Subject: Re: util-linux in a Solaris x86 prefix - can't emerge - doesn't compile + one minor ebuild-level issue to maybe fix
Date: Sat, 9 Jul 2011 13:28:04 +0200
Hi Fabian,

Well. That I have tried doing by numerous methods to no avail - and
today I seem to have found the perseverance to build /usr/bin/script
off the misc-utils tree of util-linux hacking all the includes and
headers across the platforms... It even works, more or less, but it
does fail - something just isn't right there concerning the outputs.
BUT: I found ttyrec which, though, won't emerge in the prefix from the
ebuild provided, does compile (and even run and record) fine from the
vanilla source on Solaris 10 - and does therefore solve my problem,
rendering util-linux useless for the purpose I sought.

Many thanks for your advice!
Tamas
