TigerVNC wanted [Solved]

Post by figueroa » Thu Oct 13, 2011 19:40

Since the wiki article about mixing portage and Entropy suggested posting software repository requests in the form, here goes.

I'm a long-time Gentoo user (2004) but new to Sabayon. I've just installed the new Sabayon 7 xfce and find it very slick. I'm looking for TigerVNC, aka, tigervnc-1.0.1_p20110618 in Gentoo's stable repository. Although the project provides self-contained binaries (not tested by me) as well as source (nor have I tried to compile these), it seemed best to ask first. Perhaps TigerVNC is hidden somewhere in Sabayon already, or it might be added to the repositories?

Thanks,
Andy Figueroa

The procedure changed some time ago, Andy. Please see the thread: Requesting Packages for Entropy - New Policy.

Thank you. I can do that. Disclaimer = mislead by wiki article.
