Description qeldroma 2008-04-22 12:14:03 UTC
Just tried to setup a new gentoo image for corporate use. Taking actual (today) snapshots, "emerge --sync" after that.

Now, for "emerge system", on several packages i get errors because of this fantastical newly implemented feature called lzma!

I even can't compile the core-utils!!

And yes, i manually compiled lzma-utils in before, that was the first fault i found!

I assume, for making this new, absolutely needed and fantastic feature work, i have to actualize the core-utils? Well, how then, if exactly this is broken?

Is it really needed to implement such fundamental new designs in the stable-release??

Just did a search for lzma in the bugs, there are a lot of packages, that now are broken. On the first sight there are minimum 4 to find!

I would be very glad, if there's a fast solution for this...

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge system
2. or emerge m4
3. or emerge libpng
4. or emerge coreutils

Actual Results:

This is NOT related to the libpng-bug, this is MORE!
Comment 3 Ingmar Vanhassel (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-04-22 12:25:02 UTC
Read the duplicate bug, the maintainer decided to use lzma-compression, and is not going to revert that.
Temporarily mask the newer coreutils and update to a more recent version of portage.

Comment 4 Dennis Birkholz 2008-04-24 17:33:55 UTC
I have created this simple stupid wrapper that is to put in /usr/local/sbin/lzma (don't forget to make it executable and to restart the current bash sessions) that makes it possible to emerge from .lzma-compressed sources but breaks using lzma-util in a default manner. Hope it helps, for me it works!


for file in $@; do
        if [ -r "${file}" ] && [ "$(echo ${file} | grep '\.lzma$')" != "" ]; then
                echo "Unpacking file: ${file} ..." >&2
                /usr/bin/lzma d -so "${file}"
Comment 5 Kanen 2009-01-26 17:09:07 UTC
I was able to fix this by emerging portage without dependencies which updated/fixed my lzma issue.  Then I just went back and re-emerged the dependencies.
