Description Maurel 2004-03-29 02:14:52 UTC
After I get the basis system running, I make emerge vim and get a message about the missing of ctags-5.5 BECAUSE I have no connection to the internet Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3. Expected Results: On the LiveCD, it is written, I could make a system without a connection. The emerge vim command found the ctags-5.5-r1. This last one wants the ctags-5.5, which is not on the LiveCD nor on the package-CD

If vim isn't on the packages CD, then this isn't a bug. If vim is, then it's a missed dependency. Note that networkless installations let you install a _base_ Gentoo system; vim isn't part of a base installation though.

looks like vim changed its deps for a newer ctags. Unfortunately, we cannot account for this when we create the GRP cds. I would recommend installing the older version of vim that uses ctags-5.5 instead of ctags-5.5-r1. I may be missing the point of the question though - when you say " This last one wants the ctags-5.5" what "last one" are you referring to?
Comment 3 Sven Vermeulen (RETIRED) 2004-04-01 03:48:28 UTC
Clearly, if vim is available as GRP and the GRP dependencies are all fulfilled, then this isn't an issue. If vim isn't available as GRP, then this isn't an issue either. So basically the question is this: do we have "vim" as GRP package? If we do, then the ctags-5.5 dependency (in the vim ebuild of our portage snapshot) isn't in sync with the GRP packages. If we don't, then this is a CANTFIX because "emerge vim" for GRP isn't supported. Maurel: surely you didn't update Portage between the installation and "emerge vim", did you? I mean, you said you don't have an Internet connection so I would think you're still using the Portage snapshot (which is OK).

We are using the same snapshot for building everything release-related. We also put the same snapshot on the cds. Is this one still an issue?

we really cannot account for this ..
