Using uShare in Gentoo: Part 1

Filed under
HowTos

In my article at BIOS_LEVEL, I took a look at uShare. I'll spare you the introduction to uShare and get to the point of this writing. If you're unfamiliar with uShare, then by all means, read our review. In the article, I discussed creating an rc-script for uShare in Gentoo, to automate the process of starting and stopping it. This is beginning of a series of articles on how to package an application for Gentoo's Portage. I'm going to start by creating a more advanced rc-script than what I wrote for the BIOS_LEVEL article, then in later entries create an ebuild and show how to put it into portage so you can emerge ushare. Let's begin by looking at the original rc-script.

According to the popular storyline, there's not much new in 15.04. Of course, a slew of changes and unforeseen features in 15.04 could have just as easily earned a negative reaction, probably from the same people calling the actual release boring. The top of the Linux mountain is a lonely, criticism-strewn place. The truth is, this line of thought is partially correct. There isn't much new in 15.04, at least not in terms of visible changes to the Unity desktop. Read more
