Please post your `emerge --info' too. Also, please compare this problem with bug #222091.

Comment 4 Jeroen Roovers (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-07-04 15:59:37 UTC
Did you install recently? Did you emerge xinetd while you were still working in a chroot while you had booted the system from a Gentoo boot CD/DVD?
Comment 5 Florian Philipp 2008-07-04 16:02:57 UTC
Nope, this is a 1 year old system. I emerged xinetd just to have a look at it and now wanted to unmerge it again without having it in use for a single minute.

The change to the 2008-profile was a long time ago, as well.
Comment 6 Florian Philipp 2008-07-04 16:32:15 UTC
Both bugs Jeroen Roovers pointed to mention >bash-3.2_p20 so I switched to 3.2_p17 with no success.
On bug 222091 there is pam_mount mentioned as a possible correlation between two affected machines. I'm using pam_mount-0.41.

Please attach /var/db/pkg/sys-apps/xinetd-2.3.14/environment.bz2 to this bug too.

Comment 10 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2008-07-05 23:04:21 UTC
This might be a variant of bug 211833, but it also might be a bug in portage- environment handling. Could you test with >=portage- to see if
the problem is reproducible? If you remove the /var/db/pkg/sys-apps/xinetd-2.3.14/environment.bz2 then does the uninstall then complete successfully? Is the problem still reproducible if you reinstall the package and uninstall it again with >=portage-
Comment 11 Florian Philipp 2008-07-06 09:47:08 UTC
After removing /var/db/pkg/sys-apps/xinetd-2.3.14/environment.bz2 I can unmerge it successfully.

The bug is _not_ reproducible with =portage-
