Bug 37756

Summary: emerge -B installs as well as builds packages
Product: Portage Development Reporter: jon <jbc28>
Component: CoreAssignee: Portage team <dev-portage>
Severity: major    
Priority: High    
Version: unspecified   
Hardware: x86   
OS: Linux   
Package list:
Runtime testing required: ---
Attachments: output of: emerge -B mplus-fonts

Description jon 2004-01-09 19:30:59 UTC
The build packages only option doesn't appear to work properly in either incarnation, either as -B or --buildpkgonly. I've tried this with features set to buildpkg and unset. The problem occurs in both cases.
Portage is version 2.0.49-r21.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.emerge -B package_name
Actual Results:  
package_name gets installed (merged) as well as built. The tbz file lives in /usr/portage/packages 
as expected 

Expected Results:  
Just built the package, not merged it into databases nor installed binaries

You'll have to provide the output from emerge when you do this.
It works for me and I see no issues in the code.

Reopen if you can show verification.

Comment 3 jon 2004-01-13 10:27:42 UTC
My mistake. Comparing the output of emerge -B and emerge shows some clear (and very reassuring differences). Not sure what happened here, I'm positive it wasn't working before (hence the bug report!).
Thanks for your time,
