Description Caleb Tennis (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-03-26 08:44:31 UTC
Some developers may be doing their work using Qt Commercial.  Adding support to Qt 
ebuild scripts to handle the downloading of the qt commercial packages in place of the 
qt-free packages is desired.  A rough proposed patch to the existing qt ebuild will be 
attached for comment. 

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:

A Qt commercial install is almost exactly the same as a Qt free install.  Major 
1) The gz/bz2 file is downloaded from a private ftp site, requiring a 
2) A valid Qt commercial license file must exist in the installer's home directory. 
I attempt to solve problem 1 by checking for the QT_COMMERCIAL environment 
variable before executing the ebuild.  If it is set, then the ebuild attempts to download 
the commercial package instead of the free package. 
#2 *should* already be installed prior to running the ebuild.  Hannes Mehnert said 
some problems may arise with the sandbox and checking of this license file (the license 
file check is done by Qt's configure script).  
Comments are welcome.
