Description Tim Ellis 2005-01-31 06:38:56 UTC
When I emerge xorg it breaks on my G5. I made sure the box was fully updated before emerging. This is the only "stable" ebuild for ppc64 and it doesn't work! Doh!

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Type emerge xorg-x11
2. Wait ages...
3. It breaks!

Actual Results:

Can you try 6.8.0-r4 or greater please? They've got a fix that doesn't exist in -r3.
Comment 3 Tim Ellis 2005-01-31 08:35:27 UTC
I have, it works... this build needs marking ~ppc64 though at least :)
Comment 4 Markus Rothe (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-01-31 11:26:30 UTC
damn.. this should have been fixed in bug #66223.

I'll check what I can do.
Comment 5 Markus Rothe (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-02-14 05:15:07 UTC
here is my plan: leave 6.7.0-r3 as it is and mark 6.8.2 stable as soon as it is
tested enough.

Comment 6 Markus Rothe (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-02-19 07:54:57 UTC
xorg-x11-6.8.2 is now stable on ppc64! this should work like a charm!
