Description Richard Yao (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2012-02-28 19:22:29 UTC
I have tried using `genlop -c` on Linux, Mac OS X and Solaris. It will always report "no working merge found", regardless of what emerge says.
Comment 1 Jeroen Roovers (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2012-02-28 19:34:29 UTC
It's been like this for ages. :)
Comment 2 Paul Varner (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2013-01-18 22:22:01 UTC
Can I see the FEATURES line from emerge --info from affected hosts?
Comment 3 Richard Yao (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2013-02-01 17:12:24 UTC
Here is FEATURES from ~sparc64-solaris:

Comment 4 Jack 2020-08-09 19:19:24 UTC
Most of the time, I do not see this problem, but on occasion, it starts doing this part way through an emerge, and in that case, it always gives that response until I start a new emerge, when it reverts to the normal output.  This is with genlop 0.30.10-r2.

from "emerge --info" on an amd64 box (mostly stable, a few ~)

I don't use genlop myself.  Tools-portage team is mostly myself and Zac, but is open to fixes from any Gentoo developer.   We would appreciate any fixes you can provide and will gladly apply them if they check out.
