Description Jason Rhinelander 2003-05-19 17:00:06 UTC
The 2.9.12 ati-drivers ebuild fails to install, giving:

>>> Unpacking source...
tar (child): fglrx-glc22-4.3.0-2.9.12.i586.tar.gz: Cannot open: No such file or
tar (child): Error is not recoverable: exiting now
tar: Child returned status 2
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

The fix to this is pretty simple - just change line 25 to:

tar zxf ${DISTDIR}/fglrx-glc22-4.3.0-${PV}.i586.tar.gz || die

(The change is adding the '${DISTDIR}/' part).
