    Installing e17: CVS error for evidence (file manager?)


    Hi guys, I just installed the latest Gentoo, and I'm trying to get e17 (the development version of Enlightenment to work). Now all packages compile fine except evidence, the file manager. I always get this error:
    Code:
    >>> emerge (23 of 23) app-misc/evidence-9999 to /
    >>> md5 files   ;-) evidence-9999.ebuild
    >>> md5 files   ;-) files/digest-evidence-9999
     * This is a LIVE CVS ebuild.
     * That means there are NO promises it will work.
     * If it fails to build, FIX THE CODE YOURSELF
     * before reporting any issues.
    >>> Unpacking source...
     * Fetching CVS module evidence into /usr/portage/distfiles/cvs-src ...
     * Running  cvs -q -f -z3 -d ":pserver:anonymous:@cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/evidence" login
    Logging in to :pserver:anonymous@cvs.sourceforge.net:2401/cvsroot/evidence
    cvs login: authorization failed: server cvs.sourceforge.net rejected access to /cvsroot/evidence for user anonymous
    
    !!! ERROR: app-misc/evidence-9999 failed.
    !!! Function cvs_fetch, Line 332, Exitcode 1
    !!! cvs login command failed
    !!! If you need support, post the topmost build error, NOT this status message.
    Now the Gentoo wiki says problems with emerging could be caused by using svga flags, so I also run the emerge commands with the USE="-svga" flag. To no avail. Anyway, for some reason emerge seems to be unable to access the server. Does 'Line 332, Exitcode 1' mean it is buggy code?

    Thanks for any pointers!

    The only thing I can think of is not following the proper order. Check get-e.org at:

    http://www.get-e.org/User_Guide/English/_pages/2.2.html

    It tells you the order you have to emerge the stuff.


    I've installed Enlightenment successfully, but I've not used Evidence (I use Rox), so I can't rightly help. Sorry.

    Read the error message - the problem is with the Sourceforge CVS server.

    Ok, so it's not a problem with the ebuild or something? And I can safely omit evidence, and I'll still be able to run e17?

    Code:
    cvs -q -f -z3 -d ":pserver:anonymous:@cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/evidence" login
    The problem in the ebuild is with that line. It should read:
    Code:
    cvs -q -f -z3 -d ":pserver:anonymous@cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/evidence" login
    .
    Try reporting this on the Gentoo Bugzilla or patch it yourself.

    Thank you for clearing it up. But I won't take credit for something I found, after all you found the problem... If you don't post it, I will. But is there a way to replace the build script - I mean, can I run a modified eBuild if it's not on the server?

    Yeah:
    Code:
    nano -w /etc/make.conf
    PORTDIR_OVERLAY="/usr/local/portage"
    ^X
    mkdir -p /usr/local/portage/app-misc/evidence
    cp /usr/portage/app-misc/evidence/evidence-9999.ebuild /usr/local/portage/app-misc/evidence/
    Then make the changes to /usr/local/portage/app-misc/evidence/evidence-9999.ebuild and run:
    Code:
    ebuild /usr/local/portage/app-misc/evidence/evidence-9999.ebuild digest merge
    .
    And feel free to post it to the Bugzilla, just make sure that you search first to see if somebody already has.
