Description SpanKY gentoo-dev 2002-06-26 21:13:49 UTC
eggdrop is an irc bot
if you dont know what a {bot,irc} is then its not for you ;)

net-irc/eggdrop/ directory

its a tar.bz2 file ... just put it into /usr/portage/ and `tar -jxvf file`
Comment 2 Spider (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-06-27 02:11:43 UTC
really, installing an eggdrop system-wide is a "non-good" idea.

I consider this "not good" 
Comment 3 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2002-06-27 16:15:12 UTC
did you even look at the ebuild before you made that comment spider ?
Comment 4 Spider (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-06-27 18:13:30 UTC
Actually not, and thats why my comment still stands, to use eggdrop on a system
wide install usually breaks things for users as eggdrop team has a tendency to
always "forget" to be backwards compatible with their config files, and thus if
a user has it running(as user ofc, wouldn't think less here) it will genereally
break for them as sysadmins update to "latest & greatest" . 

Comment 5 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2002-06-27 18:20:45 UTC
well, i took everything you mentioned into consideration when making this 
(1) its not a system wide install
(2) the ebuild displays information about renaming your config files so they 
dont get overwritten
(3) i havent had a problem with upgrading my eggies in the past and using the 
same .conf file ... true they add new things and punt others, but its always 
been good to me
(4) wtf is an 'ofc' ;)
Comment 6 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2002-06-30 00:49:50 UTC
hmm, seems i put in a small bug ... doesnt prevent the eggdrop from emerging 
correctly however

in the SRC_URI var i have this line:${MY_P}.tar.gz
it *should* be:${VERDIR}/${MY_P}.tar.gz

i didnt notice this cause i had already fetched the 1.6.x sources ;)

okay, adding arbitary users in a ebuild is a disaster waiting to happen.  

forcing a user to export a flag before all emerge's is not good either, that
will also break emerge -u 

installing system packages in /home breaks things on distributed servers (NFS
export /home and watch what happens on the solaris box in the corner with the
Gentoo build files)  and is generally unclean, should a user want it they should
be capable of installing it themselves.

also, this is not something that belongs in portage tree as it opens up too many
