Description Julian Ospald 2013-09-08 15:37:20 UTC
I am a bit scared about this idea, but we have some consumers...
Comment 1 Julian Ospald 2013-09-08 15:44:42 UTC
should probably be done during version bump, if at all
Comment 2 Michał Górny archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2013-12-29 13:30:05 UTC
Out of curiosity, does DirectFB work at all nowadays? And does it work as 32-bit lib with 64-bit kernel? :)
Comment 3 Julian Ospald 2013-12-29 13:34:57 UTC
media-libs/libsdl and dev-libs/DirectFB are circular deps in this multilib conversion

It works, I have no idea about the second question.
Comment 5 Julian Ospald 2013-12-29 13:36:12 UTC
also mind that FusionSound is now part of DirectFB
Comment 6 Michael Mair-Keimberger (iamnr3) 2014-01-02 20:10:44 UTC
This one actually should also block bug 488672 in case we keep it (the patch for cairo ebuild actually includes directfb)
Comment 7 Nikoli 2014-04-05 13:24:59 UTC
May be drop libsvg* deps?
Comment 8 Julian Ospald 2014-04-05 16:02:50 UTC
+  05 Apr 2014; Julian Ospald <> libsdl2-2.0.1-r1.ebuild,
+  libsdl2-2.0.2.ebuild:
+  remove directfb video support

so this is of no interest anymore... and will save us a lot of pain with circular deps
