Description Oleg Korsak 2017-02-16 00:16:10 UTC
* ERROR: media-gfx/freecad-9999::gentoo failed (prepare phase):
 *   The source directory '/var/tmp/portage/media-gfx/freecad-9999/work/FreeCAD-9999' doesn't exist

but there is a little bit another name:

# ls /var/tmp/portage/media-gfx/freecad-9999/work/

Case is sensitive I think )
Comment 1 Simon 2017-02-20 17:20:45 UTC
Can confirm this. Probably caused by the recent update to the 9999-ebuild, which includes using git-r3

It already sets S tot the correct path, but that apparently isn't being picked up by git-r3

Comment 3 Simon 2017-03-13 19:21:39 UTC
Sorry, I was wrong, this was caused by a typo (capitalized "FreeCAD" vs "freecad") in the definition of "${S}".

Has been fixed here
Actually ${S} has been removed entirely now since it isn't actually necessary, see

So this bug can be closed
P.S. There are other issues with freecad-9999 at the moment, but they are not related to this bug, I'm trying to get them fixed upstream
