Description J R 2004-11-12 00:29:42 UTC
Hi- installing nx-x11 (1.4-rc2) silently fails (i.e. doesn't bomb out) when trying to copy the various libs to the /var/tmp/portage/nx-x11/image directory.  Running the ebuild manually I noticed link failures.  It was easy to fix- I simply changed the ebuild to point to the 'real' libraries and not the linked filenames- details below.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. ebuild the ebuild, watch the output of the install stage.

Actual Results:  
Appears to be installed, but no package exports libXcompext, etc.

Expected Results:  
Installed the libraries.

Here is my working src_install() function:
src_install() {
	into /usr/NX

	dobin programs/Xserver/nxagent
	dobin programs/nxauth/nxauth
	dobin ../nxviewer/nxviewer/nxviewer
	dobin ../nxviewer/nxpasswd/nxpasswd
	dobin ../nxdesktop/nxdesktop

	dolib ../nxcomp/
	dolib ../nxcompext/
	dolib lib/X11/
	dolib lib/Xext/
	dolib lib/Xrender/

	preplib /usr/NX

	insinto /usr/X11R6/include
	doins ../nxcomp/NX.h

	dodir /var/lib/nxserver


	# nxesd support will have to wait for a later release

	cd ../nxesd
	emake DESTDIR=${D} install || die "unable to install nxesd"
