Description Petteri Räty (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-06-29 16:39:50 UTC
19:33 < Betelgeuse> zmedico: Shouldn't depclean not allow removing libs that are linked against with the new framework?
19:34 < Betelgeuse> zmedico: For some reason I have bins like mv and id linked against libselinux which just got cleaned by depclean
19:35 < zmedico> right, that's a bug. I should fix that soon.
19:37 < Betelgeuse> zmedico: is it on file?
19:37 < zmedico> no, not yet
19:38 < zmedico> feel free to file one if you like :)
19:39 < zmedico> I've had it on my todo list for a couple weeks now but didn't get to it yet
19:39 < zmedico> I should just get it over with soon

This is fixed in 2.2_rc2.
Comment 2 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2011-05-14 08:58:59 UTC
In coming releases, the emerge --depclean-lib-check option will now be ignored when FEATURES=preserve-libs is enabled, since any libraries that have consumers will simply be preserved when the providing packages are unmerged (as requested in bug 286714).
