Description Petr Bahula 2022-09-08 13:05:55 UTC
After update system when I emerge our old packages I got:

 * Final size of build directory: 212 KiB
 * Final size of installed tree:  100 KiB
 * ERROR: artisys-lib/art_cmdlineBase-220708072255::artisys_no_corba failed:
 *   nonfatal() not supported in this EAPI
 * Call stack:
 *, line 637:  Called install_qa_check
 *, line 132:  Called source 'install_symlink_html_docs'
 *            60python-pyc, line 118:  Called python_pyc_check
 *            60python-pyc, line  22:  Called nonfatal 'install_hooks' '/usr/portage/metadata/install-qa-check.d/60python-pyc'
 *, line  94:  Called die
 * The specific snippet of code:
 *              die "$FUNCNAME() not supported in this EAPI"

After comment out line 22 in '/usr/portage/metadata/install-qa-check.d/60python-pyc'

       nonfatal has_version ">=dev-python/gpep517-8" || return

all work.
