Description David Warde-Farley 2004-10-13 22:11:58 UTC
When I recently did an emerge -u world, I got a similar error to below for ati-drivers-extra (whatever version was most recent in the tree at the time of writing)

root@obsidian xcham # emerge -u world
Calculating world dependencies -
emerge: there are no masked or unmasked ebuilds to satisfy ">=virtual/linux-sources-2.4".

!!! Problem with ebuild x11-libs/fox-1.2.6-r2
!!! Possibly a DEPEND/*DEPEND problem.

!!! Depgraph creation failed.
root@obsidian xcham # 

Somehow the problem doesn't occur if I just "emerge fox". ?!?

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge -u world 
Actual Results:  
Error message as described in description

Expected Results:  
Successful emerge.

Comment 1 Steve 2004-11-03 21:09:55 UTC
I can confirm this.  I was in the middle of an emerge -u, and ran into thsi error, but with different applications (gconf and gcc ).
Comment 2 Jason Stubbs (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-11-08 04:54:34 UTC
If anyone can reproduce it, please do so with the --debug flag and attach the output. If you are still running 2.0.50-r11, upgrade to portage-2.0.51-r3 first and ensure the problem doesn't go away.

logging of emerge -puv system without and with --debug


I have encountered this problem the first time today and I am using portage

I report this for the records and in the hope that it will help
Comment 4 Jason Stubbs (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-04-15 04:43:47 UTC
Sascha Wuestemann: You're problem is that you have a very old version of gcc still installed which is saying that it is sys-apps/texinfo. Empty its PROVIDE file or just unmerge it.

Others: It's not making sense. If you can get the --debug output, reopen.
