Description Bernhard Hartleb 2008-10-09 06:57:34 UTC
usbutils have a runtime dependency on dev-libs/libusb.

I know this is a minor problem, but it would be nice to have it fixed.

Reproducible: Always
Comment 1 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2008-10-09 19:46:19 UTC
usbutils already depends on libusb, so i dont know what this bug is about
Comment 2 Bernhard Hartleb 2008-10-10 08:40:17 UTC
Ok, sorry for my vague explanation.

Your are right, usbutils already depends on libusb.
But usbutils also have a runtime dependency on libusb:

# ldd /usr/sbin/lsusb
        ... => /lib/ (0xf7f95000)

Which means that this line should be added to the ebuild, to get the depdendencies right:

An explanation for that can be found here:

I know this is anything but critical, so sorry for bothering you with that.

that line is actually not explicitly needed yet, but I put it in anyway.
Comment 4 Bernhard Hartleb 2008-10-12 19:02:43 UTC

I actually run into this while building a minimal gentoo system.
Hence, I tried to remove all buildtime deps but had no luck with this ebuild.

There are probably a lot of ebuilds with this little issue out there.
