While it shouldn't... *Nothing* should own this file; if it belongs to app-arch/alien it means that ebuild is broken and has overwritten this file. It should use fixlocalpod from perl-app.eclass to prevent such behavior.

Comment 2 Thomas Raschbacher gentoo-dev 2007-04-13 09:47:47 UTC
i'll have a look asap (i don't use alien much myself anymore - though i am of course still interested in it and to keep it working ;))
Comment 3 Thomas Raschbacher gentoo-dev 2007-05-03 15:54:09 UTC
just to let you know that i did not forget about it, just was quite busy with work 
Comment 4 Thomas Raschbacher gentoo-dev 2007-05-13 22:40:41 UTC
Added version 8.66 to portage. uses perl-app.
please test (i don't want to change the other existing ebuilds before someone else can confirm this works ok - i don't have a lot of rpm,deb,.. packages around and don't have the time to do extensive tests on it unfortunately)
Comment 5 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2007-05-14 07:17:10 UTC
I get an access violation:

Comment 6 Thomas Raschbacher gentoo-dev 2007-05-14 07:55:26 UTC
hmm strange .. it emerged fine here last night...
maybe some update in the eclass. will check.

btw .. please set your locale to english before posting error messages ;) (in this case i can guess the message but that's only cuz it's very simle ;))
Comment 7 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-05-14 08:35:11 UTC
Well, all was that needed to fix the original bug was adding the inherit and sticking fixlocalpod to src_install. Just do it this way if the perl way fails. :)
Comment 8 Thomas Raschbacher gentoo-dev 2007-05-14 10:39:48 UTC
a little bit of 'sed-magic' (yes i could have used perl but i'm more comfortable with sed for small things like this ;)) solved the problem :D
