The latest version of Oolite can be found in my overlay

Code: Select all

layman -a rion
There are usually two versions of oolite in the overlay: the latest unstable release and version to build from svn.
So unstable release is marked as gentoo unstable (~) and svn version is w/o keywords at all. You may need to
unmask oolite if you don't accept such conditions by default.

Now just emerge Oolite usual way:

Code: Select all

emerge oolite
You will find Oolite icon in application menu, alternatively you can start it from console just typing "oolite".

Unfortunately current ebuilds may be slightly unsynced with real requirements of oolite and I don't have much
time to check and improve it. So I'll be glad if you send me some patches =)
all questions and suggestions please send to my jabber or overlay bug tracker.

Hi rion,
thanks for the ebuild. I could emerge oolite on an amd64 machine without any problems. But I have occasional crashes during gameplay:

Code: Select all

$ oolite
/usr/games/bin/oolite: line 1:  1674 Speicherzugriffsfehler  openapp oolite
Speicherzugriffsfehler = Segmentation Fault

Do you know that there is an ebuild request?
http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=106890

I will try this one, since segfaults during gameplay is no fun.

P.S.:
