I tried to emerge glibc-2.3.4-20041006 in my 2004.2 ppc64, but failed in the stage of install with:
"stat '/var/tmp/portage/glibc-2.3.4-20041006/temp/thread-backup/*': no such file or directory".
I have "nptlonly" in USE.
I tried to emerge it without "nptlonly" too, but also failed with complaining libpthread.so.0 not existing in must_exist() function of ebuild.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="ppc64 ~ppc64" emerge glibc
Failed in the stage of install
if you have your USE set to nptl you should be fine.
But I did just fix a similiar bug in glibc-2.3.4-0808. I should see about moving that fix forward.
No, not fine:
!!!ERROR: sys-libs/glibc-18.104.22.16841021 failed.
!!!Function must_exist,Line 817,Exitcode 1
!!!/lib//libpthread.so.0 was not installed
When I had "nptl"(not nptlonly) in USE.
I get the same thing. Apparently libpthread.so.0 is installed in /lib64 ...
20041021 seems to be fixed in portage now -- I just emerged it successfully.
OK.. I'll close this bug then.
