Updated Insight 6.8-1 available
Insight 6.8 has been available for some time, and the current release tarball has issues with newer versions of X11. As a result, I am making available a patched Inisght 6.8-1 release which should fix all outstanding issues with X11.

This ebuild worked for me, at least to get it compiling (which the current version in portage (6.8) didn't do) and running.
I'm not sure if there is anything that needs to be fixed in it though. Hope it helps!
insight-6.8-DESTDIR.patch is missing
As is the other patch... but they seem to work with the 6.6 patches.
I am tried to run all version of Insight in Gentoo, but none of them don't even start successfully!

insight-6.8_p1.ebuild, which works with current patches
Here's the ebuild I use, which works with the patches in the "current" version's FILESDIR.

Thank you very much!! :) It's works!
Any chance the improved ebuild will reach portage anytime? It's a shame to have software that doesn't compile in portage.
What's the ETA to get insight 6.8.1 into portage? Another year or two? There's still a closed bug that was marked fixed over a year ago that's still present due to insight 6.8:
I've just gotten a portage overlay (AzP) and the fixed ebuild is in that overlay. Feel free to test it out.
Friendly reminder that we have software in stable that doesn't compile, and a patch here that works...
Hopefully fixed in main tree.
"Hopefully"? No changes has been made to the ebuild since 2008 (the version bump to 6.8, which is the version that doesn't compile), so to be fixed it must have been fixed in Xorg by reverting the API-changes.
Have you tried compiling it? I've been using this patch ever since, so I haven't seen the issue since I supplied this fix.
Peter, calm down - Tomáš isn't insight's maintainer - I asked him about this bug on his blog and he went out of his way and fixed it, making a good number of changes to the ebuild as well.
I just tried compling insight-6.8.1 and it builds fine, and starts.
Did you sync yet?
"Peter, calm down"
Sorry, I realize my post sounded a bit harsh, that's the problem with written language =) It really wasn't meant that way! I just wanted to point out that no changes had been made to the ebuild according to znurt. But I just checked packages.gentoo.org and it seems to be commited now, great!
Thanks for getting the fix in, it was a long time coming :)
