[gentoo-dev] Masking of SETI@home 3.x and related packages
Sun, 27 Nov 2005 16:43:09
It has been a while since the SETI@home project has moved to a BOINC-based
client. Thanks to Marcus Hanwell (cryos), we have working ebuilds for BOINC
and the new SETI@home client (4.x) in the tree.
The "classic" SETI@home 3.x service has now been discontinued (and the
software is no longer distributed). This is why I will start masking the
relevant packages. These will be removed from the tree in about a month. They
The "seti" local USE flag used in "app-admin/torsmo" and "app-admin/conky"
will be masked in the base profile.
Tracker bug for the new BOINC-based SETI@home is #103250
