1 Hi,
3 i worked over the latest Qt3 ebuild to see if i can make it fit nicer
4 into the FHS.
5 I removed /usr/qt/3, Qt not gets directly installed into /usr. Binaries
6 go into /usr/bin, but with a -3 suffix (like moc-3 and designer-3).
7 environment variables and qmake mkspecs are changed to honour this
8 (don't know if UIC and UIC_PATH variables are needed). Include files go
9 into /usr/include/qt3 and libraries into /usr/lib/qt3. The environment
10 variables QTINC and QTLIB are set to this. Shareable files,like mkspecs
11 and translations, go into /usr/share/qt3. Configuration files go into
12 /etc/qt3. Libaries matching *.so.? are directly symlinked into
13 /usr/lib,so no extra library path is needed to run Qt programs.
15 The famous QTDIR variable is also gone,i suspect this might break a lot.
17 As test i compiled kdelibs-3.3.0 with my Qt ebuild installed.
18 ./configure finds Qt without any extra argument, but the kde ebuilds (or
19 eclasses) surely would need to be updated.
21 I'm no experienced ebuild author, but i was very displeased with the
22 current situation, please post your comments and ideas.
24 The ebuild and the new environment files are attached.
