Description Tod M. Neidt 2002-01-12 19:01:52 UTC

Ran across some problems with the mplayer-0.60.ebuild

1. a symlink is merged from /usr/bin/gmplayer to

At first, I thought this was due tosomething in the ebuild, but further
investigation indicates that it is probably 'ln -s' somewhere in the Makefile.

2. sandbox violation, seems to occur when installing the fonts. I'll attach the
sandbox log that blocks mkdir /usr/share/mplayer
However, when merging without sandbox, 
!!! /usr/share/mplayer/font -> /usr/share/mplayer/fonts/iso8559-1/arial-14/
!!! /usr/share/mplayer/font -> /usr/share/mplayer/fonts/iso8559-1/arial-14/

is seen during merging to the live filesystem indicating its related to the font

1. Thanks, didnt see this.

2. Again, thanks.  Due to changes in the build system, the ebuild had to be
   updated, but because I already had /usr/share/mplayer/fonts, it did not
   try to recreate it, and I missed it.

   The other problem with the symlinks is basically a portage feature/bug.
   If the real /usr/share/mplayer/font exist, in sertain cases it does not
   get updated with the new one if the new one is a symlink.

   Unmerging the old release (or current) and remerging should fix this
   problem.  You can even consider rm -rf /usr/share/mplayer before merging.

Added mplayer-0.60-r1 which should fix this problems.
