Summary: emerge -b {package-list} sometimes fails to build package tarballs
Product: Portage Development Reporter: James Tucker <ra66i>

Description James Tucker 2006-04-24 09:58:18 UTC
We use an installer script which generates a long package list, and calls

emerge -b {list of packages}

Recently, several packages which were successfully installed on the local system simply did not have tarballs created for them. emerge.log shows the packages being merged, and the packages are locally usable, however nothing appears in /usr/portage/packages/All.

Packages showing this behavior so far from our build sets were:
libpng
freetype
eselect
eselect-opengl
fontconfig

I suspect this may be related to the nvidia-glx-1.0.8756.ebuild, however I cannot be certain.

Workaround: we are currently moving from using "-b" in the first instance, to emerge, followed by a parse of the emerge.log and explicitly building packages 1 by 1 to ensure a complete dependency tree.

You neglected to post emerge --info. We need to know the portage version at least...

Comment 3 Alec Warner archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2006-05-12 14:18:32 UTC
can you provide us an example list ( assuming it's not miles long )

I will debug this tonight if possible.
Comment 4 Marius Mauch (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-01-11 10:23:46 UTC
Urgh, 2.0.
Please test with a current version (>=2.1.1) and reopen if you can still reproduce this.
