Description Charles Christie 2005-11-15 18:02:42 UTC
OK now quickpkg is giving me headaches. not a single package had been 
quickpkg'd properly, and this is probably what screwed my Gnome and KDE 
installs (although other packages failed, these are the only ones I gave a 
crap about). I don't know why it's trying to quickpkg everything, even the 
packages that I typed in on the extra packages screen. I don't even know what 
quickpkg is, but if it is what I think it is, then I'd rather just download 
the packages off the net and endure huge compile times and call it a day.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install any packages that install durring the "Installing Additional 
Packages" screen

2. Read the errors. "DEBUG:Package project-starfighter could not be 
quickpkg'd. This may be an error in the future."

3. Every package does this, including X and gnome.

Expected Results:  
I expected "emerge x" or "emerge kde" or "emerge project- starfighter." 
Not "Package project-starfighter could not be quickpkg'd."

I'm going to take a stab at this and say that you selected "GRP install" and
then selected 'sync' or 'webrsync' for your Portage tree option.
Comment 2 Charles Christie 2005-11-15 18:26:29 UTC
Nope, I didn't use GRP install, but I did use a portage snapshot from some open
source server something, which is the same place I got my stage 3 install.

Those messages don't really hurt anything. While it is probably a "bug", that
code will soon be torn apart and rewritten. Thanks for the report, though.

Whew, to think for a second that I was about to restart the whole thing. 
Comment 5 Charles Christie 2005-11-15 19:16:48 UTC
Thanks guys.

Moving to Release Media/Installer.
