electricsheep 2.6.8_7,1 x11 Deleted on this many watch lists=3 search for ports that depend on this port
Deprecated DEPRECATED: No tarball for new versions, sheep server is gone
Expired This port expired on: 2009-10-01
A nice distributed screensaver
Was Maintained by: dougb@FreeBSD.org search for ports maintained by this maintainer
Port Added: 24 Mar 2002 19:29:06
License: not specified in port


Electricsheep is a distributed screensaver.  It realizes the
collective dream of sleeping computers from all over the internet.
When the screen-saver is activated, the screen goes black and an
animated 'sheep' appears.  Behind the scenes, the screen-saver
contacts an internet server and joins the parallel computation of
new sheep.

As advertised, remove the electricsheep port. The project has had
numerous "issues" over the last couple of years, and the most recent
incarnation has no source tarball available for download. Additionally,
the "Linux" version of the code is not currently maintained, and some
of the features do not work.

Deprecate this port, the sheep server is gone, there is no tarball for
new versions, and the project seems to generally be having "issues."

In xscreensaver 5.07 the xml files for optional screen savers have been
removed. In order to continue supporting those screen savers that we have
in the ports tree I'm adding enhanced versions of the 5.06 xml files to
the port. The xml file installed by this port is "bare bones," while the
one from xscreensaver 5.06 has more features, so remove the option to
intall the one from this port.

While I'm here, man pages are not PORTDOCS.

I'm making this change on a short maintainer timeout (6 days) because
the xscreensaver 5.07 update is blocking on this, and I haven't heard
anything from the maintainer of this port.

Mass-conversion to the USE_AUTOTOOLS New World Order.  The code present
in bsd.autotools.mk essentially makes this a no-op given that all the
old variables set a USE_AUTOTOOLS_COMPAT variable, which is parsed in
exactly the same way as USE_AUTOTOOLS itself.

Moreover, USE_AUTOTOOLS has already been extensively tested by the GNOME
team -- all GNOME 2.12.x ports use it.

Preliminary documentation can be found at:
        http://people.FreeBSD.org/~ade/autotools.txt

which is in the process of being SGMLized before introduction into the
Porters Handbook.

Whoa there, boy, that's a mighty big commit y'all have there...

Begin autotools sanitization sequence by requiring ports to explicitly
specify which version of {libtool,autoconf,automake} they need, erasing
the concept of a "system default".

For ports-in-waiting:

        USE_LIBTOOL=YES         ->      USE_LIBTOOL_VER=13
        USE_AUTOCONF=YES        ->      USE_AUTOCONF_VER=213
        USE_AUTOMAKE=YES        ->      USE_AUTOMAKE_VER=14

Ports attempting to use the old style system after June 1st 2004 will be
sorely disappointed.
