Description Gwenn 2002-05-27 16:58:18 UTC
Admin scripts (such as mysql_setpermission) provided by MySQL require
dev-perl/DBI to run.
Comment 1 Donny Davies (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-06-08 22:21:20 UTC
It actually depends upon dev-perl/DBD-mysql, which itself depends
upon dev-perl/DBI and dev-db/mysql; a circular dependency.  I guess people 
should install dev-perl/DBD-mysql after they install mysql.. :/

Comment 2 Gwenn 2002-06-09 08:58:26 UTC
I didn't find how RDEPEND is managed by ebuild but if dev-perl/DBI is in the
running dependencies and not in the compile dependencies, it could be emerged
AFTER mysql is emerged and it would prevent circular dependency.
