Description Thibaud CANALE 2014-06-10 12:58:29 UTC

Please add multilib support. Thanks.

May be related to bug 512882, dev-libs/liborcus-0.5.1 fails to build because it can find dev-libs/boost version.

If someone happens to have a good patch for it, that would be much appreciated :).

Multilib patch for boost-1.55.0-r1.ebuild
Comment 4 Sergey Popov gentoo-dev 2014-08-07 11:28:33 UTC
@multilib: please, review attached patch and ebuild
Comment 5 Thibaud CANALE 2014-08-08 14:03:15 UTC
Oh great, very good job!

I add your ebuild into my overlay, the version 1.55.0-r2 (I just remove your header and use a blank one), emerge, and now, packages who were failing during compilations are now emerging. Thanks a lot.

The 2 programs who weren't compiling are app-text/libetonyek-0.0.3 and dev-libs/liborcus-0.5.1 (see bug 512882). Now I am waiting app-office/libreoffice- to end.

Thanks again.
