Description Matteo Azzali (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-04-15 07:56:46 UTC
this is an ebuild of beta software, but since there's no similar app anywhere,
I decided to post. It depends on glpng of which you can find an ebuild at
http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=113508 .
Modular X dependancy is not set, sorry, need to be refined.

makehuman-0.9 ebuild

I have created an updated ebuild based on the old one from Matteo Azzali. I've enabled it to be built on amd64 and x86. It works fine and would like some developer to act as proxy.
Comment 10 Fernando J. Pereda (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-03-20 18:35:33 UTC
Do you _really_ need src_unpack and src_compile there? Looks like it should work with the default functions.

mhgui-0.1 ebuild

I guess you are right, I need to read better the documentation on how to build ebuilds and the gentoo rules on building them.
There's one thing I'm not too sure about, and that is the location of animorph, maybe it would be better under media-libs?

I don't mean to nitpick, but:

 * You shouldn't redefine S. The default value should work for you. (Moreover, if you were to redefine it, you should quote WORKDIR properly.)
 * src_install should use emake instead of make if it works.
 * The Copyright notice should read 1999-2007 instead of 1999-2006.

Comment 19 Erlend Davidson 2008-02-10 12:12:53 UTC
Any chance of this being added to portage?  It is quite usable.
Comment 20 YLD 2008-04-28 14:26:12 UTC
Hi,

Please find attached makehuman-0.9.1.ebuild, animorph-0.3.ebuild and
mhgui-0.2.ebuild.

Makehuman is a graphical tool for drawing and posing 3D humanoids.
The current version is missing a few features as this is an RC1 alpha release.

Comparating to previous ebuilds makehuman-0.9.1.ebuild requires
media-gfx/aqsis renderer. They also have the "pic" USE flag.

Please note that in the future releases, makehuman might also be able to use
media-gfx/pixie as renderer.

This are my first ebuilds, so please be indulgent to the remaining bugs or
miswriting:

- I was not able to easily use eautoreconf to regenarte autotools files in makehuman nor in mhgui without breaking linking with Freeglut.
- the makehuman icon does not appear in the menus.
- I had to deal with makehuman version numerotation which does not matches the required standards. The true version is makehuman-0.9.1-rc1a, not
makehuman-0.9.1. Any help on that subject, among others, will be welcome.

Possible improvements:

- add PDF documentation found on the web site for Makehuman, otherwise there's
not any kind of manual.

Fully tested on ~amd64 (without problem)and partially on x86 because of a bug
in the xf86-video-i810 drivers which dramatically slows down OpenGL
accelaration (http://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=5901). But it
compiles, installs and loads perfectly well.

Comment 24 Bryan Duff 2008-04-29 14:45:10 UTC
"pic" use flag for ebuilds.

For me it doesn't even compile without that flag enabled - and I don't see how it could.  So you might as well just make it required.
Comment 25 Bryan Duff 2008-04-29 14:47:32 UTC
The "pic" use flag should probably be required (and therefore removed) because I couldn't compile without it, and I don't see how it would compile without it.

Otherwise, with that flag enabled (media-gfx/animorph pic, media-gfx/mhgui pic, media-gfx/makehuman pic) everything compiled fine, and it appears to work just fine.
Comment 26 Bryan Duff 2008-04-29 14:47:50 UTC
on amd64
Comment 27 YLD 2008-04-30 02:11:38 UTC
- removed pic USE flag and let econf and the configure script manage the option in the 3 ebuilds.
- corrected makehuman ebuild file name to makehuman-0.9.1_rc1_alpha.ebuild

Yes, pic is required on amd64. The documentation said the AMD64 profiles use a bashrc that filters out invalid flags in C[XX]FLAGS but it won't do anything there. And disabling pic for that kind of software would be useless.

The documentation on AMD64 and PIC:
http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/base/amd64/howtos/index.xml?part=1&chap=3#doc_chap2 

Some usefull explainations about Gentoo and the pic USE flag:
http://unixadmintalk.com/f22/done-kde-desktop-running-gcc-4-3-0-a-272575/index2.html

Thank you.

This is because the new version of g++ has changed its handling of libraries.
Animorph and makehuman needs patching to solve this issue.

I found a solution here : http://www.makehuman.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=207

I didn't have the time to try it yet. But if it's ok, I'll attached thoses patches.

Nope, I'm really busy at work for now ...
If you can do it, help yourself. I provided the link with all information.

Check the Maehuman site. The most recent version (wich still in alpha) is 1.0 alpha3b. As it seems to be only Python dependant, you can easily run it from your home directory (for testing purpose).

You can download it here: http://makehuman.googlecode.com/files/makehuman1-0-0_alpha3b_ubuntu904.zip

N.B.: version 0.9.1-rc1 wasn't usable (no save load funtions for example).

No save and load functions? Heh I was tryingto patch the game then in vain.
The build for Ubuntu didn't work (it looked for old Python and it's 32 bit, while I have 64) but I downloaded the source and the compilation was easy.

Comment 41 Taahir Ahmed 2014-03-01 08:48:21 UTC
I'm in the process of writing an ebuild for the latest released version of makehuman (1.0-alpha8-rc1).

The source zip file they distribute has no build system.  The debian version of the package that they publish just "cheats", and dumps all the contents of the source zip into /usr/share/makehuman, and adds a wrapper script in usr/bin that calls /usr/share/makehuman/makehuman.py.

This seems like a very un-gentoo solution, not least because I can't really see how to apply python-r1 support for multiple versions of python2.

On the other hand, it seems like it would be pretty easy to use python-single-r1 for this package.

Any thoughts/comments either way?

there is a life ebuild at flora overlay. you can see it for example here: http://data.gpo.zugaina.org/flora/media-gfx/makehuman/makehuman-1.0.6.9999.ebuild
maybe it could be useful for you.
Comment 43 vax456 2014-04-24 03:34:21 UTC
I have created some ebuilds for MakeHuman if anyone wants to take a look at them.

The makehuman-1.0.0-r1.ebuild should be ignored.  It was there to build the makehuman-1.0.0 ebuild.

makehuman-9999.ebuild retrieves the latest assets from the MakeHuman development FTP server in the src_install function, and installs.  This isn't an ideal way of doing, but this is where the meta-ebuild comes in.

In the files directory, you can call './makehuman-packager.sh 1.0.0' to create a tarball of the MakeHuman program, and the generated tarball can be stored on Gentoo's mirror.

So basically, the process is, 'emerge =media-gfx/makehuman-9999' to install the latest development version.  Then run 'makehuman-packager.sh X.X.X' to generate an ebuild, tarball, and Manifest.  The tarball can then be hosted on the developer's server.

What do you guys think?  Is this doable?  The 9999 ebuild shouldn't be put into the tree since it grabs from MakeHuman's server, and if hundreds of people use it, it'll bog down their server.
