Description Christian Rubbert 2002-01-10 07:02:32 UTC
I really like using tab completion, that's why i often run into the following:

crubbbox portage # emerge media-video/mplayer/
Calculating dependencies !!! Couldn't find match for media-video/mplayer/; aborting.

Whereas, after deleting the / it obviously works as it should :)

crubbbox portage # emerge media-video/mplayer 
Calculating dependencies... done!

My suggestion: Detect if a / is used as the last character and in that case,
strip it off!

I hope this is correctly filed in portage this time :)

will be fixed in Portage 1.8.4.  Fixed any minute on cvs.
