Description Alex Weiss 2007-11-17 06:04:51 UTC
Recently when doing and emerge -uD world, the package dev-lang/R will want to be upgraded to 2.2.1-r1 and then after a later emerge --sync it will want to be downgraded again. This has happened several times, so I imagine there's a circular dependency of some sort.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.emerge --sync
2.emerge -uD world

Actual Results:  
It wishes to either upgrade to R-2.2.1-r1 or downgrade to R-2.2.1 depending on which is presently installed

Expected Results:  
Not constantly cycle between the two versions of R

Post the actual emerge output both on upgrade and downgrade. Cannot help without any information available, sorry.
Comment 2 Alex Weiss 2007-11-17 09:39:43 UTC
What happens is that if I type in emerge -uDp world it says:

[ebuild     U ] dev-lang/R-2.2.1-r1 [2.2.1]

Later, after emerging this, and, I think, emerge --synch'ing, I get this when I emerge -uDp world.

[ebuild     U ] dev-lang/R-2.2.1 [2.2.1-r1]

Is this what you were looking for?

No, not really. We need to know which package is causing this and you didn't post any context whatsoever.
