Description Scott Taylor (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-09-25 22:53:31 UTC
It appears that the list of packages to be installed and their dependencies are
being calculated at the beginning of an emerge without taking into account
virtuals that would get applied during the process. I noticed this when trying
to build qmail (which is a virtual/mta therefore eliminating the need to build
the ssmtp package) at the same time as vcrom (which requires a virtual/mta).
I've seen  quirky behavior when installing groups of packages before, but at
least in this case, i knew what i expected to happen during the emerge.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:

Actual Results:  
(one command: "emerge metalog qmail vcron")
1064554086:  >>> emerge (1 of 11) dev-libs/libpcre-4.2-r1 to /
1064554199:  >>> emerge (2 of 11) app-admin/metalog-0.7-r1 to /
1064554292:  >>> emerge (3 of 11) sys-apps/ucspi-tcp-0.88-r7 to /
1064554338:  >>> emerge (4 of 11) net-mail/dot-forward-0.71-r1 to /
1064554365:  >>> emerge (5 of 11) net-mail/checkpassword-0.90-r1 to /
1064554385:  >>> emerge (6 of 11) net-mail/cmd5checkpw-0.22-r1 to /
1064554396:  >>> emerge (7 of 11) sys-apps/daemontools-0.76-r3 to /
1064554431:  >>> emerge (8 of 11) net-mail/qmail-1.03-r10 to /
1064554560:  >>> emerge (9 of 11) net-mail/mailbase-0.00-r6 to /
1064554573:  >>> emerge (10 of 11) net-mail/ssmtp-2.60.4 to /
(at which point i cancel the emerge and issue an "emerge vcron" by itself. This
time the virtual/mta from qmail is acknowledged so ssmtp is not built.)
1064554605:  >>> emerge (1 of 1) sys-apps/vcron-3.0.1-r1 to /
