Description Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2018-01-12 19:34:01 UTC
Qt4 is dead and going away, SoQt master apparently switched to CMake and already builds with Qt5 instead by default.
Comment 1 Maciej Mrozowski gentoo-dev 2018-05-06 09:20:15 UTC
In theory, yes, unfortunately upstream is messing with extracting common buildsystem and project stuff now to separate projects (akin to git submodules), this requires some custom src_unpack to fetch symlink those deps.. and doesn't work anyway because some files are missing according to CMake or misplaced. I might need to take some trial & error approach to find commit that works.
Comment 2 Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2018-05-13 22:41:19 UTC
Thanks for your update; together with emfengine and quarter this is quickly becoming one of the very last blockers of qt4-removal.

Tuesday mask day.

Comment 5 bug2017 2018-06-28 12:31:32 UTC
The attached ebuild depends on coin-9999 which is not in tree. I suggest a small change to fix that:

+ >=media-libs/coin-4.0
- >=media-libs/coin-9999

It would be nice if the SoQt mask could mask only qt4 dpendend versions
Comment 6 Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2018-06-28 18:44:47 UTC
The mask can be adjusted as soon as a relevant ebuild would be in tree.

Closing this bug solved the qt4 removal.
But pivy (bug 659478) requires the newer SoQt ebuild attached to this bug.

Should I open a new bug?
