Description Guenther Brunthaler 2006-08-09 15:24:23 UTC
When trying to update my "x86" system today, "emerge -avuDN world" failed. The reason is that the "simgear" library, which is required by the "FlightGear Simulator", depends on ~media-libs/openal-20050504, but this version has been removed in favour of the new 0.0.8 release of the ebuild.

emerge -puDN simgear

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

Calculating dependencies -
emerge: there are no ebuilds to satisfy "~media-libs/openal-20050504".
(dependency required by "dev-games/simgear-0.3.9" [ebuild])

Perhalps it is possible the just to update the dependency in simgear?

After manually unmerging ~media-libs/openal-20050504, the dependency in "simgear" magically vanished, und "simgear" suddenly was very happy with the 0.0.8 version.

Sorry for reporting this bug too early; however "casual users" which do not know about manually fixing such conflicts may still be affected by it.

Well, you actually caught everything while I was still working on it.

I've made simgear no longer accept the older openal, which will force a "downgrade" of openal.

Sorry for the confusion.

OK then - thanks Chris. Closing the bug.
