Description Matthew Gates 2005-08-18 07:16:25 UTC
After recent sync and a new version of ipw2100 becoming available, I get a
blocker when trying to update:

$ emerge --pretend --verbose --update world

These are the packages that I would merge, in order:

Calculating world dependencies ...done!
[blocks B     ] <=net-wireless/ipw2100-1.1.0 (is blocking
[ebuild  N    ] net-wireless/ieee80211-1.0.3  -debug 61 kB
[ebuild     U ] net-wireless/ipw2100-1.1.2-r1 [1.1.0] -debug 96 kB

It looks like ipw2100 needs ieee80211, but I have to have the updated version of
ipw2100 before I can get ieee80211...  

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
$ emerge --pretend --verbose --update world

Actual Results:  

These are the packages that I would merge, in order:

Calculating world dependencies ...done!
[blocks B     ] <=net-wireless/ipw2100-1.1.0 (is blocking
[ebuild  N    ] net-wireless/ieee80211-1.0.3  -debug 61 kB
[ebuild     U ] net-wireless/ipw2100-1.1.2-r1 [1.1.0] -debug 96 kB

Expected Results:  
Should merge without blocking.

Yes, it's an unfortunate result of the older ipw2100 version blocking the new
ieee80211 package - which in turn is needed for the newer ipw2100.

You will have to run `emerge -C ipw2100; emerge ipw2100` to get past it.
