Description Francisco León 2002-08-09 15:25:43 UTC
When updating gail, new files is created. Nautilus crashes
because it is looking for old version 16
So nautilus needs to be rebuilt...

I put this here instead of ebuilds to make a point. Gentoo needs to backtrack
dependencies to which package depends on which one, so if one is rebuilt, emerge
--update world should show "packages that needs rebuilding" or something

Even though I unmerge nautilus and remerge (nautilus-2.0.2) it doesn't start.
nautilus: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open
shared object file: No such file or directory
Comment 2 Francisco León 2002-08-10 09:52:13 UTC
Yeah, i saw that, but it's easily fixable. Just make a link with that name to 
the new file
Comment 3 Andreas Kotowicz 2002-08-15 07:51:52 UTC
this also makes gedit, gnome-terminal and yelp unusable. creating a link "ln -s" doesn't help

I'm closing this bug for now, as it is a known issue related to the Portage
system itself.

You're right in that Gentoo needs a way to ``backtrack dependencies'', but the
implementation of that feature is not as easy as it might appear. Many
additional features need to be introduced along with it in order to keep things
like users' per-package USE settings from breaking.

However, don't you worry, for our Chief Architect is aware of the problem and
plans to introduce these features soon. This lack of backtracking deps has
caused a lot of troubles already :)
