Description Andrew John Hughes 2008-05-15 12:21:21 UTC
The new ebuild for kmail 3.5.9 depends on kdebase.  This causes problems if kdebase-meta and its dependencies are installed:

[nomerge      ] kde-base/kmail-3.5.9 [3.5.8] USE="crypt xinerama -arts -debug -kdeenablefinal"
[ebuild  N    ]  kde-base/kdebase-3.5.9-r3  USE="cups hal ieee1394 ldap openexr opengl pam samba xcomposite xinerama xscreensaver -arts -branding -debug -java -joystick -kdeenablefinal -kdehiddenvisibility (-lm_sensors) -logitech-mouse" 54 kB
[ebuild     U ]   kde-base/kdelibs-3.5.9-r4 [3.5.8-r3] USE="acl alsa avahi cups doc jpeg2k openexr spell tiff utempter xinerama -arts -bindist -branding -debug -fam -kdeenablefinal -kdehiddenvisibility -kerberos -legacyssl -lua" 15,204 kB                                                                                                        
[blocks B     ] kde-base/kreadconfig:3.5 (is blocking kde-base/kdebase-3.5.9-r3)
 and so on

Reproducible: Always

Comment 1 Carsten Lohrke (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-05-15 13:14:52 UTC
It doesn't. You have either don't have kdebase-kioslaves or kcontrol keyworded, masked one of them or synced in the middle of ppc64's stabilization spree. Please sync again in an hour or so and/or take a look at you local configuration.
Comment 2 Andrew John Hughes 2008-05-15 14:37:19 UTC
Resynced and this problem persists.  Something is broken somewhere as both kcontrol and kdebase-kioslaves are installed:

emerge -pv kdebase-kioslaves

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

Indeed the world update is also picking up kdebase-kioslaves, but marking it as  a new slot.

Again, related to kmail.

It shouldn't be possible to get a broken system when packages are being updated.  If KDE is being moved from ~ppc64 to ppc64, it should be done atomically.

Sorry, but that's not possible with the crap that is CVS.

Corsair's commit spree finished this night, so you shouldn't hit issues like this anymore. If you did read split ebuild documentation & still hit this issue, append emerge --tree output here, and reopen.

Comment 5 Carsten Lohrke (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-05-18 23:23:49 UTC
Well, it's not really the case that /nothing/ can be done about it. A plain cvs commit, bypassing repoman on kde-base/ is possible, just that you have to be very careful not to botch it. The one-by-one approach is quite annoying for our userbase, causing these issues for half a day...
Comment 6 Andrew John Hughes 2008-05-21 08:12:14 UTC
Thanks.  It does seem to have been an intermittent problem.  A sync yesterday has given a valid tree without altering anything else.
