It seems that we can't use spaces in SRC_URI when we create an ebuild.
I have try to use "%20" or "\ " instead of a space and I continue to have an error.
Then, how can I use a space in a SRC_URI ? Or can you improve the ebuild system to support spaces in SRC_URI ?
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use a SRC_URI with spaces in an ebuild. For example : http://www.kde-look.org/content/files/10039-Deep%20Plastik.kcsrc
I have an error when I do an "ebuild myebuild.ebuild digest"
To download the file and do a MD5sum.
hmm, spaces are used as seperators, I don't see a good way to support this. %20 might work for wget, but not for the internal portage functions (or should we use urldecode ?).
yeah, the spaces arent valid URI's anyways :)
I agree but Portage seems to do not support "%20" in URI...
Spaces aren't supported... but we probably could add urldecode to work it out.
Feel free to post a patch.
Putting a hold on feature requests for portage as they are drowning out the
bugs. Most of these features should be available in the next major version of
portage. But for the time being, they are just drowning out the major bugs and
delaying the next version's progress.
Any bugs that contain patches and any bugs for etc-update or dispatch-conf can
be reopened. Sorry, I'm just not good enough with bugzilla. ;)
Consider this closed as WONTFIX (the problem is the local filename, not the url).
