Description Tim Ellis 2004-07-30 17:50:02 UTC
compiles and works on macos by adding keyword

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
Comment 1 Hasan Khalil (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-08-11 09:23:48 UTC
>>> Completed installing into /var/tmp/portage/surfraw-1.0.7/image/

* checking 49 files for package collisions
existing file /usr/bin/W is not owned by this package
* spend 0.112397193909 seconds checking for file collisions
* This package is blocked because it wants to overwrite
* files belonging to other packages (see messages above).

/usr/bin/W on mac os looks like the same as 'who' on gnu/linux...
Ideas, anyone?
Comment 2 Mamoru KOMACHI (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-08-11 09:48:19 UTC
/usr/bin/W is /usr/bin/w (note that root partition is likely to be case-insensitive on Mac OS X), and /usr/bin/w is one of the common Unix utilities.
Comment 3 Hasan Khalil (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-08-11 11:05:38 UTC
right right right. forgot about the case insensitivity. ideas on a workaround? creating a g<util> out of this would be hell...
Comment 4 James Rowe 2005-10-14 22:05:24 UTC
  Any chance of testing a recent v2 surfraw ebuild, /usr/bin is no longer 
populated with stacks of scripts.  If W is the only clash it shouldn't cause any
significant problems to work around it for macos, as it isn't a necessity for
surfraw usage anyway(just a wrapper for opening the surfraw defined browser).
Comment 5 Fabian Groffen gentoo-dev 2005-10-15 00:15:37 UTC
It still collides with the system because of /usr/bin/W.
Comment 6 James Rowe 2006-10-20 18:01:41 UTC
  I'm going to assume comment #5 was an answer to my question, and only 
/usr/bin/W collides in v2+.  If that is the case the latest update to 2.1.5(in 
Bug #150945) fixes that.
Comment 7 Fabian Groffen gentoo-dev 2006-10-21 00:51:56 UTC
Added in prefix, looks fine.
