Description Joe Harvell 2006-06-14 11:28:58 UTC
When I try to use emerge --update, it fails due to a maksed dependency for lm_sensors.  But lm_sensors is not installed.

There are a few things that may be of interest:

1. I just upgraded to Portage 2.1.
2. I have been switching between the 2.4 and the 2006.0 profiles so that I could install and test gentoo-sources-2.6, hotplug and udev.
3. When I do have both lm_sensors and lm_sensors-modules installed, I get the same complaint from emerge --update.  But I shouldn't since lm_sensors dependencies are such that they should be met by *either* >=virtual/linux-sources-2.5 *or* sys_apps/lm_sensors-modules.

#emerge --ask --update --deep --newuse world

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Comment 1 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2006-06-14 11:41:54 UTC
Some other package is pulling in lm_sensors.  You should mask it:

echo sys-apps/lm_sensors >> /etc/portage/package.mask

Then try `emerge -auDN world` again.
Comment 2 Joe Harvell 2006-06-14 12:01:27 UTC
OK this is correct behavior.

But the problem mentioned above when I do have lm_sensors and lm_sensors-modules is still there.  I'll open another bug for that one.
