As already reported at I'm having this weird behaviour.

Comment 1 Jeremy Olexa (darkside) (RETIRED) archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2011-05-18 16:54:37 UTC
That output looks surprisingly odd. My first impression is a portage bug.

% qlist ffmpeg|grep
% qlist chromium|grep

So, I highly doubt that the packages *really* need /usr/lib64/chromium-browser/ instead of /usr/lib64/

Anyway, I can't reproduce with ~arch portage. :(
Comment 2 Andrea Franceschini 2011-05-18 17:03:36 UTC
(In reply to comment #1)

I can confirm that I get quite a similar output:

$ qlist ffmpeg|grep

$ qlist chromium|grep
Comment 3 Jeremy Olexa (darkside) (RETIRED) archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2011-05-18 17:07:14 UTC
What about "ldd" on some binaries that portage claim need chromium? Can you prove or disprove that portage is correct/incorrect?

$ ldd /usr/bin/blender
[...] => /usr/lib/ (0xb72b6000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb6781000)

Here's just (possibly part of) the relevant output. I think Portage is incorrect.
Comment 5 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2011-05-18 18:14:52 UTC
Please try to reproduce with portage-2.2.0_alpha34, since it has lots of preserve-libs fixes, including bug 286714.

This effectively solved the problem, thanks.
