Description Hugo Mildenberger 2009-12-11 18:29:20 UTC
Pango emerge fails because it looks for libGL.la in /usr/lib, while media-libs/mesa-7.5.2 installs this file in /usr/lib/opengl/xorg-x11/lib .

You've failed to read recent eselect-opengl post-install message.

I like such comments. In fact, I didn't read this opus, (ask yourself why) but nevertherless I did run "lafixer --justfixit" before I bothered to post a bug report. Reopening.

In that case, try to find the file that lafilefixer missed.
If it did fail to fix a file and did not report it,
the bug is there, not in mesa.
If all files were fixed, this should not be happening.
What was the output of lafilefixer ?

uh, seems like you missed to read comment #1 the second time.

I didn't say there would be bug in mesa. But emerge --update world broke due to pango ebuild trying to edit the .la file, which simply isn't in /usr/lib, as one could also see from the attached build log. Thus the pango ebuild is broken, which I reported, I think, correctly.

A list with dazillion entries. You want me to post it? I fixed the issue locally by creating a symlink from /usr/lib/libGL.la to /usr/lib/opengl/xorg-x11/lib.

You mean you broke your system.
Please run lafilefixer --justfix until it stops fixing la files. If that doesn't fix pango build, run revdep-rebuild.
