Description Andrei Slavoiu 2006-06-13 23:48:11 UTC
>>> Emerging (17 of 40) kde-base/kdeaddons-3.5.2-r1 to /
>>> checking ebuild checksums
!!! Digest verification failed:
!!! /usr/portage/kde-base/kdeaddons/kdeaddons-3.5.3.ebuild
!!! Reason: Filesize does not match recorded size
!!! Got: 940
!!! Expected: 942

I just want to emerge version 3.5.2-r1, I don't care that version 3.5.3 is broken.

That's a feature, not a bug. Either the Manifest is correct or not.

In this case it is definetelly a miss-feature. So how do you suggest fixing it? Submit a GLEP for version specific manifest files?

We won't fix it, it's not a bug so there's nothing to fix... Either the Manifest is correct, then there's no integrity breach, or it's broken, nothing between... When it comes to signing the Manifest, you only sign it as a whole, so it needs to be checked as a whole.

Thanks, closing.
Comment 5 Andrei Slavoiu 2006-06-14 06:03:49 UTC
Ok, you are right, it's not a bug so it can't be "fixed", but the situation can be improved.
Do you think a global Manifest file would be acceptable? So that you can not emerge any package if the portage tree was corrupted? Wouldn't an error that says you can't emerge sys-libs/glibc because kdeaddons is broken sound ridiculous? I think the error saying you can't emerge the stable version because of the unstable one.

BTW, I will not reopen it again if you close it this time, I just wanted to make sure you realize just how stupid this "desired" behavior is.
Comment 6 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-06-14 06:06:49 UTC
There's gentoo-portage-dev mailing list for such discussions. [1] This is an intended behaviour, as such not a bug.

Thanks again, closing.
