Description tju 2003-04-17 15:14:28 UTC
ufed attempts to open '/usr/portage/profiles/use.desc' (line 93) instead of
using the value of PORTDIR variable given in '/etc/make.profile/make.defaults'
or '/etc/make.globals' or /etc/make.conf'

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. move your portage tree to an other directory than /usr/portage (e.g.
2. insert a line 'PORTDIR=/var/lib/portage' into /etc/make.conf
3. call ufed

Actual Results:  
Error message: "couldn't open /usr/portage/profiles/use.desc"

Expected Results:  
open $PORTDIR/profiles/use.desc without error

ok, this will go into the reworking of ufed I'm undertaking.
For a temporary fix, open up the ufed script
and replace the path '/usr/portage/' with your custom path.
Comment 2 Fred Van Andel (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-04-26 23:02:14 UTC
fixed with ufed 0.3. 
Just dont try PORTDIR="${base}/portage" 
That will be fixed with 0.31
