compile colordiff

Postby php7 » Tue Dec 08, 2009 11:54

Hello,

i'm new at Sabayon, but have been using Gentoo since 2004. Gentoo's portage is pretty cool since it's have lots of apps. Now using Sabayon I thought I might keep distance from using it since I might damage my Sabayon. So I use Sulfur.
My problem now is, every now and then, I wanna have some tools I cannot find them in Sulfur.
For instance, I wanna compile "app-misc/colordiff". Unfortunately Sulfur won't find it in it's repository.
I said, OK, let's download it from the source: http://colordiff.sourceforge.net/colordiff-1.0.9.tar.gz --> Done!
Uncompress it. --> Done!

So now comes my question:
What's the next step?
Could you guys lead me through a bit and tell what do I need to do in order to compile it?

OR do you have other far more elegant methods for doing this? : :roll: :lol:
Thanks a lot!

if it's not in entropy - request the package on our bugs page or install it via portage, avoid installing things from source outside of the package manager unless you are totally out of options. It's not wrong to use portage, just use it wisely.

emerge -av foo
look at the deps and install the deps via entropy than finally emerge foo

hello joost

looks like I came across the right people.
can you tell me where I can file a bug?
i'm asking cause there are other 2 or 3 apps i did not found in entropy (although thery are in gentoo's portage).
i have their names at home (right now at work). i can only recall one, which is app-misc/screenie.

by the way, thanks for the quick reaction. i'll try to install tonight colordiff over sulfur. :mrgreen:

Colordiff is already in entropy. See joosts note above.
