Description John (EBo) David 2008-12-27 19:35:40 UTC
A recent upgrade triggered a rebuild of noatun-plugins-3.5.9 which failed.  The problem turned out to be that noatun-plugins-3.5.9.ebuild supports building without USE="arts", but the Makefiles/build-scripts still looks for the libarts library; which causes the build to fail.

to reproduce:

  build noatun-plugins on a system without arts (the entire system would need to be built this way so that the libarts library is not floating around)

Expected results:

  build failure


  add "arts" to the USE flags in /etc/make.conf and update the entire system

  EBo --

ps: please note that the "emerge --info" is provided *after* adding "arts" to the useflags...

Comment 1 Theo Chatzimichos (RETIRED) archtester gentoo-dev Security 2009-05-29 21:40:11 UTC
noatun-plugins depends on noatun which according to eclass depends always to arts. So it will pull arts-3.5.X and kdemutlimedia-arts-3.5.X, with the later failing if kdelibs is compiled without arts. But we plan to remove arts completely from tree, right after we strip it from kde3 applications that still use it. Then i'll have to change eclass and disable arts from all kde ebuilds, either misc or kde-base. So i won't fix it for now. Thanks
Comment 2 John (EBo) David 2009-05-29 22:17:00 UTC
ok.  Thanks for looking at this.  

Would it be reasonable, as a temporary fix, to add arts to DEPEND?  I see that the real fix will be a bit of a pain...
Comment 3 Theo Chatzimichos (RETIRED) archtester gentoo-dev Security 2009-05-29 22:19:47 UTC
to be honest i have the same problem in one of my machines and i'll try to find a workaround. i just want this bug closed because i don't want it to block kde3 stabilization (see tracker). i'll report back if i do anything. thanks for the understanding :)
Comment 4 John (EBo) David 2009-05-30 04:14:18 UTC
Thanks again Theo.  Do not worry on my concern -- I was able to work around the problem by simply including arts in the USE flags and rebuilding.  Best of luck on the kde3 stabilization.  

BTW, after reading the kde3 stabilization thread I see the issue.  Maybe a small test program/suite can be added to portage to check for deprecated situations and point the user to instructions on how to deal with updating the effected packages before actually updating portage (and effecting the eclasses, etc.).  As a note, the last time I had an issues with an old laptop which was not sync'ed for nearly a year had a fried ethernet jack and I am able to maintain it via sneakernet shuffling a thumbdrive.

Cheers ;-)

reopening to mark "FIXED"
Comment 6 Jonathan Callen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-10-17 09:27:04 UTC
This has been fixed in 3.5.10; 3.5.9 is no longer in the tree.
