Description solar (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-11-07 13:32:25 UTC
alto ~ # ROOT="/" emerge -Kpv system

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

Calculating system dependencies ...done!

Total size of downloads: 0 kB


alto ~ # ROOT="$PWD/onyx" emerge -Kpv system

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

Calculating system dependencies -
!!! There are no packages available to satisfy: "=sys-devel/gcc-3.3*"
!!! Either add a suitable binary package or compile from an ebuild.

!!! Problem resolving dependencies for sys-devel/gcc
!!! Depgraph creation failed.

As we can see in the second part the depgraph is broken as I dont have any 
gcc-3.3.x packages.

The depstring that causes it is.

Depstring: sys-devel/gcc-config !nocxx? ( !arm? ( !mips? ( !ia64? (
!elibc_uclibc? ( !build? ( || ( sys-libs/libstdc++-v3 =sys-devel/gcc-3.3* ) ) )
) ) ) )

Remerging gcc-config with USE=build seems to have no effect and the dep is still 

What does seem to make it work is 
mkdir -p foo
export ROOT=$PWD/foo
emerge -pvKO system

But it's downright strange to have todo this all of the sudden. What I think is 
happening is it's looking in the ROOT= for sys-libs/libstdc++-v3 or 
=sys-devel/gcc-3.3* but neither exists there and portage cant cope with that.

Note: I've been doing lots of installs via ROOT=/foo emerge -K system for a very 
long time without problems, so this seems new to .53_rc(6|7)

Comment 1 Jason Stubbs (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-11-08 02:59:03 UTC
This has nothing to do with gcc-config. I can't tell without more of the debug   
output, but it looks to be the RDEPEND of a gcc-3.4 package you have. 
Comment 2 Jason Stubbs (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-11-11 07:43:56 UTC
If I was unclear in my last comment, I can't reproduce this and I can't see  
any bug here. 
Comment 3 solar (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-11-11 15:38:33 UTC
To work around this bug I had to explicity merge ~arch packages into ROOT = / 
before I could merge into ROOT=/foo. 
I wont be able to get access to the box till mondayish and mondays are 
pretty busy for me.
