Yeah, and for kicks, here's Xorg:
PKGBUILD
ebuild

Re: Gentoo Portage in Arch

i know this thread is pretty much done with but i just wanted to add:

Use makepkg and srcpac - support Arch Linux -it's why you chose it, right?

Plus I'll say - ease of creating ebuilds vs ease of creating PKGBUILDs was a major reason I choose Arch

Re: Gentoo Portage in Arch

I agree on the point that pacman is a specific distro package management system. So using another for arch linux can rapidly make the system messy.

The only point I'm interrested to install portage isn't for the emerge tool (=pacman) but I need several package which aren't currently in Arch linux. Coming from gentoo, the easiest way I have found is to take the package ebuild and to make a PKGBUILD based on.

So I haven't to spend too much time to create the needed package  big_smile

(I have deleted gentoo because I have a small hard drive (Laptop...)).

Re: Gentoo Portage in Arch

now if someone could write a script that converts ebuilds to PKGBUILDs we'd be rolling smile

I agree. If I knew anything about ebuilds, I'd give it a shot.
Maybe a new thread should be started regarding this...

Re: Gentoo Portage in Arch

there are 2 options:
- make pkgbuilds from ebuilds
- make arch packages from gentoo packages + some ebuild data
Smaller packages have rather clean ebuilds and the install function should be easy to generate from the gentoo one

who wants to write a program which converts those 2?
ick... I'd much rather do it by hand... it can't be that hard... maybe hit the ebuild and get all the name/version/descr crap, and then manually manage the build sections...
get three or four people together and just pump the AUR full of crap 8)

Agree.

I built PKGBUILD f-spot last night and it doesn't require any expertise to do that just patience and some effort to check dependencies.

What I can suggest if someone can create some tools to convert ebuilds to PKGBUILD. That would be great.
