Description Chris Slycord 2004-07-17 14:08:49 UTC
The build for the program "app-admin/testdisk-5.3" indicates that it depends on "reiserfsprogs" but from http://www.cgsecurity.org/index.html?testdisk.html (official site for testdisk) it clearly depends on "progsreiserfs." When I began to emerge testdisk, it indicated outputed the following: "configure: WARNING: No reiserfs library detected." This means that the current ebuild of testdisk will not work with reiserfs partitions because progsreiserfs is masked by default. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.

Just to mention, I was able to get reiserfs support into testdisk by manually configuring/installing progsreiserfs using the version linked at the official testdisk site. http://www.cgsecurity.org/progsreiserfs-0.3.1-rc8.tar.gz

see bug #51773 as to why progsreiserfs is blocked out. until upstream fixes it, not much can be done.

This bug crept up again. Versions 5.9 and 6.2 both have reiserfs? ( sys-fs/reiserfsprogs ) Whereas all the other versions of this package in portage that allow for reiserfs support (versions 5.7, 6.3, 6.4, and 6.5) have reiserfs? ( >=sys-fs/progsreiserfs-0.3.1_rc8 ) Though I can't reopen as I didn't remember having 2 accounts on here.
