Description Martin Holzer (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-12-26 16:52:34 UTC
emerge doesn't emerge latest stable

after finding one unstable it stops, but it should check every following ebuild 

gnupg-1.0.7.ebuild was x86
gnupg-1.2.0.ebuild was ~x86
gnupg-1.2.1.ebuild was ~x86
gnupg-1.2.1-r1.ebuild was x86
emerge -p gnupg

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

Calculating dependencies ...done!
[ebuild  N   ] app-crypt/gnupg-1.0.7 

after changing
gnupg-1.2.0.ebuild and gnupg-1.2.1.ebuild to stable (x86)
 emerge -p gnupg

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

Calculating dependencies ...done!
[ebuild  N   ] app-crypt/gnupg-1.2.1

What was in package.mask?
Comment 2 Martin Holzer (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-12-30 09:52:01 UTC
nothing changed in package.mask

just edited the ebuilds themself
Comment 3 Martin Holzer (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-01-01 12:38:35 UTC
you could try it with media-video/transcode

change the flag to stable in transcode-

then do emerge -p transcode

no transcode entry found in any package.mask

this is would be nice if portage handled this, but its also more of an error on
the developer side of things ...

in other words, cases like this should also be reported as sep bugs so that ppl
can fix it
Comment 5 Nicholas Jones (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-02-03 06:41:47 UTC
looks like a bad cache entry for 1.2.1-r1
reopen if it's still and issue.
