Free software for Moon observation or survey

It would be nice to have ebuild for this software. There's no rpm/deb/whatever-packages available for this software, just many tgz-packages for the software/textures/pictures which their quite simple installer extract's to /usr/local/ by default. So it shouldn't be very big problem for someone who can make ebuilds in general :wink:

Well, true, but that would just install the precompiled binary which, in general, is not what Gentoo ebuilds do. The few exceptions are the really big packages like Firefox (firefox-bin) and OpenOffice (openoffice-bin)--and even those are built from source by Gentoo developers to make the binary packages. The overwhelming majority of packages in Portage build from source on your machine.

I took a quick look and just wanted to report that an ebuild for the package would be non-trivial as it uses an uncommon toolchain (Object Pascal/FreePascal under the Lazarus IDE).

Looks like a cool program, though. :)

I've just noticed that toolchain and Pascal stuff, but the program is licenced under GPL and this Linux version is quite new from 12/2009, so maybe other people are interested to try it too ? It even works with this old ThinkPad T30 with 'ATI Radeon Mobility 7500' GPU while they're recommend to have an "Graphic card better than Nvidia 8400 or ATI 3450" which I think it's not :wink:

And the program is quite nice (screenshots).
