Description Hans Nieser 2011-06-15 14:05:17 UTC
Created attachment 277127 [details]

Hi there,

Attached is an ebuild for 'protobuf-c' which in the words of their website ( is "[a] package [providing] a code generator and runtime libraries to use Protocol Buffers [] from pure C (not C++)". This is a dependency needed by another package (umurmur) that I've submitted an ebuild for at bug 371773

This ebuild was taken from user/benf at (;a=tree;f=dev-libs/protobuf-c) and has two modifications:

1) Added dep for dev-libs/protobuf
2) Forced make to be called with -j1 due to a parallel make issue that causes occasional compile failures involving generated code

I wanted to thank marienz and ABCD on freenode for helping me with the diag. and workaround for 2) and for answering lots of other questions while I'm learning how to write proper ebuilds :)

This is actually a dependency of osm2pgsql to be able to read pbf files.

This has been in the tree for a while now.
