Description Martin Hierling 2006-10-02 01:50:26 UTC

following behavior:

www etc # emerge -pk mysql

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

Calculating dependencies... done!
[binary     U ] dev-db/mysql-4.1.20 [4.0.27]

www etc # emerge -p mysql

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

Calculating dependencies... done!
[ebuild   R   ] dev-db/mysql-4.0.27  

www etc # grep mysql /etc/portage/package.mask 

according to package.mask i would expect on both emerge calls only version 4.0.27 be emerged. Even if there is a higher version as binary package.

regards Martin

Comment 1 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2006-10-02 02:41:57 UTC
It seems to mask correctly for me.  Are you sure that you don't have mysql in /etc/portage/package.unmask also?  Try this please:

grep -r mysql /etc/portage
Comment 2 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2006-10-02 20:50:40 UTC
Oh, I know why.  It's because you don't have a matching mysql-4.1.20.ebuild in the tree, so emerge is assuming that it's not masked.  I'll see what I can do...
Comment 3 Martin Hierling 2006-10-10 11:16:51 UTC
sorry for needing so long:

# grep -r mysql /etc/portage

but you have figured it out. So any fixes upcoming in portage?

regards Martin
Comment 4 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2006-10-10 11:23:31 UTC
The masking check that we use for binary packages is a hack that uses the portage tree's visibility check.  We'll have to implement a new visibility check that works correctly for binary and installed packages.  Hopefully it will get fixed soon, but there are lots of competing bugs that need attention.
