Description Vincent Penne 2005-07-05 02:05:34 UTC

this ebuild to install the latest version.

Vizigo is a board game, allowing one to connect on IGS and play go with
thousands of player.

Here's a slightly cleaned up ebuild.

It looks to me like there is a copy of fltk included in the tarball.  It would
be nice if the ebuild would use the system-installed fltk instead and dep on
Comment 3 Vincent Penne 2005-08-02 01:47:15 UTC
ViZiGO uses fltk 2, a very old version of it, with slight customizations. Fltk 2
has never been officially released, so even if Gentoo was including a beta of
fltk 2 (it rightly provides fltk 1.1 only), it wouldn't work because the library
has evolved a lot ever since.

I do statically link against the fltk library I include in the archive, the
resulting executable is around 400Kb, so I don't think it's really a problem.

So, just considere the GUI toolkit in vizigo to be a custom library, just like
in cgoban for example, which does also include its own GUI lib.
Comment 4 Vincent Penne 2005-08-02 05:08:53 UTC
Version 1.09 is now available, just rename the ebuild to vizigo-1.09.ebuild

It fixes a problem when first logging in under a newly created IGS account with
vizigo. (IGS  is the go playing server that vizigo connect to)

It no longer builds.
