Description David Grant 2004-03-29 14:06:56 UTC
For some reason world wants to install gimp-1.2.5.  I currently have only gimp-2.0 installed.

bash-2.05b# emerge -uvpD world

These are the packages that I would merge, in order:

Calculating world dependencies ...done!
[ebuild  N    ] media-gfx/gimp-1.2.5  +aalib -doc -gnome +jpeg +nls +perl +png +    python +tiff  10,630 kB 

Running qpkg shows that gimp-1.2.5 is somehow depended on by gimp-2.0.0:

bash-2.05b$ qpkg -q gimp-1.2.5

seems unlikely, we need more info than this really. 
Comment 2 David Grant 2004-03-30 13:27:42 UTC
I will give out more info on request...

no seriously, what other info would be useful?  This bug mystifies me as well...
Comment 3 Spider (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-03-30 22:50:36 UTC
seems to be a qpkg bug
Comment 4 David Grant 2004-03-30 22:54:01 UTC
If it was only a qpkg bug then why would emerge -uvpD world want to install gimp-1.2.5?  Can someone tell me what I have installed that requires gimp-1.2.5?
Comment 5 Marius Mauch (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-04-21 19:24:10 UTC
can you run the following command and post the output here?

find /var/db/pkg -name "*DEPEND"|xargs grep gimp

A few weeks ago I just removed gimp-2.0.0 and the problem went away.  The problem didn't return when I re-installed gimp-2.0.0 either.

But still it WAS a problem and a rather annoying one.  I wish I hadn't fixed it.

bash-2.05b# find /var/db/pkg -name "*DEPEND"|xargs grep gimp
/var/db/pkg/media-gfx/gimp-2.0.0/RDEPEND:       gimpprint? ( =media-gfx/gimp-print-4.2* )
/var/db/pkg/media-gfx/gimp-2.0.0/DEPEND:        gimpprint? ( =media-gfx/gimp-print-4.2* )
Comment 7 Jürgen Brescher 2004-04-26 08:52:06 UTC
I've the same problem here. After the emerge of gimp-2.0.0 'emerge -uU world' would install gimp-1.2.5

bash-2.05b$ find /var/db/pkg -name "*DEPEND" | xargs grep gimp
/var/db/pkg/media-gfx/gimp-2.0.0/RDEPEND:       gimpprint? ( =media-gfx/gimp-print-4.2* )
/var/db/pkg/media-gfx/gimp-2.0.0/DEPEND:        gimpprint? ( =media-gfx/gimp-print-4.2* )
Comment 8 Luke Hoersten 2004-05-27 10:40:37 UTC
The problem has something to do with /usr/share/gimp. So to install GIMP-2.0.0, you must first unmerge GIMP-1.2.5 _and_ delete /usr/share/gimp or else GIMP-1.2.5 will still hold the GIMP package name and the command 'gimp' wont start 2.0.0.
Comment 9 Jürgen Brescher 2004-06-01 01:06:44 UTC
I don't even have had gimp 1.2.5 installed.
