Description SpanKY gentoo-dev 2010-09-24 18:39:01 UTC
since all of the gcc package is world readable, this should work fine as a non-root user and non-portage group:
$ PKGDIR=$PWD/pkgs quickpkg sys-devel/gcc

instead, we get:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/sbin/quickpkg", line 241, in <module>
    retval = quickpkg_main(options, args, eout)
  File "/usr/sbin/quickpkg", line 78, in quickpkg_main
  File "/usr/lib64/portage/pym/portage/dbapi/", line 1168, in lockdb
    self._lock_vdb = lockdir(self.dbroot)
  File "/usr/lib64/portage/pym/portage/", line 32, in lockdir
    return lockfile(mydir,wantnewlockfile=1)
  File "/usr/lib64/portage/pym/portage/", line 77, in lockfile
    raise PermissionDenied(func_call)
portage.exception.PermissionDenied: open('/var/db/.pkg.portage_lockfile')

and no, i do not have a "/var/db/.pkg.portage_lockfile" for whatever reason
