Description Martin Walch 2010-01-31 22:30:05 UTC
This update has been released in 2008, together with the j3d-core update described in bug #287267. Unfortunately, I could not find a ChangeLog. However, please notice the license changes.
Comment 1 Peter Gantner (a.k.a. nephros) 2013-09-04 11:39:34 UTC

The distfiles in the current ebuild does not even exist anymore:

The cvs tricks mentioned in the ebuild comments also do not work:

# cvs -d login
# cvs -d export -r rel-1_5_1-fcs vecmath

What however does work is getting that source tree from here:

svn co vecmath

and building that distfile from there.

My take on an updated ebuild which pulls from upstream SVN.

Removed the USE=test functionality, because I couldn't get it to build. AFAICS it doesn't work in the current 1.5.1 ebuild either.

Needed for #287267

Alister Bush retired a while ago and his dev space has been taken down since. I will mend the said ebuilds.
