Description chrulri 2010-08-17 20:44:36 UTC

I'd like to ask about this ebuild and why it isn't anymore in portage.

Instead of 6.10.56 only 6.10.58 is in portage, which is currently known as unstable (use only for testing). See:

I have big trouble to get 6.10.58 working but none with 6.10.56 which is the recommended version by BOINC.

Why is ebuild for 6.10.56 deleted?

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge --sync
2. emerge -av =sci-misc/boinc-6.10.56*
Actual Results:  
sci-misc/boinc-6.10.56 does not exist

Expected Results:  
sci-misc/boinc-6.10.56 should be emerged

Current workaround: did a snapshot of the svn tag and copied the ebuild from 6.10.58

Created attachment 244227 [details]
ebuild overlay

if previously boinc-10.6.58(-r1) was installed do following:

- download attachment
# mkdir -pv /usr/portage/local
# tar xjf boinc-10.6.56-ebuild.tar.bz2 -C /usr/portage/local
# emerge -av =sci-misc/boinc-10.6.56
# /etc/init.d/boinc start
# boinccmd --passwd `cat /var/lib/boinc/gui_rpc_auth.cfg` --get_state


the dist file is created with the script and is located at
it would be great if this could be moved to the gentoo servers

P.S.: typo... it should be 6.10.56 not 10.6.56 ;-)
Comment 3 Kacper Kowalik (Xarthisius) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-11-13 20:18:42 UTC
6.10.58 is recommended version
Comment 4 chrulri 2010-11-14 11:42:01 UTC
true, so this can be closed.
