Description N. Andrew Walsh 2015-10-31 15:00:13 UTC
the ebuild for calibre-2.35 contains the following:


as well as:


for whatever reason, 'emerge -uD world' does not cause virtual/podofo-build to update, so it stays at 0.9.2 while app-text/podofo gets updated to 0.9.3. The next run of 'emerge @presereved-rebuild then causes a downgrade of podofo back to 0.9.2, and a remerge of calibre. The next 'emerge -uD world' does not see the dependency, and updates podofo again.

This goes on forever until I manually run 'emerge -1 podofo-build && emerge calibre' after deleting /usr/lib64/libpodofo-so.0.9.2. 

Is there something wrong with how the ebuild is handling its dependencies?


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge calibre against podofo-0.9.2 and virtual/podofo-build-0.9.2
2. emerge -uD world, which updates podofo but not podofo-build
3. emerge @preserved-rebuild
4. GOTO 1.
Actual Results:  
upgrade/downgrade loop 

Expected Results:  
checked that the dependency for virtual/podofo-build was also updated on 'emerge -uD world'

Can you add emerge --info please?

Assuming that app-text/calibre is listed in /var/lib/portage/world, an explanation for this is that --with-bdeps=y is not enabled, so calibre's DEPEND is not pulled into the dependency graph because calibre is not currently scheduled for rebuild or upgrade.

There are a number of things that could trigger this downgrade. You might check a couple of things:

1) Verify that virtual/podofo-build-0.9.3 is not masked:
     emerge -pv --nodeps =virtual/podofo-build-0.9.3

2) Try running emerge --depclean before emerge @preserved-rebuild, since @preserved-rebuild can pull in packages which are eligible for removal by emerge --depclean, leading to undesirable results in many cases.
Comment 4 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2015-12-06 19:48:08 UTC
(In reply to Zac Medico from comment #3)
3) Try running 'emerge -uD --selective=n @preserved-rebuild', since that might help it pull in the virtual/podofo-build update. You need to use --selective=n with -u, since -u implies --selective which makes @preserved-rebuild ineffective.
Comment 5 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2015-12-06 20:09:01 UTC
0) Add --with-bdeps=y to your emerge -uD @world command. It results in a more complete update, mitigating issues that may result from missed updates for things like podofo-build.
Comment 6 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2017-05-10 20:33:31 UTC
We've got --with-bdeps=y automatically enabled in portage-2.3.5 (bug 598444).
