Description Johannes Findeisen 2002-06-30 05:10:20 UTC
hello gentoo devs, i have found some problems in the --clean function of portage.  when i do the following: #emerge -c pam-login i can't login after this anymore. i have fixed it with connecting to my server through ssh and do #emerge pam-login after that everything works fine again, but what do people with only one pc do? ok, well there is the boot cd, but... hmmm :-(  when i do: #emerge -c apache #emerge -c samba i can't start them anymore because some binaries in: /usr/sbin/ was missing (apache, smbd and nmbd).  when i do: kern1 root # emerge -pc java-config >>> These are the packages that I would unmerge: dev-java/java-config selected: 0.2.4-r1 protected: 0.2.4 omitted: none >>> Packages in red are slated for removal. >>> Packages in green will not be removed. you can see, that portage wants to unmerge the -r1 version, although it is the newest version? when i do: #emerge -c java-config #emerge -pu world it lists me java-config-0.2.4-r1 for updating again. the same is it with pam-login: kern1 root # emerge -pc pam-login >>> These are the packages that I would unmerge: sys-apps/pam-login selected: 3.6-r2 protected: 3.6-r1 omitted: none >>> Packages in red are slated for removal. >>> Packages in green will not be removed. i got the same problems with some other apps too (apache i think). i have done: #emerge -C apache #emerge apache to get the newest version running. i know, that this is not the solution because some apps needs older libs etc. i do this only with apps like samba or apache where i know, that i can emerge the newest version and everything works fine again. for me it's not a problem because i'm working very carefull with the emerge -c function since my production server was totally shot down after i have run emerge -c i know now that this is not a stable function, so i do: #emerge -pc foopackage #emerge -c foopackage and i'm making a list of all packages i've cleaned on a sheet of paper - on my desktop, so i can emerge a package again when some things are not working properly. i know, that some parts of this has been posted allready. i do this again, because i don't need help, but i want to give detailed information about things that happend and we need a solution for this. i've posted this to the dev list two days ago and have tested these things until today some times more. i hope this helps. i'll post more information when i found out more. hanez... ;-)

What version of Portage are you using?
Comment 2 Johannes Findeisen 2002-07-02 03:05:57 UTC
uuups, i have fogotten... i have installed portage 2.0.8 but it was portage 2.0.7 where i have the problems. i didn't tried unmerging with the new version. when i now do: #emerge -pc java-config everything is ok now. but when i do: #emerge -pc pam-login it will remove 3.6-r2 instead of 3.6-r1 i'll try cleaning some other apps in the next days and will report all errors here.
Comment 3 Johannes Findeisen 2002-07-10 04:33:03 UTC
hello daniel, i don't know if there is a relationship between these things but i say it here before i forget it. i have yesterday updated my system with #emerge -pu world after i have done this i could see, that mozilla was forced to be updated (1.0-r2 -> 1.0-r3). so i did: #emerge -u world everything was fine so i did: #emerge -c mozilla and it safely unmerged the old version of mozilla. now when i'm making: #emerge rsync #emerge -pu world portage has forced the older version (1.0-r2) to be installed. i know that older versions sometimes are needed for other software but this is the 1.0-? version. isn't it the same? i hope it helps... hanez

uuups, forgot it again. portage 2.0.11 is installed on my system.

Portage 2.0.19 should have 100% working emerge clean (all these bugs have been fixed for a while)
