Description Avuton Olrich 2007-02-17 23:06:49 UTC
When installing a new Gentoo distribution I forgot to add the xinerama USE flag, so I thought I could just add it and run --newuse. When running --newuse /none/ of the kde-meta packages were selected for reemerge, though most, if not all use it.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set xinerama use flag to off
2. emerge all kde-meta packages
3. Set xinerama use flag to on
4. emerge --newuse world (or kde-meta for that matter)

Actual Results:  
Got a few unrelated packages.

Expected Results:  
Expected to begin reemerging of all (necessary) kde-meta packages

# pquery --raw --has-use=xinerama | grep kde- | grep meta

Doesn't seem like "most", pretty much seems like none, more like...
Comment 2 Avuton Olrich 2007-02-17 23:25:00 UTC
Look again

sbh@rocket ~ % grep xinerama /mnt/linear/portage/eclass/kde.eclass
IUSE="debug xinerama elibc_FreeBSD"
        xinerama? ( x11-proto/xineramaproto )"
RDEPEND="xinerama? ( x11-libs/libXinerama )"
                                myconf="$myconf --with-x --enable-mitshm $(use_with xinerama) --with-qt-dir=${QTDIR} --enable-mt --with-qt-libraries=${QTDIR}/$(get_libdir)"

Then, another way you can verify rather than invaliding people's bugs at random is to do a -pv on any kde package.
Comment 3 Avuton Olrich 2007-02-17 23:25:27 UTC
this is a bug.
Comment 4 Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-02-17 23:25:41 UTC
Use -D.
Comment 5 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-02-17 23:27:05 UTC
What's said above. -meta does *not* have xinerama use flag.
Comment 6 Avuton Olrich 2007-02-17 23:29:11 UTC
Aah, ok, Thanks Diego, no thanks to Jakub for the shotgun troubleshooting.

This is not a support forum, move to or #gentoo with such stuff please.
