Description Torsten Kurbad 2013-01-14 15:09:01 UTC
On route to unmasking the new major Samba release, =net-fs/samba-4.0.0, several minor issues need to be addressed.

One of them being packages depending on net-fs/samba[smbclient]. This use flag has been dropped for >=net-fs/samba-4.0.0, since the libsmbclient stuff is always installed here along with the client tools.
Unfortunately, Samba 4 also installs the header files in a new location, /usr/include/samba-4.0.

See the attached patch for a quick (and dirty) solution on how to fix the =media-video/vlc-2.0.5 ebuild for compatibility with Samba 4.

If questions about Samba 4 on Gentoo arise, please refer to bug #195703.


Reproducible: Always

Now, vlc-2.0.6.ebuild is in portage with exactly the same problem.

Can this please be fixed? It's a major blocker for people who want to deploy the now mature Samba 4!

What is holding the progress here?

Now that samba 4 matures, I'd really like to see that one fixed.
