Hi, Kevin. Thank you. I'm already maintain several ports. There are some difficulties in porting this software for me:
1. It's graphical gnome-based software. I have no experience in gnome ports. This is not the biggest problem though. 2. It's written in D. Yes, I wrote 'D'. It wants devel/dub and one of the D compilers already available in ports tree: lang/ldc or lang/dmd2. lang/dmd2 is broken under FreeBSD 12 due to inability to work with ino64. lang/ldc doesn't compile under FreeBSD 12: [131/249] cd /usr/ports/lang/ldc/work/ldc-1.7.0-src/runtime/profile-rt/d && /usr/ports/lang/ldc/work/ldc-1.7.0-src/bin/ldc2 -c --output-o -w -O3 -release -relocation-model=pic -od=/usr/ports/lang/ldc/work/ldc-1.7.0-src/runtime/objects -op ldc/profile.d FAILED: runtime/objects/ldc/profile.o cd /usr/ports/lang/ldc/work/ldc-1.7.0-src/runtime/profile-rt/d && /usr/ports/lang/ldc/work/ldc-1.7.0-src/bin/ldc2 -c --output-o -w -O3 -release -relocation-model=pic -od=/usr/ports/lang/ldc/work/ldc-1.7.0-src/runtime/objects -op ldc/profile.d [132/249] cd /usr/ports/lang/ldc/work/ldc-1.7.0-src/runtime/jit-rt/d && /usr/ports/lang/ldc/work/ldc-1.7.0-src/bin/ldc2 -c --output-o -enable-dynamic-compile -w -O3 -release -od=/usr/ports/lang/ldc/work/ldc-1.7.0-src/runtime/objects -op ldc/dynamic_compile.d FAILED: runtime/objects/ldc/dynamic_compile.o cd /usr/ports/lang/ldc/work/ldc-1.7.0-src/runtime/jit-rt/d && /usr/ports/lang/ldc/work/ldc-1.7.0-src/bin/ldc2 -c --output-o -enable-dynamic-compile -w -O3 -release -od=/usr/ports/lang/ldc/work/ldc-1.7.0-src/runtime/objects -op ldc/dynamic_compile.d ninja: build stopped: subcommand failed. 3. Also it wants gtkd. I'm not sure it's already ported to FreeBSD. So, I made a try, but couldn't even start. 2018-04-07 21:55 GMT+03:00 Kevin Oberman <rkober...@gmail.com>: > On Sat, Apr 7, 2018 at 3:43 AM, Pavel Timofeev <tim...@gmail.com> wrote: >> >> Hello, everyone. >> >> I would like to ask if anybody interested and could make a port for >> such a great tiling terminal for Gnome3? >> https://github.com/gnunn1/tilix > > > Since I don't run Gnome3 and don't care for tiling, I'm not likely to do it, > but you might give it a shot, yourself.
