Log message:
When testing for the existence of the symlink before removal, use
"test -h", not "test -e" which tests for the existence of \ 
the target
of the symlink.

Bump the PKGREVISIONs of suse100_vmware and suse91_vmware.

Log message:
Assume that the +ROOT_ACTIONS script is always executed from the
current working directory.  This should fix problems installing the
suse*_base and suse*_vmware packages as a privileged user.

When this package is installed as a privileged user, the +ROOT_ACTIONS
script is executed from ${WRKDIR}/.pkginstall before the package
metadata directory exists.
   2007-07-29 07:20:04 by Johnny C. Lam | Files touched by this commit (427) | Package updated
Log message:
* Add new emulator framework in pkgsrc/mk/emulator that handles all
  binary-only packages that require binary "emulation" on the native
  operating system.  Please see pkgsrc/mk/emulator/README for more

* Teach the plist framework to automatically use any existing
  PLIST.${EMUL_PLATFORM} as part of the default PLIST_SRC definition.

* Convert all of the binary-only packages in pkgsrc to use the
  emulator framework.  Most of them have been tested to install and
  deinstall correctly.  This involves the following cleanup actions:

    * Remove use of custom PLIST code and use PLIST.${EMUL_PLATFORM}
      more consistently.

    * Simplify packages by using default INSTALL and DEINSTALL scripts
      instead of custom INSTALL/DEINSTALL code.

    * Remove "SUSE_COMPAT32" and "PKG_OPTIONS.suse" from pkgsrc.
      Packages only need to state exactly which emulations they support,
      and the framework handles any i386-on-x86_64 or sparc-on-sparc64

    * Remove "USE_NATIVE_LINUX" from pkgsrc.  The framework will
      automatically detect when the package is installing on Linux.

  Specific changes to packages include:

    * Bump the PKGREVISIONs for all of the suse100* and suse91* packages
      due to changes in the +INSTALL/+DEINSTALL scripts used in all
      of the packages.

    * Remove pkgsrc/emulators/suse_linux, which is unused by any

    * cad/lc -- remove custom code to create the distinfo file for
	all supported platforms; just use "emul-fetch" and \ 

    * lang/Cg-compiler -- install the shared libraries under ${EMULDIR}
	instead of ${PREFIX}/lib so that compiled programs will find
	the shared libraries.

    * mail/thunderbird-bin-nightly -- update to latest binary
	distributions for supported platforms.

    * multimedia/ns-flash -- update Linux version to 9.0.48 as the
	older version is no longer available for interactive fetch.

    * security/uvscan -- set LD_LIBRARY_PATH explicitly so that
	it's not necessary to install library symlinks into

    * www/firefox-bin-flash -- update Linux version to 9.0.48 as the
	older version is no longer available for interactive fetch.
