Description Thomas Bettler 2005-04-17 07:04:31 UTC
I'd like to see a dialog for user interaction on a collision detected by collision-protect.

1) Abort
2) Overwrite
3) List files
4) List conflict packages
5) ev. Diff for files

Emerge is non-interactive. Once portage has a proper API, other tools will be able to offer this sort of feature.
Comment 2 Thomas Bettler 2005-04-17 07:11:42 UTC
So I request a special parameter for this.

The world is not just about closing bugs, because we have to solve them.
Is about resolving them, because we want to get them integrated.
Comment 3 Jason Stubbs (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-04-17 07:29:25 UTC
Yes, but it will never be available within emerge. When there is an interactive tool that doesn't do this, please file a bug (or reopen this one and assign) against that tool.
