The build for the program "app-admin/testdisk-5.3" indicates that it depends on "reiserfsprogs" but from http://www.cgsecurity.org/index.html?testdisk.html (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.
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. http://www.cgsecurity.org/progsreiserfs-0.3.1-rc8.tar.gz
see bug #51773 as to why progsreiserfs is blocked out.
until upstream fixes it, not much can be done.
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.
