Description CJ Kucera 2003-09-23 06:21:13 UTC
It seems that cdrtools and dvdrtools both install a bunch of binaries in the
same location, which can lead to package conflicts.  For instance, I've had
cdrtools installed for some time, but I recently bought a DVD burner, so I
emerged dvdrtools.  The dvdrtools version of "readcd" overwrote the one from
cdrtools, and now when I try to launch xcdroast, I get the following:

** WARNING **: Invalid readcd version 1.11a15 found.
        Expecting at least version 1.11a34
        Start xcdroast with the -n option to override (not recommended!)

Two packages really shouldn't install binaries to the same location; there
should probably be a block or something on the two packages.  The versions
installed on my system:


(some of those are a bit out-of-date now, but it looks like little has changed
in the ebuilds.)  Here are the binaries which seem to be in conflict:


Reproducible: Always

You can try a newer version of the cdrtools with the dvdr-USE-flag set.

Furthermore I'll change the dvdrtools-package so that it provides virtual/cdrtools.
 Then xcdroast can use any of both tools.

Changes commitet.  May you test, if this is still an issue?
Comment 3 Lars Weiler (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-09-03 07:41:27 UTC
Closing, as the handling of cdrtools and dvdrtools has changed.  There is now a cdrtools-virtual and one of the both apps will be declared as a blocker.
