Description rabcor1 2014-06-01 05:15:36 UTC
I am required to patch libg15 to make my G510 keyboard work with these drivers. g15daemon also required a patch but that one already supported it.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge libg15 with any sort of patch in /etc/portage/patches/dev-libs/libg15/
2. despair as the package ebuild has no support for user patches
3. make sad faces
Actual Results:  
I cried a river, then found out how to modify the ebuild and apply it with an overlay in here:

Expected Results:  
Portage was suppoised to apply my patches :(

New ebuild:

Added lines:
inherit eutils

src_prepare() { 

This fixes my problem and I would greatly appreciate it if someone would update the package's ebuild for me, it will help make things easier when I share my patches with the community (i.e. won't have to make them make an overlay)

Given that this may be implemented in a future EAPI, we no longer track this.
