Description Maik 2019-08-15 10:51:44 UTC
games-rpg/eternal-lands currently has a fixed dependency on eselect-opengl, thus blocking unmasking libglvnd usage. Stub for now to work as blocker.
Comment 1 Maik 2019-08-15 16:00:42 UTC
No idea why it depends on eselect-opengl (any version), ebuild is not using it. Maybe just to ensure OpenGL headers are available?

Patch to remove eselect-opengl dependency

I've taken a deeper look at the ebuild but I can see absolutely no reason why this is depending on eselect-opengl. Furthermore, I built and tested this with libglvnd and it runs perfectly fine in any case, using either mesa or even render offload to nvidia.
Maybe tht dependency once had a reason but not anymore, so just drop it. Attaching a patch to do so.
