Description Lars Tiefland 2004-05-13 12:21:53 UTC
When I try to emerge phpBB it gives me the following report:

 * Ebuilds (like this one) that use the webapp-apache.eclass need to
 * be converted to use the new webapp.eclass, to be compatible with
 * webapp-config.
 * Please file a bug on, stating that this
 * ebuild needs converting to use the new approach.
 * You need to unmerge your old phpBB version first.
 * phpBB will be installed into /var/www/localhost/htdocs//phpbb
 * directly instead of a version-dependant directory.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.emerge sync
2.ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~x86" emerge phpBB

Actual Results:  
emerge tells me to file a bug report here.

Expected Results:  
phpBB should have been installed in /var/www/localhost/htdocs/phpbb

Thank you for this.  I've added your changes to Portage as net-www/phpBB-2.0.8a-r1.  It should appear on your local rsync mirror in about an hour.  Please test it, and let me know whether it works for you.

Comment 3 Sven Wegener gentoo-dev 2004-05-18 04:51:36 UTC
works fine here, besides the error in bug 51377 which is a failure of webapp-config
Comment 4 Jason Wever (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-05-18 19:48:25 UTC
The fixes generate the following error for me.  This on a ~sparc machine with everything up to date as of this morning and phpBB up to date as of ~ 5 minutes ago.  Is this a legitamate problem or did I not RTFM someplace?

 * This ebuild did not call webapp_src_install() at the end
 * of the src_install() function
 * Please log a bug on
 * You should use emerge -C to remove this package, as the
 * installation is incomplete

Hm, just unmerged net-www/phpBB-2.0.8a-r1 and re-emerged it. I'm having
no problems. Running x86 and net-www/webapp-config-1.9-r2.
Comment 6 Stuart Herbert (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-05-20 14:13:30 UTC
I've had other reports of the same error, about the ebuild not calling webapp_src_install().  I'm wondering if it is a portage thing.

Weeve, can you post emerge info please?

Best regards,
