1 going to submit an ebuild for xnap, but I would like to get confirmation on
2 something first.
4 It is a java application. the archive consist of xnap.jar and the
5 various README/LICENSE files. is a sh script to locate xnap.jar and
6 run: java -jar /path/to/xnap.jar
8 Now, for the question, should:
9 A) xnap.jar be placed in /usr/bin alongside
10 B) xnap.jar be placed in /usr/lib/xnap/ while goes into /usr/bin
12 I think B is the way to go, freenet seems to use a similar method:
13 [heim@pdq ~]$ find /usr/lib/freenet/
14 /usr/lib/freenet/
15 /usr/lib/freenet/freenet.jar
16 /usr/lib/freenet/freenet-ext.jar
