpaco is the GTK+ graphic interface of paco. It's included in the same tarball 
and installed by default, althought it can be disabled at configure time. Gpaco 
requires GTK+ (2.6 or later), and pkg-config.
See some screenshots here. 

Paco is protected by the GNU General Public License. Look at the COPYING file in 
the tarball for more details.

This ebuild works with the newest version of paco (1.10.2) if you comment out the entire src_unpack section. Unaltered, the ebuild fails with this message:

(In reply to comment #2)
Your solution (removing src_unpack) is not correct. It will fail if sandbox is enabled. This ebuild fixes the problem (forces use of older automake).
Comment 4 Martin Ereth 2007-01-28 22:19:07 UTC
What about this programs ebuild? Will it be included in the portage-tree soon?
Comment 5 Alexander Appel 2007-06-07 10:32:57 UTC
paco 2.0 is out

(this is an automated message based on filtering criteria that matched this bug)
'EBUILD' is in the KEYWORDS which should mean that there is a ebuild attached 
to this bug.
This bug is assigned to maintainer-wanted which means that it is not in the 
main tree.

Hello, The Gentoo Team would like to firstly thank you for your ebuild 
submission. We also apologize for not being able to accommodate you in a timely
manner. There are simply too many new packages.

Allow me to use this opportunity to introduce you to Gentoo Sunrise. The 
sunrise overlay[1] is a overlay for Gentoo which we allow trusted users to 
commit to and all users can have ebuilds reviewed by Gentoo devs for entry 
into the overlay. So, the sunrise team is suggesting that you look into this 
and submit your ebuild to the overlay where even *you* can commit to. =)

Because this is a mass message, we are also asking you to be patient with us. 
We anticipate a large number of requests in a short time. 

On behalf of the Gentoo Sunrise Team,
