Description Sven 2014-01-11 16:44:02 UTC
Hi,

recently, biber 1.8 was added and biber 1.7 was removed from the portage tree. As the biber developers are the opposite of conservative as far as their dependencies are concerned, biber 1.8 (indirectly) depends on perl 5.18 which is still masked.

However, it was no problem to install biber 1.7 on a system with perl 5.16 (which is stable I think). Only a few unstable (but non-masked) perl modules were required.

So please keep biber 1.7 in portage.

Reproducible: Always
Comment 1 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2014-01-11 17:00:36 UTC
It doesn't depend on perl-5.18 (otherwise it couldn't be in the tree unmasked as perl-5.18 is still hardmasked). Please provide complete error, I think portage could be wrongly resolving the autounmask for some reason (I hit a similar problem some days ago but forgot to save the errors :S)
Comment 2 Sven 2014-01-11 20:08:08 UTC
biber depends on dev-perl/autovivification which depends on virtual/perl-Exporter. The latter pulled in perl 5.18. I now added perl-core/Exporter to portage.keywords and the problem went away. Sorry for the noise.
Comment 3 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2014-01-11 20:48:00 UTC
Anyway, I think portage should resolve it better as it can be satisfied without unmasking the hardmasked perl. Could you provide your "emerge --info" output? Portage team, what more information could help you? I remember to hit this in a similar way when emerging latest amavid-new, but I "solved" it running emerge with the autounmask switch to prevent unmasking hardmasked packages :/

The virtual/perl-Exporter dependency that triggered the problem looks like this:

  || ( =dev-lang/perl-5.18* ~perl-core/Exporter-5.680.0 )

If both packages are masked, the dependency resolver (dep_zapdeps function) simply chooses the dependency on the left. Instead, we want it to choose the choice which requires the least unmasking (keyword masking vs. package.mask).
