Description Ernst Bachmann 2005-08-25 04:51:15 UTC
ed2k_hash from net-p2p/ed2k_hash is a small utility to calculate ed2k hashes   
from files.   
recently the net-p2p/mldonkey ebuild started to install a conflicting binary,  
overwriting the net-p2p/ed2k_hash one. Since the mldonkey one calculates lots 
of different hashes, not only ed2k ones, its way slower, so you'd usually want 
to keep the net-p2p/ed2k_hash version arround. 
simply re-emerging obiously solves the problem. 
Since the mldonkey version does much more than just calculating ed2k-hashes, 
it might make sense to rename this one to get rid of the conflict, maybe 
install it as "mld_hash" or something... 

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge net-p2p/ed2k_hash 
2. emerge net-p2p/mldonkey
