Description Javier Quinteros 2008-01-17 16:45:22 UTC
After adding the keyword "es" to the variable LINGUAS and runnning

emerge -uD world

a file collision was detected. The filename is /usr/share/man/es/man1/mc.1.bz2 and the result from running

portageq owners / /usr/share/man/es/man1/mc.1.bz2



Reproducible: Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Add the keyword "es" to LINGUAS.
2.Run emerge -uD world

Actual Results:  
* Messages for package app-i18n/man-pages-es-1.55-r1:

 * This package will overwrite one or more files that may belong to other
 * packages (see list below). Add "collision-protect" to FEATURES in
 * make.conf if you would like the merge to abort in cases like this. You
 * can use a command such as `portageq owners / <filename>` to identify
 * the installed package that owns a file. If portageq reports that only
 * one package owns a file then do NOT file a bug report. A bug report is
 * only useful if it identifies at least two or more packages that are
 * known to install the same file(s). If a collision occurs and you can
 * not explain where the file came from then you should simply ignore the
 * collision since there is not enough information to determine if a real
 * problem exists. Please do NOT file a bug report at
 * unless you report exactly which two packages
 * install the same file(s). Once again, please do NOT file a bug report
 * unless you have completely understood the above message.
 * Detected file collision(s):
 *      /usr/share/man/es/man1/mc.1.bz2
 * If you want to read these man-pages properly you need to replace
 * the following line in /etc/man.conf:
 * NROFF           /usr/bin/nroff -Tascii -c -mandoc
 * With:
 * NROFF           /usr/bin/groff -Tutf8 -mandoc 

Expected Results:  
Nothing in particular. Maybe only the last comment is OK, considering that is related to the unicode capabilities and not to the file collision.

(Hopefully) fixed in CVS now. Thanks.

Maybe the revision should have been bumped on app-i18n/man-pages-es for this change.  I ran into this because I must have installed man-pages-es before the change, so the file was still there when I just recently tried to install mc (and got the collision).
