pena libgphoto2 # CAMERAS="canon" ebuild libgphoto2-2.1.6-r1.ebuild clean preinst
Generating usbcam-gphoto2.usermap ..
 * Unable to find /var/tmp/portage/libgphoto2-2.1.6-r1/image//usr/lib/libgphoto2/print-usb-usermap
 * and therefore unable to generate hotplug usermap.
 * You will have to manually generate it by running:
 *  /usr/lib/libgphoto2/print-usb-usermap > /etc/hotplug/usb/usbcam-gphoto2.usermap
find: /var/tmp/portage/libgphoto2-2.1.6-r1/image//: No such file or directory
find: /var/tmp/portage/libgphoto2-2.1.6-r1/image//: No such file or directory

preinst should be inline with other steps like ebuild <ebuild> install that executes unpack, compile and so on if they are not done. This problem is present in versions 2.0.54 and 2.1_pre3-r1 at least.

Comment 1 Petteri Räty (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-01-03 10:43:28 UTC
Same seems to apply to postinst.
Comment 2 Marius Mauch (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-01-11 04:58:19 UTC
Hmm, {pre,post}inst aren't listed in actionmap so don't have any dependencies. 
Don't know if there is a reason behind this. Would have to shuffle doebuild a bit to fix this, nothing I'd push into 2.1.2.
Anyone else taking a look at this?
Comment 3 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2013-02-15 21:15:14 UTC
You can call these functions on /var/db/pkg/*/*/*.ebuild if you want. Otherwise, I'd suggest to call the 'merge' target, since that calls both preinst and postinst automatically.
