Description James Kyle 2004-01-28 20:57:05 UTC
The name of the package downloaded from transgaming is point2play-<version>.tgz, the name looked for by ebuild is point2play-small-<version>.tgz. I must either modify ebuild or rename package than do a ebuild package.ebuild digest to emerge. Really minor but had same problem with the last version.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Download point2play, mv to /usr/portage/distfiles/
2. emerge point2play
3. Receive error of not finding the foo-small-<version> 
4. after name change/ebuild edit digest doesn't match.

Comment 2 James Kyle 2004-01-29 07:32:12 UTC
My bad, sorry about that.
Comment 3 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2004-01-29 15:22:12 UTC
np ... the small version has just the package while the other one has all the libraries (like python and crap)
Comment 4 James Kyle 2004-01-30 05:53:40 UTC
Ohhhhh, that's probably what screwed up my python install, I had to reinstall python and all the things taht depended on it.
