Description Pavel Volkov 2013-07-27 06:34:52 UTC
I noticed that portage-2.2.0_alpha189 introduced some changes.
eix-update is broken for me on systemd-overlay from layman currently.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
sudo eix-update

Comment 2 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2013-07-27 06:40:58 UTC
Does it help if you set PORTDIR="/usr/portage" in make.conf?
Comment 3 Pavel Volkov 2013-07-27 06:43:35 UTC
Comment 4 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2013-07-27 06:51:55 UTC
It looks like the issue is that eix does not export the new PORTAGE_ECLASS_LOCATIONS variable which is now required by;a=commit;h=56f416255d0fd5ccf29c08af2eb983080be40dc4
Comment 5 Arfrever Frehtes Taifersar Arahesis 2013-07-27 07:02:25 UTC
A workaround is to use e.g. PORTDIR_CACHE_METHOD="sqlite" and OVERLAY_CACHE_METHOD="sqlite" in eix configuration.
Comment 6 Martin Väth 2013-07-27 18:24:32 UTC
Thanks, Zac: Exporting a sane PORTAGE_ECLASS_LOCATIONS in eix fixes it.
This is done in eix git master on BerliOS (>=eix-0.29.2).

The problem occurs only with eix's cache method "ebuild*", so even
PORTDIR_CACHE_METHOD="parse|ebuild" # instead of "parse|ebuild*"
can be used as a (slow) workaround.

Of course the better way is anyway to generate metadata for the overlay with egencache as described on the eix manpage in section SPEEDUP.
Comment 7 Arfrever Frehtes Taifersar Arahesis 2013-07-27 23:07:02 UTC
By the way, PORTAGE_REPO_NAME could be exported in ebuild environment so that it is included in error messages.
(The attachment shows "ERROR: app-admin/syslog-ng-3.3.5-r2:: failed (depend phase):" as expansion of "ERROR: ${CATEGORY}/${PF}::${PORTAGE_REPO_NAME} failed${phase_str}:".)

Is there a current live ebuild for this?
Comment 10 Nikos Chantziaras 2013-07-28 14:37:28 UTC
I have the same problem with portage, so it's not specific to portage 2.2.

In the mv overlay
Comment 12 Thomas Deutschmann gentoo-dev Security 2013-08-04 20:59:43 UTC
Today I hit the same problem on ~amd64: All my ebuilds in my overlays failed with

 * <eclass-name>.eclass could not be found by inherit()

 * The specific snippet of code:
 *   		[[ -z ${location} ]] && die "${1}.eclass could not be found by inherit()"

Comment 13 thomas 2013-08-04 21:21:35 UTC
I had the same problem with the roslin overlay and portage alpha. Had to add


and not


to /etc/eixrc to fix it.

# eix-update --dump | grep -C 5 CACHE_METHOD

...still showing the error (I called 'eix-update' about 10 times, every run failed with the same error).

# OVERLAY_CACHE_METHOD="parse|ebuild*" eix-update

...still showing the error.

# OVERLAY_CACHE_METHOD="parse|ebuild" eix-update

Run without errors.

# OVERLAY_CACHE_METHOD="parse|ebuild*" eix-update

Will now also run without errors...

# eix-update

Seems like

# OVERLAY_CACHE_METHOD="parse|ebuild*" eix-update

did some magic I don't understand yet?!
Comment 15 Michael Weber (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2013-08-07 09:16:53 UTC
Please update to eix-0.29.3.
