When emerging gkrellmwireless, it gets installed from x11-plugins, where it is
located, but if I do emerge gkrellmwireless -Cp, it wants to remove: net-
wireles/gkrellmwireless , which doesn't exist.
I suspect the gkrellm-plugins ebuild to cause this, but I'm not sure.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge gkrellmwireless -p
2. emerge gkrellmwireless
3. emerge gkrellmwireless -Cp
4. emerge gkrellmwireless -C
Watch the errors when unemerging.
unemerged gkrellmwireless from x11-plugins instead of net-wireless.
I hope somebody else that me is able to reproduce this, so it can get fixed,
since it is trivial, but still VERY annoying.
This is wierd:
# qpkg -q net-wireless/gkrellmwireless
DEPENDED ON BY:
The wierd thing is, then I look in the ebuild for gkrellm-plugins, it points to x11-plugins/gkrellmwireless and not net-wireless/gkrellmwireless .
I really have no idea about why portage wants it to be in there.
seems like it's a portage bug
A temporary fix it to symlink /usr/portage/net-wireless/gkrellmwireless to /usr/portage/x11-plugins/gkrellmwireless .
That makes portage behave correct, but it is not useable as a permanent fix.
In what category is it in /var/db/pkg and /var/cache/edb/dep ?
is this still an issue ?
