Description Alexander Skwar 2007-08-31 10:15:39 UTC
--($:~)-- emerge -vpt hal

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

Calculating dependencies -
!!! Multiple versions within a single package slot have been 
!!! pulled into the dependency graph:

('ebuild', '/', 'sys-apps/parted-1.8.7', 'merge') pulled in by
  ('ebuild', '/', 'sys-apps/hal-', 'merge')

('ebuild', '/', 'sys-apps/parted-1.8.8', 'merge') pulled in by
  ('ebuild', '/', 'sys-apps/hal-', 'merge')

It may be possible to solve this problem by using package.mask to
prevent one of those packages from being selected. However, it is also
possible that conflicting dependencies exist such that they are
impossible to satisfy simultaneously. If such a conflict exists in the
dependencies of two different packages, then those packages can not be
installed simultaneously.

For more information, see MASKED PACKAGES section in the emerge man page
or refer to the Gentoo Handbook.

This doesn't look right.

Is this because of the following in the hal-

        disk-partition? ( >=sys-apps/parted-1.7.1                          
                        <=sys-apps/parted-1.8.7 )

Comment 1 Doug Goldstein gentoo-dev 2007-08-31 12:54:22 UTC
Firstly, you're on Portage when you should be on Secondly, the depends are correct. Since libparted does not have a stable API/ABI and it changes with every minor release, it requires patches to the HAL code to work with the new version. HAL has workarounds in the code from version 1.7.1 (inclusive) to version 1.8.7 (inclusive) so the depends are correct.

Portage people, how is this solved.
Comment 2 Alexander Skwar 2007-08-31 12:57:45 UTC
FWIW: The problem also exists in Portage
Comment 3 Andrew Gaffney (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-08-31 13:46:28 UTC
Just remove the >=sys-apps/parted-1.7.1 from the ebuild. The oldest version in the tree is 1.7.1-r1.

Dupe of bug #4315 as far as we are concerned.
Comment 5 Doug Goldstein gentoo-dev 2007-08-31 14:19:55 UTC
Made agaffney's suggested change.

Comment 7 Ryan Hill (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-03-26 03:19:51 UTC
this bug is back in hal-0.5.10 with parted-1.8.8 installed:

!!! Multiple versions within a single package slot have been
!!! pulled into the dependency graph:


  ('ebuild', '/', 'sys-apps/parted-1.8.7', 'merge') pulled in by
    ('installed', '/', 'sys-apps/hal-0.5.10', 'nomerge')

  ('installed', '/', 'sys-apps/parted-1.8.8', 'nomerge') (no parents)

Comment 8 Ryan Hill (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-03-26 03:54:49 UTC
and also with parted-1.8.7 installed:

!!! Multiple versions within a single package slot have been
!!! pulled into the dependency graph:


  ('installed', '/', 'sys-apps/parted-1.8.7', 'nomerge') pulled in by
    ('installed', '/', 'sys-apps/hal-0.5.10', 'nomerge')

  ('ebuild', '/', 'sys-apps/parted-1.8.8', 'merge') (no parents)

One of the following should solve it:

1) unmask a newer version of hal that's compatible with parted-1.8.8
2) correct the hal-0.5.10 deps to indicate compatibility with parted-1.8.8
3) mask parted-1.8.8 to prevent in from being pulled in

Comment 10 Ryan Hill (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-03-27 00:27:28 UTC
oh for sure, i personally know how to fix it (in this case masking parted-1.8.8 is the only choice).  i'm just pointing out to the gentopia folks that our users might be a little annoyed by the fact that it's currently impossible to do emerge -aD world on a system with hal-0.5.10 installed and the disk-partition USE flag enabled.
