Description Patrick Twohig 2005-10-21 17:49:19 UTC
An attempt to unmerge sox 12.17.4.r1 results in a crash.  Possibly a broken
ebuild.  I've emerge sync'd a few times (over a few days) to make sure it wasn't
just something on my computer but it's not changed.  Always been the same crash.

I apologize in advance if it's something I'm doing wrong.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
Attempt to unmerge sox-12.17.4.r1 as root.
It also fails as part of a world update.

amy ~ # emerge unmerge sox-12.17.4-r1

Actual Results:  
    selected: 12.17.4-r1
   protected: none
     omitted: 12.17.7-r2

Safely unmerged the older version of sox (12.17.4-r1).

It's also my understanding that ebuilds are essentially bash scripts, so here's
my version of bash installed in case taht's relevant.

Comment 1 Daniel Black (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-10-21 20:41:06 UTC
manually edit /var/db/pkg/media-sound/sox-12.17.4-r1/sox-12.17.4-r1.ebuild 
so that the quotes match. If you have trouble attach this ebuild and I'll tell 
you where to fix it. 
Comment 2 Daniel Black (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-11-07 03:17:48 UTC
You need to fix it on your end sorry. Changing the ebuild on the gentoo's 
servers won't help you to unmerge your slightly broken version. - Reopen if 
you need help.
