Description amcnabb 2005-01-22 00:14:39 UTC
The attached ebuild is for a very simple entertaining program called MindGuard, written by Lyle Zapato (the Aluminum Foil Deflector Beanie guy).  It's been tested and everything should work.  This should probably end up being games-misc/mindguard-  Zapato's license file (mgpl), which is also attached, will need to be added to the tree (it's the most entertaining license I've seen).  The attached patch makes everything install properly into the normal Gentoo hierarchy (/usr/games/bin, /usr/share/games/MindGuard, and /usr/share/doc/MindGuard-

Please let me know if there are any problems.

I've tested the ebuild, and it works great. I feel safer already :)
This is actually pretty entertaining, very creative program. The source code is as funny as the license.
Comment 7 Drew A. Withers 2005-01-22 15:02:02 UTC
Works great for me too
Comment 8 Erin S. 2005-01-26 21:48:29 UTC
Looks like it's working great!  Nice work!
Comment 9 Chris Gianelloni (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-07-29 07:14:46 UTC
This looks pretty good...

Is there any way we could get the patch in unified diff format (-u) instead?
Comment 10 Chris Gianelloni (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-09-26 12:07:25 UTC
The patch also needs to take into account that is *cannot* hard-code paths.  The
paths in the patch are correct for a default Gentoo installation, but a user
could easily override GAMES_PREFIX and GAMES_DATADIR to suit their needs.  It
might be best to do the path changes with sed.

No further interest and package hasn't been updated since 2003.
