Comment 1 Kaleb Pederson 2004-03-25 12:22:09 UTC
This one is similar to 41400 BTW, but given the age of that bug, I don't think it has been taken care of.
Comment 2 Marius Mauch (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-03-25 14:49:44 UTC
Please run `grep -r app-doc/ebook-gtk-2.0 /var/cache/edb /etc/portage /usr/local/portage`

Hello Kaleb,

The problem happens yet?

If so, can try this command?
# PORTDIR_OVERLAY="" emerge sync
Comment 5 Kaleb Pederson 2004-04-09 23:11:08 UTC
The problem disappeared after I did my next rsync.  The sync itself was working it was the computations after the sync that caused it to die.

I verified that I had nothing in PORTDIR_OVERLAY related to that ebuild, as I guessed that was the intent of the command the previous poster listed (even though he didn't grab my PORTDIR_OVERLAY from the emerge info).

These were what I had (and still have) in PORTDIR_OVERLAY
./net-www/tomcat/tomcat-4.1.29.ebuild (and supporting files)
./net-fs/samba/samba-3.0.1.ebuild (and supporting files)
./dev-python/yappy/yappy-1.2.1.ebuild (and supporting files)

None of the above reference any gnome particulars.

I generally don't need to do many custom ebuilds, so my ebuilds shouldn't have been related to the problem.  I haven't changed them since before the sync that caused the problem, nor have I changed them since...
Comment 6 Nicholas Jones (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-04-12 18:17:12 UTC
That's an extremely weird place for that error message and I
can only imagine it being caused by something very oddly named in
the portage tree... like 'ebook-gtk-2.0-2.0.ebuild'

That particular traceback is not recoverable and won't be "fixed".
