Description Sean Santos 2013-02-26 05:31:13 UTC
dev-python/python-selinux-2.16-r3 tries to install to /usr/lib/python2.x/site-packages/ This is hard-coded in the Makefile. However, multilib-strict requires it to be installed to /usr/lib64.

Reproducible: Always

Note that dev-python/python-selinux-2.16-r2 had a QA warning for not respecting LDFLAGS, which was bug 355675. This was solved by 2.16-r3, but that is still not stabilized.

I might even drop the package if there is nothing depending on it. We don't use it in our SELinux bindings (since upstream support is sufficient) and it seems to be a gentoo-specific package.

Depending packages:


The portage version is old and masked already, so probably going to disappear soon.

For python-slip:

I don't think these use the SELinux bindings
Comment 3 Sean Santos 2013-03-17 16:55:27 UTC
Actually, that makes me realize that I'm not sure why I have it installed anymore. "equery d python-selinux" yields nothing for me.
Comment 4 Sven Vermeulen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2013-04-06 13:14:12 UTC
Ok, removed dependency from the python-slip and will mask the package.
Comment 5 Sven Vermeulen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2013-04-07 13:19:00 UTC
mask set and last rites sent
