This builds and starts on amd64 but I'm dubious about whether it would work correctly in practise. I don't imagine anyone will want to use it. Best just let it die.

This has been superseded a few times over and the current fork is NetRadiant-custom. There is an open bug about the older NetRadiant but I only dabbled in Quake mapping so never cared enough. https://bugs.gentoo.org/352981

This is a remnant of the Half-Life server stuff that vapier removed in 2005 with the message "valve sucks at linux". I could say more about it but nobody cares.

I'll try to look through some of these. I still care about UT and even worked on (but didn't finish) a new UT99 ebuild not so long ago. Unfortunately it's never been a top priority.

This is still usable on m68k, which is the Atari's own architecture. The code assumes 32-bit longs so it won't work on 64-bit but it probably wouldn't be that hard to fix if someone cared enough. I'm interested in m68k but for the Amiga rather than the Atari. I'm not sure how useful this is in practise. On the Amiga, I would still use the AmigaOS partitioning tool over something like this. There is no replacement for the Atari on Linux as far as I can see though so I think it should stay. -- James Le Cuirot (chewi) Gentoo Linux Developer
