Disclaimer: this bug has been filed in a semi-automated manner.
When emerging the package media-plugins/live-2012.01.07, the following elog messages are displayed:
* If you are upgrading from a version prior to live-2008.02.08
* Please make sure to rebuild applications built against live
* like vlc or mplayer. live may have had ABI changes and live
* support might be broken.
Such messages should only be displayed when the package is upgraded from an old enough package (and possibly for new installs).
These situations can be checked in the ebuild as follows:
if has_version '<media-plugins/live-1.0'; then
Or, if the message should also be displayed for new installs:
if !has_version 'media-plugins/live' || has_version '<media-plugins/live-1.0'; then
Remember to replace 1.0 with the right version number.
See the tracker bug 440214 for more details.
it could probably be dropped entirely, its 4 years old...
Yes, I also think so.
actually, this warning is gone in ~arch version, so nothing to do, closing as invalid, it'll reach stable when we'll stabilise a newer version.
