Description Bernd 2020-03-03 22:20:53 UTC
Last year, the openexr repository has moved to the AcademySoftwareFoundation user on github. Shortly after, they updated the OpenEXR libraries to 2.4.0 and about a month ago, 2.4.1 came out.

With the 2.4.0 release, they moved away from their autotools based build to a cmake based build. It also looks like they want to drop autotools build eventually, see, although it's still supported as of 2.4.1.

I've written ebuilds for each of the four corresponding packages, media-libs/ilmbase, media-libs/openexr, dev-python/pyilmbase and media-gfx/openexr_viewers and all but pyilmbase are building, at least on amd64 arch.
As for the pyilmbase issue, I think, it's an upstream bug and I have filed a bug on their issue tracker, awaiting response. See for this.

With the cmake based ebuild, it's no longer possible to build ilmbase and openexr separately, but it's possible to configure, whether the python bindings and the viewers are going to be built. The python bindings will have py3 support. They also come with py2 support, but I didn't consider adding support for it.

I was thinking, we could maybe just use one cmake based ebuild for the now four packages. Apart from a more modern build system, we would have to maintain just one package in the future. But it comes to the cost of solving quite some revdeps listed at

I've also prepared a cmake ebuild for only one package, and going to open a PR for it. I've tested it on a pure 64bit chroot and all kinds of USE flag combinations and it seems to build. But it also has some place for optimizations, where I'm currently stuck and would appreciate some hints.

For a reference on all five ebuilds, please take a look at the PR on my overlay at

Reproducible: Always
Comment 1 Bernd 2020-05-07 16:13:45 UTC
@Michał FYI version 2.4.1 is py3 compatible, althoug the current version is not.
Comment 2 Bernd 2020-05-09 08:19:34 UTC
2.5.0 has come out 2 days ago. I will update the bug and PR to 2.5.0 after the 7 days waiting period.
Comment 3 Bernd 2020-05-24 16:01:38 UTC
2.5.1 has been released ~2 weeks ago. I updated the bug report and the PR as well to reflect this.
