Description Davide Cendron (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-06-27 09:52:37 UTC
I've actually a stable 3.5.5 KDE installation (using split ebuilds). I want to switch to newer unstable versions (>=3.5.6).
So i put all KDE packages in a file under /etc/portage/package.keywords/. But i've this problem:

# emerge -pDNu world

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:
[ebuild     U ] kde-base/kdesktop-3.5.6-r2 [3.5.5-r1]
[ebuild     U ] kde-base/kdebase-kioslaves-3.5.6-r1 [3.5.5-r1]
[blocks B     ] <kde-base/kdesktop-3.5.6-r1 (is blocking kde-base/kdebase-kioslaves-3.5.6-r1)

[blocks B     ] <kde-base/kdesktop-3.5.6-r1 (is blocking kde-base/kdebase-kioslaves-3.5.6-r1)

Same thing if i try to upgrade from 3.5.5 to 3.5.7.

I've found the source of all evils: in kdebase-kioslaves-3.5.6-r1 there's that block ( DEPEND=!<kde-base/kdesktop-3.5.6-r1). Masking this specific version of kdebase-kioslaves resolves the problem (and unmasking later after a successfull upgrade).

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Be sure to have a KDE 3.5.5 installation (using split ebuilds)
2. Unmask 3.5.6 or 3.5.7 KDE packages
3. run "emerge -pDNuv world"

Actual Results:  
Emerge fails because there's a blocked packages

<kde-base/kdesktop-3.5.6-r1 (is blocking kde-base/kdebase-kioslaves-3.5.6-r1)

Expected Results:  
emerge should upgrade world without problems

Comment 1 Davide Cendron (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-06-27 09:56:12 UTC
Another comment: even if a user can bypass this problem through masking/umasking of =kde-base/kdebase-kioslaves-3.5.6-r1, i think that some thing must be done to make the KDE upgrade process as smooth as possible
Comment 2 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-06-27 11:14:12 UTC
So unmask kde-base/kdebase-kioslaves properly (i.e. the 3.5.7 version).
Comment 3 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-06-27 11:14:57 UTC
And the same goes for kde-base/kdesktop and whatever else.
Comment 4 Carsten Lohrke (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-06-27 12:20:36 UTC
Davide, the blocker is purposefully there, as you run into file collisions, when not unmerging the old kdesktop ebuild first (given you run your system with FEATURES+=collision-protect). So the upgrade process actually is as smooth as possible. And from a dev I'd think it's not wrong to expect to lookup why a blocker is placed on his own in the first place, instead filing an invalid bug, btw...

(In reply to comment #2)
> So unmask kde-base/kdebase-kioslaves properly (i.e. the 3.5.7 version).

Solution is correct, but the comment is really pointless, Jacub.

Comment 5 Martin Tsachev 2007-08-15 09:16:21 UTC
How do I upgrade KDE from 3.5.0 to 3.5.7 without unmerging packages first, I need KDE on the box. I tried to edit the ebuild but it wouldn't install now:

[shark s0 12:09 | ~/bin]$ sudo emerge -pv kdesktop

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

refer to the Gentoo Handbook.
(dependency required by "kde-base/konqueror-3.5.7-r2" [ebuild])

[shark s0 12:09 | ~/bin]$ sudo emerge -pv --force kdesktop
usage: emerge [options]

emerge: error: no such option: --force

Masking either kdesktop or kde-kioslaves or both doesn't help.

Comment 6 Tobias Heinlein (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-08-16 13:29:33 UTC
When editing the ebuild the checksums of the file change. That's all the error says. Running `ebuild /usr/portage/kde-base/kdebase-kioslaves/kdebase-kioslaves-3.5.7-r1.ebuild digest` should solve that. Although what you are planning is pointless as carlo already pointed out -- please read his comment. You will have to unmerge at least ksync and kdesktop. Please see
