I suggested Kuroo, but Kuroo no longer exists. [Solved]

Post by albfneto » Wed Sep 24, 2008 4:01

Many Sabayon users install packages from Entropy and also from Emerge.
Kurro is a gUI to Portage
I suggest a compiled copy of Kuroo 0.81 RC1, because is the last version ( now Kuroo is not continued) that works, also im KDE 4, i tested.
I suggest to make compilation of Kuroo and saving it to Entropy, because Kuroo have many users, and this week it will be removed from Official Portage repositories, and their ebuilds cannot more located from the original site:
http://www.kuroo.org

I know that kuroo is for portage, but i hope that it may be useful for these Sabayon users that enjoys Entropy and also Portage.]If you want, you may include Portato, Himerge and Porthole.
They are found in Portage, but not compiled copies in Entropy.

kuroo is dead, no longer developed

We've been thru this all before and won't be bringing it in again.

Development is halted due to lack of spare time
Kuroo is now unmaintained. I want to thank all contributors of usability, coding and translations.

albfneto, I also use Kuroo and, as it is going to be removed from Portage, I have already backed-up to my home directory the directory /usr/portage/app-portage/kuroo/ and its contents, and also the file /usr/portage/distfiles/kuroo-0.81_rc1.tar.bz2. That way I can create an ebuild for it in my local overlay in future if necessary (see one of my threads last year on how to create a local ebuild, e.g. viewtopic.php?f=54&t=11875, as it's not difficult).

Yes the idea is to "save" Kuroo, because is a good application, and is no more developed.
I use the version 0.81 RC1, and found that is not broken and works well even in kde 4.
