Description Joe Peterson (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-09-14 00:11:34 UTC
An issue that was fixed today in portage was ignoring a missing module called "freebsd", which would later cause a seemingly unrelated error upon installing certain system packages.  This would happen after a python upgrade before python-updater is run.  The fix will now cause portage to bomb out when it encounters the missing module, alerting the user to actions required.

Because of this, python-updater now should pass FEATURES="ignore-missing-freebsd-module" to emerge in order to bypass the bomb out.

See bug 192341

(note that passing this feature on older portages is harmless)

That revision was reverted.
Comment 2 Joe Peterson (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-09-16 16:44:33 UTC
Yes, other better solutions have been proposed, so canceling this bug for now.
