Description Niels 2005-11-12 17:39:47 UTC
When trying to emerge smac-6.0a with:
 ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~x86" emerge smac-6.0a
the whole Process dies with the following error:

>>> Install smac-6.0a into /var/tmp/portage/smac-6.0a/image/ category games-strategy
 * Copying files... this may take a while...

!!! ERROR: games-strategy/smac-6.0a failed.
!!! Function src_install, Line 61, Exitcode 3
!!! patching
!!! If you need support, post the topmost build error, NOT this status message.

It seems that verifying patch.dat works but patching itself does not...

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. mount alpha centauri cdrom (or export a folder as CDROOT)
2. emerge smac-6.0a

Actual Results:  
See the Error posted above.

Expected Results:  
Should have finished.

What gave you the idea that it *would* work?
Comment 4 Niels 2005-11-13 14:08:33 UTC
It's a Patch isn't it?

However, it works with the Patch commented out in the ebuild.
Comment 5 Chris Gianelloni (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-11-13 14:13:46 UTC
OK.  The game does not have KEYWORDS for amd64 because it DOES NOT WORK on
amd64!  This is a simple concept.  You cannot expect us to support a BINARY game
from a company that no longer exists on a platform it DOESN'T WORK ON and we

The only "bug" here is that you tried to bypass our KEYWORDS and failed.
Comment 6 Niels 2005-11-14 00:09:29 UTC
Um... well sorry.
You meant my architecture, I didn't want to annoy you.

But as you can see I emerged it with ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~x86" emerge smac-6.0a...

However, it works and all is well.

Comment 7 Chris Gianelloni (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-11-14 06:26:43 UTC
Ehh... you do know that ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~x86" doesn't make it think it is an
x86 or anything?  It just makes portage allow installation with those KEYWORDS.

Anyway, the package does not patch properly on amd64, which is why it does not
have amd64 KEYWORDS.

As stated in the FAQ, we don't want bugs on stuff that doesn't have the proper

Also, you should be using /etc/portage/package.keywords rather than
ACCEPT_KEYWORDS on the command line.
