Description Konrad Karczewski 2012-03-15 11:41:01 UTC
C-kermit version 8.0.211 is available in the tree. The current version available from is 9.0.302 - it would be good to have the current version available.

The 9.0.302 build reasonably cleanly on current gentoo using 'linux' target (not 'linuxa' as in 8.0.211), but the ebuild needs to be tweaked to get it working correctly.

Reproducible: Always

It fails to install for me:

Comment 3 Konrad Karczewski 2012-03-17 12:07:46 UTC
Perhaps I should have put it differently: C-kermit 9.0.302 builds cleanly and works fine on current gentoo, but the ebuild needs tweaking.

One of the things is that the binary is called 'wermit' and 'BINARY' variable in the makefile is used only in the install target, not for the actual building. The issue with mkdir is another problem in the makefile. I suppose these could be patched and submitted to the upstream - the development appears to be active on this version.

I started looking into generating an ebuild, but so far didn't have time to finish it properly
