Description Michael Siebecker 2003-06-06 05:29:46 UTC
I want to reopen bug since i'm not
using su.
When it outputs the errormessages during kdebase-3.1.2 installation, it seems
that it simply repeats over and over the same thing. So if you open another
console and create the missing directory, it will cleanly finish.
To confirm, i'm fully and only logged in as root when i do emerge.
Comment 1 Michael Siebecker 2003-06-06 05:58:19 UTC
Without verifying the code, my guess is that the ebuild tries
[ -d ~root/.kde/config ] || mkdir ~root/.kde/config
directly instead of
[ -d ~root/.kde ] || mkdir ~root/.kde
[ -d ~root/.kde/config ] || mkdir ~root/.kde/config

Can you attach some of the output error message.  I'm trying to find in our stuff where this 
may be happening, but it could be a kde source thing as well.

Hardly currently. It needs a complete scrub...
Comment 4 Caleb Tennis (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-06-23 20:25:58 UTC
Will wait for some error output before we know how to proceed.
