Description Loyd Goodbar 2004-01-06 15:44:47 UTC
Attached is an updated ebuild for IBM iSeries Access for Linux. Like the tn5250 package, it allows you to connect to iSeries (or AS/400) systems. Also includes an ODBC driver to connect to iSeries.

This ebuild is for version 5.2.0-1.3 of iSeries Access for Linux, released 17-Dec-2003. This is a version-update ebuild for the 5.2.0-1.1 ebuild in bug 37357.

This is not free (speech) software and is distributed as binary only. Since it is not covered under an OSS license, I left the license blank.

Contact me for the RPM file that can be installed with this ebuild (approx 2.5MB).

I emerged iseriesaccess- sucessfully but it's failing with a dependancy on I used the iSeriesAccess-5.2.0-1.3.i386.rpm from IBM's website. Looked for a version of openmotif for gentoo that would satisfy this dependancy but I couldn't find one. Just to warn ya I'm a total noob to gentoo and bugzilla.
Comment 5 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2004-09-21 17:09:36 UTC

Comment 8 Barry Trout 2005-05-05 09:09:46 UTC

hrm.. was searching for 'iseries' and found this rather old bug. reassigning to ppc64@g.o to get more attention.
Comment 12 Tom Gall (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-11-14 19:39:52 UTC
well really just the x86 and ppc teams can act on this. As this seems to contain binary blobs for which there are no ppc64 version, there's not much to be done really.

Comment 13 Markus Rothe (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-04-28 17:27:03 UTC
as per comment #12:

x86, ppc: if you want to add this package, then add it, else close this bug please.
Comment 14 Raúl Porcel (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-04-29 13:34:52 UTC
wth? This bug is maintainer-wanted, nothing that arches can do wrt that.
Comment 15 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-09-14 15:25:31 UTC
# You must register with IBM to download this software; it is not available
# through public servers.

Not even going to ponder, sorry. WONTFIX.
