Description Ronald 2009-12-22 18:04:50 UTC
Every version of libsoup contains the string:

PDEPEND="gnome? ( ~net-libs/${PN}-gnome-${PV} )"

I am a total noob in this, but I think that PDEPEND does not exist lol...

This caused my rhythmbox merge to fail :)

If I'm wrong, then libsoup-gnome should simply be added to rhythmbox as a dependency...

So shouldn't it be RDEPEND or just plain DEPEND?

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Sync portage tree
2. Make sure libsoup-gnome is not installed
3. emerge -v rhythmbox will fail because libsoup-gnome is not installed

Actual Results:  
Emerge fails

Expected Results:  
Emerge succeeds

PDEPEND is a valid dependency type [1]. Please attach the build.log and emerge --info.

Comment 2 Ronald 2009-12-23 08:47:23 UTC
Ah, yes will do. I'm currently re-emerging everything again so it's going to take a while before I have the log again. Gimme a day :)
