Description Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2023-10-14 20:52:52 UTC
Since package is configured with qmlui, this dependency should not be necessary. Plese check.

5.0.0_beta2 has a few reports open about being crashy, also it is old. Maybe a snapshot would be worthwhile?
Comment 3 Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2024-01-16 10:42:42 UTC
5.0.0_beta3 available:

Comment 5 Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2024-01-16 11:53:42 UTC
Jannis, do you think this is good enough to add back ~amd64 keyword for broader testing?
Comment 6 jannis 2024-01-16 18:40:48 UTC
Hi Andreas, yes, I would say we can keyword beta-3 with ~amd64.
It might even make sense to slot this package since v5 is not ready for "production" shows and people might still want v4 while having v5 installed to evaluate?
Comment 7 Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2024-01-17 10:03:50 UTC
Did upstream enable it to be installed side-by-side without collisions?
Comment 8 jannis 2024-01-18 06:45:47 UTC

> Did upstream enable it to be installed side-by-side without collisions?

Upstream did not change anything.

For the "static data" that is common between the versions (/usr/share/qlcplus/ and /lib/udev/rules.d), I might have to do a "qlcplus-shared", "qlcplus-data" or "qlcplus-common" ebuild.

The executables are already named differently (/usr/bin/qlcplus vs /usr/bin/qlcplus-qml).

It's just the libraries in /usr/lib64/qt5/plugins/qlcplus and /usr/lib64/libqlcplus* that do collide. The former might be inter-changeable (need to check), the latter is probably not. Might work when one further modifies the variables.pri file:

Do you think it's worth the effort?
