Description Toralf Förster gentoo-dev 2017-01-17 14:36:22 UTC
When I switch at a fresh new tinderbox image from installed GCC from stage3 to the freshly emerged (unstable) GCC, then revdep-rebuild always remarks the following :

tinderbox@mr-fox ~ $ cat run/desktop-unstable_20170117-114911/tmp/task.log

 * If you intend to use the gcc from the new profile in an already
 * running shell, please remember to do:

 *   . /etc/profile

 * This is the new python coded version

These are the packages that would be merged, in reverse order:

I do wonder, why those files are orphaned ?

AH - and this is a type, or ? : "Dependant"
Comment 2 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2017-02-15 08:27:47 UTC
where exactly are you getting that report ?  gcc doesn't generate it.

my guess is you have a SYMLINK_LIB=yes system and you're getting a mismatch in paths due to gcc installing into /usr/lib/gcc/.

gcc-config --nocolor
outputs this AFAICT
Comment 4 Toralf Förster gentoo-dev 2017-02-15 08:48:58 UTC

$> gcc-config --nocolor <new version>
I meant

err, i don't think so.  i don't recall ever writing that kind of message, or having gcc-config do orphan file detection (it has no reason to).  grepping its files shows no hits either.

gcc-config shows the first few lines of that output, but it stops at the ". /etc/profile" line.  everything after that is not gcc-config.

if revdep-rebuild is confused by SYMLINK_LIB=yes, then it's not really a problem with gcc.

(In reply to SpanKY from comment #5)
indeed, it comes from :

%revdep-rebuild --ignore --library -- --exclude gcc

which has this string:

revdep_rebuild/ yellow('This is the new python coded version'))
Comment 7 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2017-02-15 15:39:00 UTC
prob just sit on it until we kill SYMLINK_LIB=yes
