Description Sergey S. Starikoff 2016-06-20 10:55:57 UTC
For now I use squashed portage tree.
When at least one node (overlay) was mounted without read-access (for example 750 portage:portage and user not into portage group) execution of equery utility fails with output trace:

$ equery u net-fs/nfs-utils
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib64/python3.4/site-packages/portage/", line 119, in update_eclasses
    eclass_filenames = os.listdir(x)

    rval = self._func(*wrapped_args, **wrapped_kwargs)
PermissionError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: b'/usr/portage/local/eclass'

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

portage.exception.PermissionDenied: /usr/portage/local/eclass

I expect equery perform a check and output some more readable error message.

Comment 1 Sergey S. Starikoff 2016-06-20 10:57:35 UTC
Probably similiar issue with the same version of app-portage/gentoolkit, see bug #550862
