Description Chris Slycord 2004-07-17 14:08:49 UTC
The build for the program "app-admin/testdisk-5.3" indicates that it depends on "reiserfsprogs" but from (official site for testdisk) it clearly depends on "progsreiserfs."  When I began to emerge testdisk, it indicated outputed the following:
"configure: WARNING: No reiserfs library detected."

This means that the current ebuild of testdisk will not work with reiserfs partitions because progsreiserfs is masked by default.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:

Just to mention, I was able to get reiserfs support into testdisk by manually configuring/installing progsreiserfs using the version linked at the official testdisk site.

see bug #51773 as to why progsreiserfs is blocked out.
until upstream fixes it, not much can be done.
Comment 3 Chris Slycord 2006-12-28 23:02:15 UTC
This bug crept up again.

Versions 5.9 and 6.2 both have

reiserfs? ( sys-fs/reiserfsprogs )

Whereas all the other versions of this package in portage that allow for reiserfs support (versions 5.7, 6.3, 6.4, and 6.5) have
reiserfs? ( >=sys-fs/progsreiserfs-0.3.1_rc8 )

Though I can't reopen as I didn't remember having 2 accounts on here.
