The Community Initially, […]

Developing ebuild for Gentoo

I am currently working on the development team for the accounting package LedgerSMB and I have got to a stage with that development that I am looking at getting a working ebuild (or possibly several, due to dependency issues) for LedgerSMB on gentoo. These are the steps that are probably going to have to be done […]
