I installed the system with gpm. After a while i decided to uninstall gpm and
add the -gpm flag to my USE flags.
I ran emerge --deep --update --newuse world. It recompiled some packages.
Some days later after a reboot i found out that php mod_php and aspell had to be
recompiled aswell. (i found this while running revdep-rebuild)
Reproducible: Didn't try
Steps to Reproduce:
Not tried it due to no free system to do it.
1. merge gpm, mod_php, php and aspell (without -gpm in USE flags)
2. add -gpm to USE flags
3. unmerge gpm
4. emerge --deep --update --newuse world
5. restart apache (to see if the php module still works)
when running emerge with the --newuse flag the packages php, mod_php and aspell
should be recompiled aswell
Severity is major because of the fact that apache wont work without php, this
can be pretty bad for some people, Although i think this bug wont occure verry
This is not a bug, emerge --newuse is not designed to fix dependencies caused by
unmerging a library, you need to use revdep-rebuild for that.
