Description Paul Collins 2004-09-14 09:54:52 UTC
First I put in package.keywords ati-drivers ~x86 
Then I emerged ati-drivers on it's own (not via world -Du), now when I say emerge world -Du it wants to install ati-drivers 3.9.0. This is after a very recent emerge sync. 

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add "ati-drivers ~x86" to /etc/portage/package.keywords
2. emerge ati-drivers
3. emerge ati-drivers -Dup
4. emerge ati-drivers -p

Actual Results:  
step 3: (please note, this is on my system, so these other things are just
normal upgrades. The bottom one is the one of interest)

Calculating world dependencies ...done!
[ebuild     U ] dev-util/indent-2.2.9-r1 [2.2.9] 
[ebuild     U ] net-fs/samba-3.0.7 [3.0.6-r4] 
[ebuild     U ] media-libs/id3lib-3.8.3-r3 [3.8.3-r2] 
[ebuild  N    ] app-text/recode-3.6-r1  
[ebuild     U ] games-misc/fortune-mod-1.99.1 [1.0.9708-r1] 
[ebuild  N    ] media-video/ati-drivers-3.9.0-r1  

step 4:
Calculating dependencies ...done!
[ebuild   R   ] media-video/ati-drivers-3.12.0  

Expected Results:  
Step 3 should not even list the ati-drivers. Much less should it say that
ati-drivers is a New package. 

Another oddity is that when I wanted to upgrade the ati-drivers, portage decided
that when I did an emerge ati-drivers -p that the 3.11.??? driver was a New
package. It should have said that it was an Upgrade.

try again please maybe it could be related to the missing of ati-driver-extra-3.12.0
Comment 2 Paul Collins 2004-09-14 14:33:40 UTC
That appears to have fixed it. Thanks.

Added ati-drivers-extra to package.keywords.
