Description nicky 2006-10-27 08:24:16 UTC
I tried to install it, and it failed becuase of the above. Even though automake 1.10 was masked.

Already depends on it; emerge --sync.
Comment 2 nicky 2006-11-03 06:12:59 UTC
From the ebuild (/usr/portage/media-libs/smpeg/smpeg-0.4.4-r8.ebuild) :

        opengl? (
                virtual/glu )
        gtk? ( =x11-libs/gtk+-1.2* )
        X? (

Doesn't look like it has to me.

inherit eutils toolchain-funcs autotools

Do some research on how it works, thanks.

Doesn't WANT_AUTOMAKE="latest" just mean use the latest AUTOMAKE that's installed?
Surely, if it needs a SPECIFIC version of a package, that's what a dependancy is for.

Go read the autotools.eclass, thanks. Don't reopen this bug.

Closed, it works just fine.
