mbrola keywork is marked as "-ppc" 'cause in 2006:

Seems that's gone. Well, do we want to try to build a really old glibc to get
the binaries or should we just mark -ppc?

I'm leaning towards marking -ppc since upstream hasn't updated the binary in a
*long* time.

Opinions?



mbrola is a piece of binary (as ibm-jdk-java) that emerge installs into /opt ...
so we have no sources to build from, so the question is: what is the real status of mbrola for ppc ? will be ppc-supported or not ?

it is marked as "-ppc", if you force emerge to install it, then you get this error message:
"mbrola: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.27: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

that should be fixed this way:

one possible solution of this problem (quick hack):
cd /lib
ln -sf /usr/lib/libstdc++-v3/libstdc++.so.5.0.6 libstdc++.so.27
this should do the job :-)



unfortunately what you fixed is still not working ...

mbrola -h
Not enough arguments, try -h for help

haha...

and it simply does not work for me
this is on ppc




------- Comment #4 From Christoph Mockenhaupt 2005-07-08 11:00:59 0000 [reply] -------

MBROLA 3.02b solves the problem for ppc
this version is in mbr301h.zip, as is mbrola206a... maybe it would be better
to copy the new version for ppc to /usr/bin/mbrola in the ebuild?




input from https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=84322




so i really wander about the future of mbrola/ppc .... it seems we will be out
