New xine snapshot in portage

So, after the quick fixes of last night, and a lot of work on the configure file to cut it down to manageable size, trying to use pkg-config instead of compile trials, I’ve decided to update the snapshot in portage to a new version.

Please note that there are a few things that needs to be cleaned up, like for instance the new libcaca support requires also a new version of xine-ui to go with it, or it will ask two different libcaca libraries.

Unfortunately I still have a few things to fix on xine-ui before making a new snapshot of that too (although I have to say that I’d rather stop caring about xine-ui, but not something I can do).

Comments, bug reports and so on about the new snapshots are welcome, as I want to flesh out the problems as soon as possible, so that I can fix them. And I also want to know if the time I spend on xine is not wasted time, that I could spend on something else..

  1. i use xine! also, from helping a lot of people in #amarok i *know* that xine is the most common engine… so don’t give up, people do use xine-lib ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Yeah man, thanks for all your great job for Gentoo!When I read your blog, I really think you work to much for Gentoo … even if I also think : “Gosh, what would Gentoo become without this guy?”.Maybe you should try to find someone to help you (mi dispiace, pero non ho il sapere per ayutar te … and my Italian sux ;))Grazie mille ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. Well time spent on xine-ui is a waste of time. I think we’ve talked about this before.I’ll sync my world and try out that snapshot. ๐Ÿ™‚
