cc'ing ppc64 team.
Comment 2 Markus Rothe (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-11-03 12:34:53 UTC
I have not found ebuilds for this in portage.

Are there only .rpms available? Should the .rpms be added to portage?


Comment 3 Omkhar Arasaratnam 2004-11-04 13:30:25 UTC
I do not believe they are available in another format.
Comment 4 Markus Rothe (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-11-05 04:37:10 UTC
should the rpm be added to portage?

Comment 5 Markus Rothe (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-02-17 10:09:41 UTC
rpm packages won't work and I didn't get an answer from IBM back, where I asked
them for the sources. (fedora has them on their mirrors!)
Comment 6 Markus Rothe (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-04-08 14:42:09 UTC

Seems the tar.gz haven't made it to the distfiles mirrors yet? When can I get the tar.gz?
Comment 8 Markus Rothe (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-04-11 07:12:33 UTC
sorry.. I already uploaded it two days ago, but with wrong rights set. so it never hit the script which puts those files into distfiles/.

Should be in there in a few hours.
