I have at least one program that cares about what library a library was built
with that it needs...
specifically gnet needing to be linked against glib2 instead of glib1.2
emerging gnet will make it go with glib1.2 unless the ebuild is modified or a
specific environment variable is set.
So, how does one call another ebuild from an ebuild? If it is mearly typing it
on a line, I must ask is this safe?
or should I just merge the ebuilds together and recompile gnet (or any other
package that it matters what it was linked with) with my ebuild?
and if this is explained, maybe include some english with the explanation?
I ran into this problem with my Overnet Core Controller ebuild (its floating arround on the forums somewhere..)
anyway... yeah i think it was glib1.2 and glib2 that was causing the problems... I had to edit the ebuild and re emerge the other thing...
I suppose one could just "merge" the ebuilds together... compile the requirement, then compile the goodie... then somehow emerge the requirement again with it's normal settings...
This should be specified... maybe like this
to say that it has to be built with glib2 instead of 1.2 or something..
use a colon or some other symbol in the use flags...
then portage should know to re emerge the file after its done...
and the glib package would have to accept being passed a build value...
I'm tired... and my system is... not as broken as it has been... (my girlfriend is going to be mad at me... again... for attempting to fix my gentoo box)
Marking as a dupe of 2272, since that functionality is how this would be implemented.
