Comment 1 Caleb Tennis (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-07-25 11:34:19 UTC
*shrug*.  Can you rm -rf /var/tmp/portage/PerlQt-3.009_beta1 and try again? 
Comment 2 Martin Wegner 2005-07-25 13:40:31 UTC
Did not help unfortunately. Isn't this directory auto-cleaned when remerging the

I just remembered that portage does store log files of merges:

-rw-r--r--  1 root portage  83M Jul 25 13:45
-rw-r--r--  1 root portage 113M Jul 25 14:03

This proves the infinite loop. Now I was able to find the entry point: It's
within configure. See next attachment.

Emerge log of last try

This is the log file of portage during the last try to emerge this package.

caleb - is that output related to kde-config?

Comment 7 Caleb Tennis (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-07-25 16:53:01 UTC
My 'hunch' here is that we should make this ebuild depend on kde-base/smoke and 
use that particular smoke library, which will also make it dependant on kde 
3.4.  Anyone have any objections to this?  I haven't had any responses at the 
kde-bindings email list on making this build against Qt only. 
alternatively, we can do some trickery in ebuild to use the internal libsmoke, 
but would have to put some blockers on kde-base/smoke. 
Comment 8 Michael Cummings (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-07-25 18:09:48 UTC
no objections here. hard imaginging qt without kde :)
Comment 9 Caleb Tennis (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-07-26 07:18:42 UTC
I commited a beta2 ebuild with some changes.  This should work better, but it 
may force you to upgrade some packages in the the process.  Let's keep our 
fingers crossed that it works. 
Comment 10 Gergan Penkov 2005-07-26 10:46:56 UTC
I can confirm the bug, and that after installing smoke and removing
--enable-smoke from the ebuild (btw this is to build smoke, even if it is
there),   I can install it successfully. 
Probably it is simply a bug in the makefile, because even after that there is a
line showing after 
checking for SmokeQt... yes
checking for SmokeKDE... no
./configure: line 31326: no: command not found
the beta2 is still not in the portage so i could not tell if it works.
Comment 11 Stephane Rodet 2005-09-04 06:24:43 UTC
Just for information the bug is not x86 specific, I have the same on AMD64 
Comment 12 Caleb Tennis (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-03-24 05:17:54 UTC
I think this is fixed in beta2, please reopen if not.
