Description Frank 2006-02-08 11:17:09 UTC
the ebuild for patch-2.5.9-r1  wants to patch files, which fails because it isn't there yet !

emerge =patch-2.5.9  works.

vapier - your patch, probably time to drop it or distribute a pre-patched tarball. ;)
Comment 2 Ciaran McCreesh 2006-02-08 11:28:28 UTC
This is a genuine circular dependency. It's like how gcc needs gcc to compile itself. Good thing we put patch in the stage1 tarballs, eh?

no point in wasting time on this
