Description Jan Beich freebsd_committer 2020-09-14 13:14:32 UTC
Created attachment 217951 [details]

- Add _demo suffix similar to bitmap_demo. Inspired by https://github.com/netbsd/pkgsrc/commit/b3c2d76226ac
- glxinfo has consumers, so switch to glx-utils instead of patching to support glxinfo_demo
Comment 1 Alexander Vereeken 2020-09-14 13:50:18 UTC
Would then switch to glx-utils then.
Comment 2 Jan Beich freebsd_committer 2020-12-23 20:22:20 UTC
Ping to x11@. I can switch consumers while keeping CONFLICTS but some users may want other demos e.g., eglinfo, eglgears_x11, glxgears_pixmap.
Comment 3 Emmanuel Vadot freebsd_committer 2020-12-30 15:08:19 UTC
You cannot add a ports that install the same binaries as another one and then changing the name of the binaries of the historical port.
Again doing that kind of stuff without talking to people is very rude.
Never the less I think that depending on mesa-demos for a ports is wrong and instead people should just use the language of their choice to query the opengl info they want. If they really insist for having glxinfo, let them depend on mesa-demos.
