Dillo SVN complete, Fast-Track on its way...

The Dillo SVN ebuild is now complete. I successfully compiled and ran Dillo SVN. You will need the ebuild and the updated patch. The png is available in the files directory of Dillo2 in portage but I will provide it here for convenience.

/usr/local/portage/www-client/dillo/dillo-9999.ebuild
/usr/local/portage/www-client/dillo/files/dillo2SVN-inbuf.patch
/usr/local/portage/www-client/dillo/files/dillo.png

I have also successfully compiled and installed Fast-Track and all of its dependencies including Winexe. Winexe required an older autoconf for me to get it installed so that's still an issue. Also it seems that Fast-Track has a whacked out directory structure (probably due to its origins on BackTrack) and its taking a good amount of work to get it to work seamlessly on Gentoo. I'm not sure there is much I can do at this point without some serious work. I'm going to take another look at it to see if I'm missing something simple to make it all work better. Right now it works but there are PATH issues so you have to be in the same directory as fast-track.py for it to run properly.

I just installed the latest source. The problem is NOT fixed. Check the bugzilla for dillo2 to get more information on the patch.

ok i made a directory */dillo/file/*.patch and got installed this . it work fine and finnaly with css support in this version.

i have here a great game for linux but no ebuild for the svn source. the dev on this project goes very fast. maybe u already know this game. Its warzone2100 (http://wz2100.net).

it would be nice if u can make a ebuild for it too.

I'm not a big gamer but I'll take a look at making an ebuild for warzone2001. A libsoup svn ebuild will probably not be that difficult so I might get to that first. What's the issue you are having with the current libsoup?

im curent a active user of webkit-gtk from svn. libsoup, libunique from git/svn is current very recommend by the developer, but no one of them has a clean ebuild for it. fortunetaly i found here some help on this page.

i guess if i continue with my "wishlist" and u are allways so fast. we get soon a seperate overlay...>> chris-overlay XD with a lot of usefull ebuilds.

u c i need a live svn/git ebuild for libsoup and libunique (http://live.gnome.org/LibUnique)
