Comment 2 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2020-09-01 12:16:17 UTC
the port is ongoing upstream in 1.9.4alpha versions... but, personally, I would choose to still wait as, otherwise, we will push people to use that alpha versions that are still a bit buggy (that is the reason I didn't bump it yet)

The current alpha43 ebuild prompts users to download, which doesn't exist, while using the 1.9.3 URL in the SRC_URI.

I'll find out soon whether the 1.9.3 patches are compatible with 1.9.4a43.
Comment 5 Hypoon 2020-09-12 15:33:11 UTC
The prompt also asks you to name it incorrectly. It asks for vmd-1.9.4_alpha43.src.tar, when apparently it should be vmd-1.9.4a43.src.tar.

Unfortunately, it still doesn't build. The compilation error isn't obvious to me. I'll attach logs soon.

That is a new bug and should be reported in a new one then. Also, I am unsure about how are you uploading the file as it looks to contain all the color chars making it a bit hard to read :/

But from the lines I have seen, I think it could be a parallel make issue
Comment 11 Hypoon 2020-09-12 22:44:38 UTC
I followed the instructions (which are also listed at the end of build.log):

If you need support, post the output of `emerge --info '=sci-chemistry/vmd-1.9.4_alpha43::gentoo'`,
the complete build log and the output of `emerge -pqv '=sci-chemistry/vmd-1.9.4_alpha43::gentoo'`.
The complete build log is located at '/var/tmp/portage/sci-chemistry/vmd-1.9.4_alpha43/temp/build.log'.
The ebuild environment file is located at '/var/tmp/portage/sci-chemistry/vmd-1.9.4_alpha43/temp/environment'.
Working directory: '/var/tmp/portage/sci-chemistry/vmd-1.9.4_alpha43/work/plugins'
S: '/var/tmp/portage/sci-chemistry/vmd-1.9.4_alpha43/work/vmd-1.9.4a43'

The instructions don't say to strip out the escape codes, so I uploaded it as-is!

I'll create a new bug if there isn't one already.
