Description Wolfgang Schipper 2012-09-17 08:29:27 UTC
After emerging app-portage/ufed-0.40.1 and starting ufed I will get errormessages.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.emerge app-portage/ufed
Actual Results:  
After starting ufed I got the following errormessages:
/etc/make.profile is not a symlink
Compilation failed in require at /usr/sbin/ufed line 9.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/sbin/ufed line 9.

Expected Results:  
working, no errors

I think the problem is that /make.profile was moved to /etc/portage.

The following command will help as a workarround:
ln -s ../usr/portage/profiles/default/linux/x86/10.0 /etc/make.profile

# ufed
/etc/make.profile is not a symlink
Compilation failed in require at /usr/sbin/ufed line 9.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/sbin/ufed line 9.
Comment 2 Jan Vesely 2012-09-17 12:47:33 UTC
I hit this bug too. It appeared after:
and moving make.profile to the new location. (or a new install)
ufed should be updated to use new locaiton instead of the old one.
