Description Steven Moix 2008-12-22 11:07:26 UTC
En "emerge gnome" metapackage install crashes when it comes to compile the gnome-user-docs package. It relies on libxml2 which isn't installed as a dependency.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Gentoo minimal CD 2008.0 on Alpha (probably on other architectures too)
2. Run emerge gnome

Actual Results:  
emerge crashes during the gnome-user-docs compilation

Expected Results:  
Compile successffully

running "emerge libxml2" before the installation solves the problem. It's probably a build require dependency issue. Put libxml2 as a gnome-user-docs requirement solves the problem.

please actually post useful information, emerge --info and build.log for example.
