Description Joel 2012-06-15 21:26:54 UTC
If I use "-i USE" with eselect-, I get a lot of no such file or directory errors. My /etc/portage/make.profile only contains a parent file. The /etc/portage/make.profile and its content is created with "eselect profile add XX". 

Reproducible: Always

/etc/portage/make.profile/parent file

It's the only content inside of make.profile

output of euse -i gtk

No existe el fichero o el directorio -> No such file or directory. Moreover, euse command hangs and never ends.
Comment 3 Paul Varner (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2012-06-18 19:57:32 UTC
That's because of bug 414961 where support to add ':' as shorthand for the parent directory was added.  As noted in that enhancement request, that feature breaks euse.

As of right now, euse has not been updated for that feature enhancement to work correctly.

euse patch

The following patch should fix euse to support the colon characters in the parent files.  Please test.
