Description pavel sanda 2007-03-17 20:09:03 UTC
would it be possible to make use flag for the app-misc/screen ebuild, which
would make vertical splitting of windows possible ?
The patch can be found here :

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Comment 1 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-03-17 21:14:36 UTC
Feature requests belong upstream, not to Gentoo.
Comment 2 Sven Wegener gentoo-dev 2007-04-08 21:29:11 UTC
Upstream already has proper vertical split support in their CVS.
Comment 3 Sven Wegener gentoo-dev 2007-08-07 20:00:37 UTC
I commited a CVS snapshot ebuild. It's dated 20070403, but there are no changes since that time. It contains vertical split support among other goodies.

Comment 10 pavel sanda 2009-12-28 19:41:24 UTC
this patch doesnt work here.

why can't we have working 20070403 ebuild in tree which have been the case no so long ago?
Comment 11 Kaleb Elwert (belak) 2010-02-01 23:53:59 UTC
Well, I've got this in my overlay (belak) but the use flag is called vs, not vsplit.
Comment 12 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2012-12-15 13:25:22 UTC
Is this still needed now with latest screen in the tree?
Comment 13 pavel sanda 2012-12-15 13:59:03 UTC
Latest? :)
screen upstream didn't release anything last 4 years and there seems to be no indication of change. Other distros are running their own patchsets to overcome this.
Comment 14 pavel sanda 2014-06-09 06:28:10 UTC
should be fixed with 4.2.1 in the tree. for some reason not keyworded yet.
Comment 15 Jeroen Roovers gentoo-dev 2014-10-30 01:18:07 UTC
Fixed upstream since >4.2.
