Description Jeremy Olexa (darkside) (RETIRED) archtester gentoo-dev Security 2009-03-09 12:55:49 UTC
%% emerge --version
Portage (default/linux/amd64/2008.0, gcc-4.1.2, glibc-2.8_p20080602-r1, x86_64)

When the PORTAGE_TMPDIR fills up, --keep-going doesn't have expected output. portage fails and doesn't say which packages failed to merge. The output should be fixed here to say which packages failed because after all that output, the user gets the impression that it finished successfully.

Comment 1 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2009-03-09 19:16:39 UTC
It will be a lot of work to wrap all of the places that can raise IOError like that. OTOH, it's pretty easy to ensure that the elog mod_echo module doesn't show it's stuff when an abnormal exception triggers exit with a traceback like this.
Comment 2 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2009-03-10 02:13:14 UTC
It's fixed in svn r12814 to show the traceback after the mod_echo output.
Comment 3 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2009-03-10 09:33:37 UTC
This is fixed in 2.2_rc24 which is in package.mask. I'll close this bug when it's also released in
Comment 4 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2009-03-13 20:48:29 UTC
This is released in
