Description Jan Hrabe 2008-02-10 18:49:45 UTC
The update wants to pull pilot-link-0.12.3:

emerge -uDpv world

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating world dependencies        ... done!
[ebuild     U ] app-pda/pilot-link-0.12.3 [0.11.8] USE="perl png python readline usb%* (-bluetooth) -debug% -java -threads% (-tk%)" 0 kB

However, if it is allowed to do so, revdep-rebuild subsequently reverses 
the pilot link to an older version 0.11.8 needed for some apps:

equery depends =pilot-link-0.11.8

dev-libs/libmal-0.31 (~app-pda/pilot-link-0.11.8)

This is the config info:

Comment 1 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-02-10 19:39:00 UTC
I don't really understand why you have dev-libs/libmal-0.31 installed when 0.44 is stable.
Comment 2 Jan Hrabe 2008-02-10 20:57:26 UTC
That would be because despite doing emerge -uD world every few days
or so, this library did not get updated (or possibly revdep-rebuild
may have put it back).  I do not have anything related to libmal
in the /etc/portage/package.* files.

Now I emerged libmal and pilot-link individually.  That worked fine but
resulted for some reason in a new error when compiling jpilot:

Bug 209068 for jpilot stabilization; closing this one. you should run emerge --depclean to get rid of useless cruft. :)
