Subject: [gentoo-dev] modification to nsplugins.eclass
Date: Tue, 13 May 2003 05:09:38
1 Hi all.
3 Somehow I ended up with the request to move phoenix-bin under /opt (where it
4 should belong as a binary package). Along the move few issues came up, one of
5 which was proper plugin handling. I had to add missing "inherit nsplugins",
6 which led me to investigate src_mv_plugins function. As a last action this
7 function was symlinking ../${PLUGINS_DIR} to the location of package specific
8 plugins dir.
10 I presume this (local symlinking) was done on an assumption that all browsers
11 reside under /usr/lib. However while this can be forsed for many packages it
12 breaks when we are dealing with binary package, such as in this case. I have
13 modified the eclass to create absolute symlink instead of local. I would like
14 to ask involved parties to check and confirm the change (I couldn't do the
15 discussion beforehand since phoenix-bin was essentially broken and the fix
16 doesn't change the way other packages are handled).
