Description Marco Nierlich 2005-08-03 03:47:24 UTC
When updating world with -pt, there were a lot of gnome packages to be pulled
but no package was in the tree list that showed me which package had the
dependencies on gnome.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. having gaim installed (default was -eds)
2. +eds was added to the ebuild of gaim
3. emerge -uDpvt world wants to pull a lot of gnome packages but does not show why

Expected Results:  
gaim should show up in the tree list with a [nomerge  ] prefix

emerge -uDpvtd world
Comment 2 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-08-03 10:33:36 UTC
Because it pulls in evolution-date-server, which depends on a lot of Gnome
packages. NOT a bug.
Comment 3 Marco Nierlich 2005-08-03 11:31:29 UTC
I know that gnome gets pulled in because of eds. But IMO, the package that asks
FOR the evolution-data-server should be listed as a [nomerge  ] in the tree
view. How can someone know what pulls eds (actually it has been a use flag
change of gaim which already was installed in the same version but with the
initial -eds flag)? eds was not given as a package to merge nor is it in the
world file.
With gtk-engines-xfce-2.2.7 in the tree output (coincidencly in the same -uD
world), you can see that gtk-engines-xfce-2.2.7 is being updatet because of
So I think that either you show gaim-1.4.0-r2 in the tree output as well or you
surpress the two [nomerges  ] of the xfce4 packages (the first one being in the
world file).

What do I get wrong?

Question apart: do you read "resolved invalid" bugs or would I have to reopen it
so that someone reads this comment?
Comment 4 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-08-03 11:41:04 UTC
I really don't know what you mean that it does not show what package pulls in eds...

Comment 5 Marco Nierlich 2005-08-03 12:33:17 UTC
So I'm supposed to check the debug output to see what package pulls in eds
(actally I saw this). Not a very userfriendly way. But have you looked at the
output of -uDpvt over at
IMO the normal tree view should show gaim as well.
Comment 6 Mathias Zimmermann 2005-08-03 13:34:51 UTC
emerge -putD world don't show why so many gnome packages will be emerged.
A -eds in /etc/make.conf fix that. But it's strange why emerge -putD world don't
show gaim as the causer.
