Subject: [gentoo-dev] Ebuild questions
Date: Sat, 12 Jul 2003 01:52:28
1 I've been working on creating an ebuild this week and after working with it I
2 have some questions about how ebuilds work.
4 1. I assume that if I add no functions to an ebuild the process is A)
5 src_unpack, B) src_compile, C) src_install. In other words there are three
6 steps or functions that will be executed. If I desire I can make my own
7 functions for these but if I don't I get these three steps executed by emerge.
9 2. What is the best way to let the user know what's happening - for example,
10 "compiling xyz module now". I notice some builds use einfo to put out
11 messages about what you have to do after install (add user to groups, etc).
12 Are there specific ebuild functions I should use or are plain old echo
13 statements okay?
16 Thanks.
