Description Daniel Wirengren 2004-05-27 15:37:38 UTC
It would be nice if ufed had support for changing USE-flags in /etc/portage/package.use.

One solution could be to extend ufed with a argument of a package name.
Ufed then only shows the relevant USE-flags in it's listing and lets the user set them.
Then ufed changes the /etc/portage/package.use accordingly.

There was a short discussion on gentoo-dev about this.
"[gentoo-dev] ufed / USE-Flags Grouping Suggestion"

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:

I second that and I think there should also be a flag that no local flags
are shown in ufed (or that be the default) and that ufed only changes them when
called with a package name as argument as suggested by the OP.

ufed is unmaintained and dying, it will be replaced by other tools soon that should have this functionality.
Comment 3 Frank Benkstein 2004-12-08 20:11:58 UTC
Could you please point me to any of these other tools?
I really liked ufed b/c it only had three dependencies
(or so) and so was useable even before "emerge system".

The one that is in portage is app-portage/profuse, another one that will get in the future is
