Description Jeremy Olexa (darkside) (RETIRED) archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2009-03-24 17:01:51 UTC
As discussed in irc, zmedico says that this case will not be hard to recognize and fix. So, here is the portage output:

So, the problem is obvious. Since xfce4-settings-4.6.0 fails to merge, then xfce-mcs-plugins-4.4.3 isn't unmerged anymore. But shouldn't the depgraph just be pruned off and the other stuff (qt*, git, etc) be compliled still?
Comment 1 Jeremy Olexa (darkside) (RETIRED) archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2009-03-25 15:22:30 UTC
In a similar fashion --keep-going, does not keep going if the failure results in a broken depgraph. Here it would be nice to prune off that part of the graph too.

As solar said, This is what I would expect to happen:
10:07 < solar> more like remove the leaf of deps that caused the failure.

Instead we get an exit condition and this output:

 * One or more packages are either masked or have missing dependencies:
 * 
 *   ~x11-libs/qt-gui-4.5.0[qt3support] pulled in by:
 *     ('installed', '/', 'x11-libs/qt-core-4.5.0', 'nomerge')
 * 
 * The resume list contains packages that are either masked or have
 * unsatisfied dependencies. Please restart/continue the operation
 * manually, or use --skipfirst to skip the first package in the list and
 * any other packages that may be masked or have missing dependencies.
 * 
 * The following package has failed to build or install:
 * 
 *      ('ebuild', '/', 'x11-libs/qt-gui-4.5.0', 'merge')

This is a separate issue from the blockers thing. There's already some code that's supposed to prune off the broken part of the depgraph, so I need to figure out why it didn't work in this case.
Comment 3 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2009-03-25 17:30:59 UTC
The issue from comment #1 seems seems to have been triggered by those the solved blockers in your merge list:

It doesn't properly prune off installed packages with broken deps in this case. The installed packages get pulled into the graph when it's checking reverse deps to make sure that it doesn't uninstall anything that's needed.
