Ebuild for pingus-bin
Comment 2 Mr. Bones. (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-01-04 08:31:35 UTC
No thanks.  Since the source is available, it should be used to build, even on amd64.  Any challenges in that regard can be addressed by the amd64 team.
Comment 3 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2006-01-04 10:33:24 UTC
Have you compiled succesfully pingus 0.6 on amd64?

Thanks for the information

The point is that pingus is open source.  Rather than have a binary distribution, we require that the source is patched instead.  We will not add a binary package for a game where the source is available.
Comment 6 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2006-01-04 11:10:03 UTC
But the source doesn't generate code that run on amd64. I asked it at and:

I cannot run pingusd if it has been compiled with gcc 3.4. I think that it's a

I am using gentoo 2005.0, but there are many ubuntu users with the same

DO NOT COMPILE Pingus 0.6.0 with gcc 3.4 on a 64-bit machine.  It
apparently doesn't work.

Follow the instructions about downloading the binary here:

Then patch it... I don't care what the upstream developers say... it *can* be patched to work.  We will not add the binary version.  You're more than welcome to use it yourself, but don't expect us to support it.
