Description Sergey S. Starikoff 2015-04-16 07:32:58 UTC
Trying to execute `equery list @system' (or @world) I've got a TypeError:
$ equery list @world
 * Searching for @world ...
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python-exec/python3.3/equery", line 38, in <module>

    raise TypeError(err % (self.__class__, other.__class__))
TypeError: other isn't of <class 'gentoolkit.atom.Atom'> type, is <class 'portage.versions._pkg_str'>

Yes, I realize that use of @set as pkgname parameter isn't supported (though, it can be useful), but human-readable error message would be more appropriate than unhandled exception.

Also, 'equery list --help' provides format description:
Usage: list [options] pkgspec
But neither short help message, nor equery's manual page, nor nor portage or emerge manual pages provides info about _required_ argument 'pkgspec'.
Probably we should either change it to 'atom' or provide at least reference to a description of 'pkgspec' entry.

Comment 1 Paul Varner (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2015-06-02 20:49:01 UTC
Actually, equery list is supposed to support sets, so this is an actual bug in the set handling. I'm currently tracking what the bug actually is.
Comment 2 Paul Varner (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2015-06-02 22:13:48 UTC
This is now fixed in git.  You can test with gentoolkit-9999

Working set support is actually quite cool, for example:

$ equery list @live-rebuild
 * Searching for @live-rebuild ...

[IP-] [  ] app-portage/gentoolkit-dev-9999:0
[IP-] [  ] app-portage/layman-9999:0

Comment 3 Juraj Variny 2016-01-26 23:33:48 UTC
Just ran into this, when it's going to be released?
(Sorry for stupid question. Maybe if you linked the git commit ID, I'd have figured it out myself.)

(In reply to Juraj Variny from comment #3)
> Just ran into this, when it's going to be released?

It is released in gentoolkit-0.3.1

However, revdep-rebuild changes to a new python version in that version so depending on why you are using ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="amd64", you may or may not want to keyword that package.
