After running the latest update of geoip, i can't find the shipped .dat files. USE flag for city is gone as well. I don't see any use for this version besides the paid services from maxmind. I've also tried geoipupdate but this asks for a maxmind account.

How to get those files back other then going back to the old version of geoip?

Dunno if you figured it out?

But
Code:
geoipupdate.sh -f
for the initial run - then you can update regularly with just
Code:
geoipupdate.sh
again :)

Found it on https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=523034 in the stable-request.

USE-flag for city is listed for me (city, ipv6, static-libs)

Thanks! It actually worked. Somehow i've missed the message after the update. Probably since i never had to do something until now.
