Description Viktor Levin 2018-08-15 17:58:44 UTC
If I add PORTDIR="/usr/portage" to /etc/portage/make.conf, euses works properly. But if I remove this line, euses doesn't work:

$ euses vdpau
PORTDIR not found

app-portage/euses-2.5.9 cannot obtain $PORTDIR from portageq. But $PORTDIR in make.conf is obsolete and deprecated.

This bug also blocks bug
Comment 2 Viktor Levin 2019-03-19 02:00:24 UTC
Any progress here?
Comment 3 Jeroen Roovers (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2019-03-19 07:40:37 UTC
euses checks for an environment variable PORTDIR. Does this help?
Comment 4 Ben Kohler gentoo-dev 2019-09-23 16:09:40 UTC
This tool needs to be updated to not depend on the deprecated PORTDIR variable
Comment 5 Arfrever Frehtes Taifersar Arahesis 2019-09-24 02:32:09 UTC
Since euses is written in C language, you can implement similar solution as was done in portage-utils project, i.e. using dev-libs/iniparser to parse repos.conf:
