The new version works both standalone as before, and from a FreeBSD port.
This is my first time making a port, and I've double checked it and run
portlint, but I have probably overlooked something!
Please have a good look at it and tell me if I've done something stupid :)
You can grab the port here:
It should be extracted to /usr/ports/x11
It should fetch the distfile from my server... but in case you want to install
it the old fashioned way, here is the link:
Changes since the last version:
* It now installs the glATI.h file.
* The panel was installing all kinds of strange things.. and not being very
port friendly. It's still bad but it's much better now. (And accounted for in
* All of the Linux documentation and the README file is installed
* Working FreeBSD "port"! (As in for the ports system)
* README file updated with some worthwhile content including a compatibility
In regards to AMD64 support, this is an i386 build and I wouldn't expect it to
work on AMD64 :)
However, getting an AMD64 version going should be fairly trivial, but I do not
have the hardware to test it.
Tomorrow I can put together and AMD64 package and add support for it to the
FreeBSD port. If you can test/verify that it works I would be thrilled!
