Description Octavian 2013-08-16 20:55:29 UTC
The message below "6 more with the same problem" should be extended to include all packages since it is very useful information for determining the conflict/missing keyworded packages.



  (dev-qt/qtcore-4.8.4-r5::gentoo, ebuild scheduled for merge) pulled in by
    ~dev-qt/qtcore-4.8.4[aqua=,debug=,qt3support] required by (dev-qt/qt3support-4.8.4::gentoo, ebuild scheduled for merge)
    (and 6 more with the same problem)

  (dev-qt/qtcore-4.8.5::gentoo, installed) pulled in by
    ~dev-qt/qtcore-4.8.5[aqua=,debug=,qt3support=] required by (dev-qt/qtopengl-4.8.5::gentoo, installed)
    (and 9 more with the same problem)

In some cases there can be hundreds of packages and it's not really helpful to show all of them. I guess we could add an option to control it.

For now, you can use emerge --debug output, which includes a "digraph" display showing which packages pulled in what.
Comment 2 Octavian 2013-08-18 09:51:16 UTC
Thanks, I will try --debug next time.

The reason for writing the ticket is that I had a hard time updating to KDE 4.11 due to qt conflicts. I had few old qt-4.8.4 at the same time with qt-4.8.5. If portage would have given me all packages "with the same problem" I would have seen much faster what the problem was.

This is fixed in 2.2.7.
