Description Ben de Groot (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-01-18 12:58:51 UTC
dev-util/bouml depends on x11-libs/qt:3, which is scheduled for removal.
This package should be removed if there is no Qt4 version.
Comment 1 Davide Pesavento gentoo-dev 2010-01-18 13:15:49 UTC
Unfortunately the author is not interested in a Qt4 port :(
Comment 2 Markos Chandras (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-01-18 16:38:12 UTC
This is so sad. It used to be my favorite UML editor :(

There is still hope for bouml? I can't find any good replacement for it.
Maybe kde-sunset overlay?

> Maybe kde-sunset overlay?

That would be the right place for it. As it's a user-maintained overlay, you can make that happen yourself.

I managed to compile and install what was the latest ebuild for bouml before it was removed from the tree.

You can see its tree here:

I've added the kde-sunset overlay with layman (layman -a kde-sunset). After that, I created a local overlay to hold the bouml tree.

Portage complained about missing digests so i just erased all the bouml tree but the latest ebuild, and then I generated its manifest.

After that I asked portage to emerge it. I needed not to unmask it because it was already unmasked, both bouml and qt3.

It was needed to copy the eclass/ dir from kde-sunset overlay to my local overlay because bouml ebuild inherits qt3 and uses eqmake3.

After that everything went really smooth.

I guess that if you put directly the ebuild inside kde-sunset overlay it will be easier.

I'm posting it here because as I said qt3 and bouml was already unmasked in my tree, so I couldn't fully test if everything was ok. If possible, I would ask to people to test that.

Also, I don't know yet how to commit this to the kde-sunset overlay, so until that happens people might wanna try out.

You can contact the kde-sunset maintainers on the gentoo-desktop mailing list. And you can ask for commit access.
