Description aditsu 2013-07-05 08:39:39 UTC
I'm using gentoolkit-; I upgraded kde from 4.10.3 to 4.10.4, but eclean-dist is not deleting any of the 4.10.3 distfiles

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install kde 4.10.3, upgrade to 4.10.4 (kdelibs might be enough for testing, I'm not sure)
2. eclean-dist
3. ls /usr/portage/distfiles/*4.10.3*
Actual Results:  
a bunch of kde 4.10.3 distfiles

Expected Results:  
no matches found

Comment 1 Brian Dolbec gentoo-dev 2013-07-05 11:33:11 UTC
This sounds like normal behavior.  What is the exact command you are using?

eclean does not delete other versions of installed pkgs unless you use the --destructive option.  This makes it easier to downgrade without the need to download the sources again.
Comment 2 aditsu 2013-07-05 11:49:15 UTC
Hmm I guess I was mistaken then. I ran "eclean-dist", and was not aware that it didn't delete old versions. I find the "--destructive" option misleading, as it doesn't remove anything that's required by the currently installed packages.
"eclean-dist -d" seems to do exactly what I want, and it's much faster too.
Comment 3 Brian Dolbec gentoo-dev 2013-07-05 12:24:35 UTC
yeah, --destructive could have been named --minimal, but that's what  inherited.
Comment 4 aditsu 2013-07-05 15:41:59 UTC
One suggestion is to rename --destructive to --deep (so that -d stays the same), and keep --destructive as alternative syntax for compatibility. Deep as in deep cleaning :)
Comment 5 Paul Varner (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2013-07-08 18:33:05 UTC
Since this was a quick and simple change, I've implemented and pushed it into the repository.;a=commit;h=0bd71cd8a16b54c9392afa30821e578315d53807

It can be tested with gentoolkit-9999
Comment 6 Paul Varner (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2013-09-05 17:21:53 UTC
Released in gentoolkit-
