Summary: net-firewall/kmyfirewall: missing dependency, broken version 0.9.6

Attachments: Patch for portage ebuild for kmyfirewall.

Description Federico Zenith 2004-04-17 06:07:04 UTC
The kmyfirewall package depends on net-firewall/iptables, but this dependency is not enforced.

Furthermore, kmyfirewall 0.9.6 has not yet been removed nor masked, though its behaviour is known to be broken on Gentoo. is patched specially for this.

thanks - fixed.
Comment 3 Federico Zenith 2004-04-18 03:12:33 UTC
Thanks for being quick, but there's yet a problem - all versions of kmyfirewall depend on iptables, while I've seen in portage that only has the correct dependency. It would not be a very bad thing if were x86, but right now the version marked stable is 0.9.5.

I suggest therefore that the dependency is added to all kmyfirewall ebuilds.

Comment 4 Daniel Black (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-04-18 16:18:03 UTC
Good point. marked stable and other version include a iptables depend too. Thanks again.

Confirmed spotting in portage & closing bug. Thanks!
