Description Luca Barbato gentoo-dev 2015-03-27 23:45:38 UTC
Emerging on an empty system pocl with VIDEO_CARDS=intel it triggers installing the ati-drivers if the useflag opencl is set.

Might be nicer to use VIDEO_CARDS to trigger which dependencies should be needed.

The useflag opencl triggers ati-drivers, because hwloc with the useflag-opencl works only with ati. Then without ati you have to use -opencl.

	gl? ( || ( x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers[static-libs,tools] media-video/nvidia-settings ) )
	opencl? ( x11-drivers/ati-drivers:* )

How are those flags supposed to make sense? I get the package is a completely mess and supports only random features of random proprietary drivers but you can do better with those flags.

Seriously, nvidia-drivers isn't the only OpenGL provider and fglrx isn't the only OpenCL provider. VIDEO_CARDS would make more sense here, or any flag stating what it's really about.

That said, considering lack of cluster@ response for a long time: is anyone actually maintaining this or should it go m-needed?
