Description jorgicio 2017-11-07 22:01:51 UTC

I noticed what 1.63 version of boost-related packages became stable. However, it conflicts with libreoffice- because it needs 1.62.

This happens when I try to do a emerge @world.

WARNING: One or more updates/rebuilds have been skipped due to a dependency conflict:


  (dev-libs/boost-1.63.0:0/1.63.0::gentoo, ebuild scheduled for merge) conflicts with
    >=dev-libs/boost-1.55:0/1.62.0= required by (app-office/libreoffice-bin-, installed)
    dev-libs/boost:0/1.62.0 required by (app-office/libreoffice-bin-, installed)

Reproducible: Always
Comment 1 Andreas K. Hüttel gentoo-dev 2017-11-07 22:41:25 UTC
Why does nobody tell me? :(
Comment 2 Jan Beinersdorf 2017-11-08 12:33:59 UTC
Same problem here.
Comment 3 Rodrigo Saboya 2017-11-08 20:57:49 UTC
Any pointers on how to deal with this? Simply updating the dependency on libreoffice-bin is enough to solve the issue?
Comment 4 Andreas K. Hüttel gentoo-dev 2017-11-08 20:59:57 UTC
I'm already building the new libreoffice-bin packages. If nothing goes wrong they should be available by the weekend. Until then the best idea is waiting. (Or if you haven't upgraded boost yet, mask the new boost.)

...except for one small problem: Trying to spellcheck a document crashes lowriter.

Do not ever mix packages built with <GCC-5 and >=GCC-5. We are unable to support you then.
Comment 9 Alarig Le Lay 2017-11-13 09:09:31 UTC

Thanks for the fix :) When do you thinks that the version will be marked as stable?

I use ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~amd64" and masking >dev-libs/boost-1.63.0 solves it but figured I should report this.
Comment 11 Anton Bolshakov 2017-11-14 04:10:54 UTC
please fast forward libreoffice-bin- stabilization as it breaks stable user's setup.
Comment 12 Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2017-11-14 08:10:46 UTC
It is in progress.

That's not a bug. libreoffice-bin is only built with stable deps.
Comment 14 Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2017-12-05 11:23:28 UTC
app-office/libreoffice-bin- is no longer in tree.
