Description Carps 2010-02-05 19:34:03 UTC
Could some dev change the requirement of hellanzb to use app-arch/unrar-gpl instead of app-arch/unrar-3.8.5 as this will resolve a block, as hellanzb wants unrar-3.8.5 and other apps use unrar-gpl.

This causes a block to be thrown up

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Emerge hellanzb
Comment 1 Peter Gantner (a.k.a. nephros) 2010-02-07 19:20:27 UTC

app-arch/unrar-gpl cannot unpack any recent .rar files. It will also break portage unpack() if it is installed and used to unpack such a file.

You should uninstall -gpl for now and install app-arch/unrar or app-arch/rar instead.

Other apps (e.g. mplayer) should have deps like:
     || ( app-arch/unrar-gpl  app-arch/unrar app-arch/rar ) 
so should be fine if -gpl is missing.

Please reopen this bug report after arguing to the contrary of the position of comment #1 (which sounds plausible to me).
