Description Mrugesh Karnik 2005-05-17 16:08:05 UTC
I really liked the pppoeconf software from Debian, found here:

It isn't in portage. Would it be possible to have it included in portage? Or..
would it be possible for anyone to give me atleast a sketch of the ebuild? I'm
just learning bash programming and would rather like to use the software now,
than wait till I learn to write the ebuild.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
Comment 1 Mrugesh Karnik 2005-05-17 16:24:14 UTC
May I also add pppstatus to as a request? I just tried slurm (its in portage),
which is suppose to be a replacement for pppstatus, but I prefer pppstatus.
Thank you. :)

do you have an ebuild proposal?
Comment 3 Mrugesh Karnik 2005-05-20 01:20:50 UTC
I didn't understand exactly what you meant by an "ebuild proposal". But if I
understand it correctly, I would like to see both of theses software included in
Portage. The other day, I was just looking at the various ebuilds. I looked at
the pppconfig ebuild and it seems that it won't be too difficult, even for me,
to write an ebuild for pppoeconf. I shall try to write an ebuild in the new few
days. I would appreciate any help. Thank you. :)

no one stepped up to make an ebuild for this.
it's time to close this bug.
