Install Roger Router for Fritzbox 7390 [Solved]

Postby hwenzel » Sat Oct 12, 2013 14:51

I'm a Newbie, running Sabayon KDE on a DELL Inspiron mini, trying to install Roger Router 1.8.0 from http://de.tabos.org/home to use a FRITBOX 7390.

I could not install default download-package with ./configure . I got
glib-compile-schemas not found

Them I tried an ebuild for Gentoo from http://de.tabos.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=10, but:
[hw Downloads # emerge roger-router-1.8.0.ebuild.txt
* IMPORTANT: 8 news items need reading for repository 'gentoo'.
* Use eselect news to read news items.
Calculating dependencies... done!
emerge: there are no ebuilds to satisfy "roger-router-1.8.0.ebuild.txt".
emerge: searching for similar names... nothing similar found.]

Has someone here tried to install successfully or could give me a hint?

Thanks, Henrich

You need to download the ebuild from the Web site to which you linked, then install it via a local overlay. I don't need (or want) to install it myself but, if you don't know how to use Portage and local overlays, the method would be something along the lines listed below. All the commands below must be done as root user (hence the hash prompt shown in the steps below). Open a Konsole/Terminal window and log in as the root user.

1. Synchronise with the Portage repositories those ebuilds on your PC that are in the Portage tree:

Code: Select all
# emerge --sync

2. Edit the file /etc/make.conf and make sure it has the following lines in it at the end of the file:

Code: Select all
PORTDIR_OVERLAY="${PORTDIR_OVERLAY} /usr/local/portage/"
ACCEPT_LICENSE="*"

(Delete the line PORTDIR_OVERLAY="/usr/local/portage/" if already in the file.)

3. Set up the directories for your local overlay:

Code: Select all
# mkdir -p /usr/local/portage/net-misc/roger-router

4. Stop Portage nagging about a missing name for your local overlay:

Code: Select all
# mkdir /usr/local/portage/profiles
# echo "local_overlay" > /usr/local/portage/profiles/repo_name

5. Go to the Web page for the ebuild, download it and save the file roger-router-1.8.0.ebuild.txt to your Desktop.

6. Copy the file into the correct directory:

Code: Select all
# cd /usr/local/portage/net-misc/roger-router
# cp /home/fitzcarraldo/Desktop/roger-router-1.8.0.ebuild.txt ./roger-router-1.8.0.ebuild

(Obviously replace "fitzcarraldo" with your user name.)

7. Generate the manifest:

Code: Select all
# ebuild roger-router-1.8.0.ebuild manifest

8. Merge (install) the package:

Code: Select all
# emerge -1v roger-router

9. Tell Entropy what you did via Portage:

Code: Select all
# equo rescue spmsync


I have not tried it myself, so do not know if it will install or how to use it. There are some other instructions of the Web site to which you linked, so presumably you need to follow those too.

Installation successfully finished thanks to your detailed instruction !!

The only remaining problem for me is to find out where to press the 'Thank you' button :D
