Description Randall Nortman 2005-10-12 07:56:56 UTC
revdep-rebuild requires qpkg.   qpkg is deprecated and was recently removed from
gentoolkit.  So revdep-rebuild doesn't work anymore.  Ooops.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
Comment 1 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-10-12 08:01:40 UTC
Would you tell us where did you find out that it depends on qpkg? 

'grep qpkg /usr/bin/revdep-rebuild' returns exactly zero results... 
Comment 2 Randall Nortman 2005-10-12 08:11:49 UTC
Sorry, I should have been more detailed in my report.  Looks like a
revdep-rebuild version issue, because here's what happens on my system:

% grep -i qpkg /usr/bin/revdep-rebuild
# requires: qpkg
                        PKG="$(qpkg -nc -f "$FILE")"

I'd like to also paste the errors I got when I ran revdep-rebuild, but
unfortunately, I can't get revdep-rebuild to spit out the errors anymore, since
I already fixed the broken library dependancies on my system and revdep-rebuild
only tries to invoke qpkg if there are broken dependancies.

My version of gentoolkit is 0.2.0-r1, which is the most recent thing marked
stable.  The previous revision (0.2.0) works fine, since it includes qpkg. 
Perhaps the newer gentoolkit packages (still marked testing) have a newer
revdep-rebuild, which would fix the issue.

Apparently a bad idea to remove it.
Comment 4 Paul Varner (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-10-12 09:12:10 UTC
I'll have this fixed shortly
Comment 5 Paul Varner (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-10-12 09:56:54 UTC
Fixed with gentoolkit-0.2.0-r2

Comment 7 Randall Nortman 2005-10-12 12:42:17 UTC
I believe that does it.  Thanks.
Comment 8 Paul Varner (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-10-13 15:21:49 UTC
Closing. Issue is fixed.
