Description David Brown 2010-08-06 20:26:05 UTC
Ada core has released a new version of this package.  If no one is interested in packaging, I might try looking into packaging the new version.
Comment 1 Jean-Claude Repetto 2010-12-27 10:49:02 UTC
I am interested by this version. Is there an ebuild available ?
Comment 2 Ted Baker 2011-01-10 19:07:25 UTC
Please let me know how this is going.  I use Gnat quite a bit, but have not been able to get either of the Gentoo packages (gnat-gpl or gnat-gcc) to re-emerge on my x86-64 system for several months now.
Comment 3 George Shapovalov (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2011-01-21 10:38:36 UTC
I am working on update. However there are issues with 4.4 changes and a kind of stopper related to the change in how zlib seems to be treated in recent versions. You can take a look at bug #276568 for more detail. Anyway, I recently did a quick basic bump to gnat-gcc-4.3.5 which goes around this by simply deleting in-tree zlib. I don't see any ill effects myself, however I would prefer some extra testing. Could somebody please let me know if receently added 4.3.5 builds and whether you had any issues using the produced compiler?
Comment 4 Maxim Reznik 2011-04-26 15:32:01 UTC
I made gnat-gpl-2010 ebuild in my ada_ru portage overlay

There are x86_64 and i686 versions for now.

Note, gnatboot-4.3-amd64.tar.bz2 differs from gentoo mirrors and should be downloaded from

Please take a look
