Description Kevin O'Gorman 2005-11-20 10:40:02 UTC
running python-updater reports two packages cannot be installed.
One (wxpython) is alread installed at the version named.
The other (config-kernel) does not appear to exist at all.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
2.note error messages at the end
3.attempt to follow the instructions given

Actual Results:  
treat bin # python-updater
 * Logging disabled due to permissions

 *  Failed Packaged:
 *  ----------------
 *  These packages have failed and need to be re-emerged again.
 *  Alternatively, try re-running this script again to see if it
 *  can be fixed.

 *  emerge -p  \=dev-python/wxpython- \=sys-kernel/config-kernel-0.3.3

treat bin # emerge -p  \=dev-python/wxpython-

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

Successful completion, or at least the ability to emerge the named packages

config-kernel is no longer in portage, just unmerge it; for wxpython, run

emerge =dev-python/wxpython-2.4*
Comment 2 Bryan Østergaard (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-02-02 13:26:25 UTC
I can't see any good way for python-updater to handle this besides failing and leaving it to the user to figure out what needs to happen.

We could strip the version in case that specific version doesn't exist anymore but that would break on SLOTed packages. There's also a bunch of other cases that would be fairly tricky to deal with correctly, like packages being renamed / moved to another category / superseeded by other packages etc.

With the above problems in mind I'm therefore closing this bug as CANTFIX.
