Description Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-09-07 23:02:19 UTC
I guess the problem is distutils eclass; is this fixable? (Hopefully, also in stable series)

Comment 1 Arfrever Frehtes Taifersar Arahesis (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-09-07 23:18:14 UTC
It rather isn't possible to have working system without Python, so why does it matter whether sys-apps/file depends on Python?
Comment 2 Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-09-07 23:29:27 UTC
There's this nice thing called ROOT= .

Please do fix it.
Comment 3 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2009-09-08 02:04:40 UTC
pretty sure there is already a bug open about this.  at any rate, certainly not something to be fixed in file.
