Description Daniel Santos 2007-03-08 22:41:33 UTC
Running crossdev-0.9.18 when you don't already have a package.mask file causes crossdev to create a directory there instead, to which it adds a file named cross-<the target you specified> that contains the masks.  emerge later spits out some complaints about this.  If this is a valid mechanism for specifying masks, it is not documented and should be added to the emerge man/info pages.

Reproducible: yes

Comment 1 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-03-08 22:50:52 UTC
There's nothing wrong with the directory.

*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of bug 170030 ***
Comment 2 Daniel Santos 2007-03-08 23:04:54 UTC
If this is normal behavior, please don't mark it as a dupe, either INVAL it or move it into the emerge docs bucket.  I'll let you decide, but it's not the same as the other bug.
Comment 3 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-03-08 23:09:08 UTC
If you can't live with duplicate, you'll get INVALID.

> --- Invalid atom in /etc/portage/package.mask:

is clearly a duplicate of the other bug.
Comment 4 Daniel Santos 2007-03-09 18:15:52 UTC
No, it is NOT a duplicate.  Bug 170030 has to do with data that is added to the package.mask.  If emerge works just fine with having a directory named /etc/portage/package.mask/ that contains files with the mask information, then this report IS invalid and should be marked as such.  Please be accurate.

In your defense, I also don't go through 100 bug reports a day.  And again, this information should be added to the emerge man/info pages.
Comment 5 Daniel Santos 2007-03-09 18:22:18 UTC
oops, double invalid.  This behavior is documented in the portage manpage, my bad.
