Description Matthias Schwarzott gentoo-dev 2008-10-21 10:38:50 UTC
1. Before unmasking the new x264 and ffmpeg ebuilds I had
Installed that links against

2. Updating: portage did x264 first (for DEPEND of ffmpeg) and so updated the lib to
Portage kept for ffmpeg.

3. Updating ffmpeg: new ffmpeg provides, but old is kept for xine-lib linking against it.

4. emerge @preserved-rebuild

First failure: emerge does suggest to rebuild ffmpeg.
This should not be, as ffmpeg itself does not link against old x264, only the preserved libavcodec-lib does.

Second failure: After re-building xine-lib it removed old, but did not remove old

Comment 1 Davide Pesavento gentoo-dev 2008-10-23 12:27:43 UTC
I had the same problem with ffmpeg and x264 upgrade.

Moreover, portage keeps saying:

!!! existing preserved libs:
>>> package: media-libs/x264-0.0.20081006
 *  - /usr/lib64/
Use emerge @preserved-rebuild to rebuild packages using these libraries

but @preserved-rebuild is empty:

# emerge @preserved-rebuild
emerge: 'preserved-rebuild' is an empty set
emerge: no targets left after set expansion

This may confuse users a lot imho.
Comment 2 Davide Pesavento gentoo-dev 2008-11-07 20:34:43 UTC
This happened again, with portage-2.2_rc13 this time. The preserved-libs chain was more or less the same: x264 <- ffmpeg <- k3b (and many others, k3b was the last of them).

The result is that rc13 performed vastly better than rc12: the "second failure" outlined by zzam (recursive deletion of preserved libs) has been fixed! So the only remaining problem now is the "first failure", i.e. `emerge @preserved-rebuild` wants to rebuild ffmpeg when it's not necessary.

Created attachment 171153 [details, diff]
exclude preserved libs themselves when calculating consumers of preserved libs

If this patch is saved as /tmp/exclude_plibs.patch then it can be applied as follows:

 patch /usr/lib/portage/pym/portage/sets/ /tmp/exclude_plibs.patch
Comment 4 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2008-11-11 22:20:33 UTC
This is fixed in 2.2_rc14.
