Hi,
I'm having the following problem ever since the descent rebirth package was changed:
Code:

I'm not sure what to look for in the sconf.log. The useflags were

I do have the cd roms, but no more rom drive (I ripped both before my drive was not accessible anymore). But now that you mention it, I used to have d1x-rebirth and d2x-rebirth before dxx-rebirth. They worked, but an update required me to uninstall both. So where am I supposed to place the game files? The previous ebuild required me to enter a path to those files...

https://wiki.ubuntuusers.de/Spiele/Descent/ and https://www.holarse-linuxgaming.de/wiki/descent should help a little bit, ( german guides )

From reading the ebuild, it looks like game data is now handled through
Code:
|| ( games-action/descent1-data games-action/descent1-demodata )
|| ( games-action/descent2-data games-action/descent2-demodata )
The immediate problem is games-action/dxx-rebirth-0.59.100 fails to compile with dev-games/physfs-3.0.1-r1, which was reported 2018-04-12 and never fixed. As best I can tell, it was never forwarded upstream (or if it was, I cannot find the report upstream, nor does the Gentoo bug report reference sending it upstream). However, an Arch Linux user reported this upstream as Scons fails with error "Header physfs.h is parseable, but cannot compile the test program." on 2017-10-21 (yes, months before it was reported to Gentoo) and upstream responded the same day with follow up questions, and the next day with Suppress PhysFS deprecation errors, which the Arch user who reported the problem says fixed it for him.

So your problem is that you need Gentoo to bump the ebuild to a newer release, or to a live snapshot if upstream has not provided a fixed release. Interestingly, upstream seems to maintain their own ebuilds, separate from the ones in Gentoo. If the Gentoo ebuild doesn't work for you, you could try copying the upstream ebuild to an overlay. If that works better, ask the Gentoo maintainer to sync to upstream's ebuild. If they're already doing the work, Gentoo may as well benefit from it.

hmm, I see. Depending on how much time I will have the next weeks, I'll try to get this to run. With the links you provided, I might be able to troubleshoot the error.

What is there to troubleshoot? Upstream was notified and issued a workaround/fix. All that you need to do is use it, either by backporting their fix or updating to a version that includes it. If the fix works for you and you have a Gentoo Bugzilla account, you could post to that bug to remind the Gentoo maintainers that an update is needed.

I tried the following:
    downgrading physfs to v2.* as mentioned in the bugzilla
    patching physfs-3.* as mentioned on github

Unfortunately, both did not work out, downgrading will cause dxx-rebirth to exit compiling with the same error and the patch breaks physfs. I'll try some more things once I'm not so tired anymore [/list]

What did you patch in physfs? The github issue only talks about patching dxx-rebirth.

Since Gentoo generally follows an upstream-first philosophy, I suggest you try upstream's code as-is from a more recent ebuild. If it works, bumping the Gentoo ebuild would fix this for everyone. If it doesn't work, upstream needs to be notified so that they can try again.

Oh, I misunderstood the comments in github then. I applied the patch successfully to dxx-rebirth, but it still fails to build.

From the information available, there is nothing further we can do to help you. If you need help, you must post output showing how it fails, and preferably also tell us exactly what you patched and how.

OK, that's a different issue. According to Google: "vm_vec_sub with equal value inputs" this is similar to Rebirth issue #337: Arch Linux gcc-7.1 fails to build: __builtin_constant_p quirks; -Werror=format-truncation and/or Rebirth issue #385: Build Failure: draw.cpp - error: call to ‘dcx::vm_vec_sub_same_values’ declared with attribute error. The exact file is different, but since it's a header, that's plausible. Upstream fixed #337 in mid-2017. Upstream resolved #385 without any changes, but it looks like that is because that user, like you, tried to compile a version that lacked the fix from #337. It looks like 0.59.100 needs multiple fixes for current systems. How many will be required is unknown, but you may be at this a while - or you could do as I suggested above and try a more recent snapshot, since upstream does seem to fix these problems as they are reported. Is there a specific reason you want to use 0.59.100 instead of a more recent snapshot?

that is the most current ebuild available via portage.
I think I could compile the most recent source code, but I have no idea how to use scons..
Code:
scons: Reading SConscript files ...
NameError: name 'srcdir' is not defined:
  File "/home/yuki/reactor/dxx-rebirth_v0.60-weekly-04-14-18-src/SConstruct", line 4019:

    __get_objects_common=DXXCommon.create_lazy_object_getter([os.path.join(srcdir, f) for f in [

There was a similar or same issue:
https://github.com/dxx-rebirth/dxx-rebirth/issues/350
But the maintainer said they fixed everything so I have no clue what is wrong now..

Yes, the ebuild in Portage is out of date for this package. The Gentoo maintainer for this package seems to be on hiatus, as evidenced by the bug report from April that was already solved upstream before it was filed in Gentoo, yet is still open in Gentoo and was never referred upstream. That is why I encouraged you to use upstream's ebuilds, which appear to be much more current. Either those work and solve your problem, or they don't work and somebody needs to report the breakage so that they get fixed. Once they work, whether now or after reporting any lingering problems, someone can ask the Gentoo maintainer to update to a newer version.

As I read the cited ticket, the developer closed it as not-reproducible in October 2017. In June 2018, he said he fixed it and cited some commits that are all dated April 30th 2018. You tried to build a snapshot from April 14th (assuming American MM-DD-YY, rather than European DD-MM-YY, since the American interpretation is the only interpretation that does not cause an out of range month). The April 14th snapshot would predate the cited commits by about two weeks. Looking at the change in the first commit cited versus the line printed in the traceback you showed also indicates that you don't have that fix. Please try applying the developer's fixes or, preferably, using current code.

hmm, I didn't realise that the nightly builds were not the most recent. Building the cloned git seems to work.
Thanks for the help, Hu ^^

Did you build from source by hand or did you use the ebuild I referenced above? Since the Gentoo maintained ebuild for this package no longer works as-is, it needs to be modified or replaced. Ideally, upstream's ebuilds would be in good enough condition that the Gentoo maintainers could replace the current ebuild with the ones from upstream. If you used the ebuilds I referenced, and they worked, that would be helpful in getting those ebuilds into the tree. If you have not tried them, someone will need to try them before they can be added to Portage.

Regardless, I suggest filing a bug requesting that the Gentoo maintainers bump to a newer version. Users should be able to run emerge dxx-rebirth and get a working install, without local patches or other special workarounds. Currently, that does not happen. You hit 3 different problems (physfs 3, gcc-7, Python 3) with the current snapshot in the tree, and the goal is 0 problems.
