Bug 545972

Summary: keep-going does not go on if PORTAGE_TMPDIR ist too small for one of the packages to emerge
Product: Portage Development Reporter: Attila Stehr <as.gentoo>
Component: Core - Interface (emerge)Assignee: Portage team <dev-portage>
Severity: normal    
Priority: Normal    
Version: unspecified   
Hardware: AMD64   
OS: Linux   
Package list:
Runtime testing required: ---

Description Attila Stehr 2015-04-08 13:24:19 UTC
portage checks if there is enough disk space for all packages to emerge.
If the space for a single (or more) package(s) is not enought nothing is emerged at all.
IMO --keep-going should (as usualy) make emerge build all packages but that which needs more space. 
E.g. this happens when libreoffice is among the packages to be updated.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
# create and mount a 2 GB ramdisk
PORTAGE_TMPDIR="<mountpoint>" emerge -vuUND @world

Actual Results:  
 * Space constrains set in the ebuild were not met!
 * The build will most probably fail, you should enhance the space
 * as per failed tests.
 * ERROR: app-office/libreoffice- failed (pretend phase):
 *   Build requirements not met!

Expected Results:  
* if requirements are not met just skip that package, not all
