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: http://boinc.berkeley.edu/download_all.php
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?
Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge --sync
2. emerge -av =sci-misc/boinc-6.10.56*
sci-misc/boinc-6.10.56 does not exist
sci-misc/boinc-6.10.56 should be emerged
Current workaround: did a snapshot of the svn tag http://boinc.berkeley.edu/svn/tags/boinc_core_release_6_10_56/ and copied the ebuild from 6.10.58
Created attachment 244227 [details]
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 generate_tarball.sh script and is located at http://cu.ulrichnet.ch/gentoo/boinc-6.10.56.tar.bz2
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 ;-)
6.10.58 is recommended version
true, so this can be closed.
