Description barrie backhurst 2006-08-16 04:17:43 UTC
I have just run emerge --sync and when I do emerge -puDNt world, I get the following list

sempron2600 ~ # emerge -puDNt world

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

It shows Gimp initiates a downgrade of cairo, while later in the listing cairo is upgraded. I tried adding Gimp to package.keywords, but it made no difference. Removing cairo from package.keywords doesn't appear to compromise my system, so I have proceeded to do that.

As cairo doesn't appear to be slotted, I assume this is a bug in portage, apologies if I am incorrect.

Comment 1 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-08-16 04:24:49 UTC
May I ask why are you mixing latest unstable cairo w/ stable ebuilds?  Upgrade dev-python/pycairo to latest unstable and you won't have the cycle.

It was a dependancy a while back, for an ebuild I cannot remember. I have now removed it from package.keywords and am currently updating world.

I just had not experienced this previously and felt I should report it, in case it was significant.
Comment 3 Paul Bredbury 2006-08-16 09:35:32 UTC
Why has this been marked invalid? What valid reason is there for Portage to upgrade a package *more* than once in a single run, when the package isn't slotted?
