vmware-player missing from repo?

Post by mbjr » Mon Nov 25, 2013 14:49

Hi all,

I just ran the weekly updates and noticed that vmware-player has gone missing from the default repo.

My previous configuration incled app-emulation/vmware-player- and
app-emulation/vmware-modules-271.1#3.10.0-sabayon - this looked like a quite stable combination.

Now this new upgrade seems to get rid of vmware-player, and pulls in the vmware-modules package with version tag 279.* rendering vmplayer faulty. Given the previous modules are also missing from the repo, I can only think of nasty ways out of this, emerging this and that.

Can someone recommend if I better go down the emerge / compile route or wait for this to "magically" show up in the repo again?
